I had my "farewell talk" on Easter Sunday, It was so great to see my family and friends again. I'm so grateful for their support.
|these guys. :) best family support (missing Elder Nelson Browning, Elder Tanner Browning, and the newly weds in Asia!)|
|Josh. I mean Elder Browning and I are going to be in the MTC together- HURRAH FOR ISRAEL!! (Thanks Becky for the picture...I stole it off your FB)|
My rock! I don't know what I'm going to do without this chica. We've never been apart for soo long. We can do this! Sleep over in 18?
We had a little family vacation to Southern California so I could see my missionary grandparents one more time before I left. I got to stay with them in their apartment and watch some of the missionary work they did. They are amazing!
I hope to be like them someday!
Also my grandpa can play tennis in a suit, how cool is that??
|Oh hello San Diego|
|What girl doesn't secretly wish she could live in that castle??|
We went to the beach in San Diego and toured around town. I feel in love with Seaport Village, they have the cutest little stores AND this amazing fudge store. We basically ended up buying one of everything.
|The smells coming out of this place should be illegal. Soo tempting|
|Cookies and cream caramel apple.... Get in my belly :)|
|What am I going to do without these girlies? Can't hug them enough.|
Mom. Thank you for being such a great example to me! I don't know what I'm going to do without talking to you every single day. I love you soo much! Can't wait to follow in your footsteps :)
Dad, Thanks for teaching me right and wrong.....and not getting upset at me when I hit trash cans with my car ....orrr cats....orrr telephone poles...orrrrr little birdies.....orrrrrr other cars. I'm so grateful for you! Thanks for teaching me how to work! I love you!
I'm a huge procrastinator so these last few days have been.....well just a little hectic. I am bound to forget something, I always do. Like the time I went to Washington D.C and forgot a weeks worth of Underwear (thank goodness for best friends) orr the time I left my whole suitcase at home, when I was on vacation for a week. Mostly I just forget my phone, toothbrushes etc. This time I just need to remember my scriptures!
|How cute are my parents?|
It's a bitter sweet thing, I'm honestly so excited to head out, It's hard to leave. But it's not a forever thing! Just 18 months :)
Also a special thanks for the fun lunch dates, I should leave more often ;)
For all those that are thinking about serving, do it! "If ye have a desire to serve ye are called to the work" -Doctrine and Covenants 4:3
Can't wait to start this new Adventure and hear about all of yours! LOVE YOU ALL!!
