What people talk about when they hear you're getting married

What are your colors? for the wedding or my curtains?

Are you having a kid next year? just because you become Mr. and Mrs. doesn't mean you have to add junior the next day. 

what does your dress look like? It's white. :)

where you going on your honeymoon? really? I'll tell you when I get back.

or the statement. " So this is the bride to be!!" and proceed to kiss my hand.

You nervous, you sure He's the one? I am 100% sure, I am going to be spending the rest of my life with the one who makes me laugh, holds my heart and holds me close when the world is upside down. when you say yes to the most important question asked by your best friend, why would you not be sure? (unless you weren't?)

Lol I am supper excited and can not wait till September 18. :)

What do you do when you live in a big house with just a dog to keep you company? For you see my family has been away since February with the bee business, while I stay at home going to classes and taking care of the honey orders at home.  One night I had a thought. "hmm, I wounder, if my bed is the most comfortable in the house?" It's the smallest the only single twin in the house except for the loft where we keep an extra bed, for extra guest. So if no one is home, and no one is sleeping in those beds...why not try it. So I did, I confess and these are the results. One bed was too hard. One bed was too soft. One bed ok, but the pillows didn't fit right and it was kind of chilly. I even tried the couch but finally gave up and went to My bed. Just right. warm comfortable and the pillows just how I like them.  When I wake up in the morning I like looking at the trees out side my window soaking up the sun and the rolling hills that I miss every time I go away, and there are the flowers that sit on the chest  next to my bed that make me smile. Yes I have conclude my bed is the most comfortable.
How would I feel if I had not my bed?  Jesus replied "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."  One thing I have learned as I have traveled gone places, slept in guest beds, the floor, the air mattress, the couch, in the car, the hotel bed,  there is no place like my own bed the one I  rest upon and forget all my troubles of the days to give way to peaceful rest. I don't know but that is a hard thing to give up. "Thank you Lord for providing me with a comfortable bed to sleep on. If I am ever with out a place to rest. Please give me the strength to be okay with that."

Spring Break: Blue skies and Tall mountains(with lots of snow)

Spring break! who doesn't love spring break well it has come and gone for me, but my family and friends have been wanting to see some pictures of my westerly journey to the Colorado Rockies! Thanks to my two awesome cousins and Aunt I got to spend three whole days skiing in the rocky mountains, some time time in the hot springs and I even got some sunburn. :) 

exploring the "Garden of the god's"
You're impressed right? ;-)

just for the Lacelles 

now they picked a view to look at in the morning. 
just some of the mountain we skied/ boarded on 

now that's a mountain...

and that's a view!

Notice 3 things about the 3 musketeers. 1) hats are still on( hat hair)  2) short sleeves, yes we really did ski in short sleeves and tanks  3) our  faces are glowing after 3 days of  12000 ft elevation  (we forgot sunscreen) or maybe it's because we just spent 3 days having a blast. :)

SnOw SkIeS and ToRi has become a new favorite sport of mine.  According to google, "the sport of Skijoring behind a horse is to have originated as a method of winter travel, but today is primarily a competitive sport.Skijoring was a demonstrated sport  in the 1928 winter Olympics ."

Here is a bit of all the fun you all missed out on with our grand expedition, although we didn't catch the moment where Tori decides to stop short from a canter and all I see is Teddy's boots go on a flying trip over her head, or Elizabeth's sinking out of sight into a  4 foot snow bank, or my very graceful dismount from Tori's back to being flat on my back in very fluffy snowbank. But we had lots of laughs well worth it. Were headed to the big competions next. :) lol watch for us in the next winter Olympics. :)

Sabbath Mom and I discussed this verse and while looking over the sabbath school lesson a point was made. Make a list of things you encounter in your life that  are honest, just,pure,lovely ect.  and so I've thought about it and some of the things see in my life that are purely heavenly. why then do I get dragged down by the thoughts of the the worried world on rumors of war, the states taxes increasing,  classmate's gossip, or the times I failed. This is an incomplete written list of things pure & lovely in my life. But what of yours, whatever things are you considering....? 

Family. Grace Of God. Friends. My Home. Winter & Snowflakes. Spring & Song Birds. Summer & Feeling green grass between my toes. Autumn & bright colored leaves.  The inspiration I get when I think of doing something special for a friend.  When I am still & listen. Sunsets and Sunrises. Hugs. Wisdom.  Holding a brand new Baby. My dog who is so excited when I am back. The experiences God placed in my life to shape just me. Mirrors. A Meal with good Friends or Family. Feedback. Prayer. Honeycomb. Inspiring.  Home Made Gifts from friends. Laughs & Remembered Laughs. When someone starts a new train of thoughts in my head. Angels. Music & Art of the Good kind. Running. Smiles. Education & Understanding. Time. Home comings. Devotions. Rain....
