Farewell for Now

Tomorrow it the BIG day! I honestly cannot believe it's here already. I remember when  I had 120 days, that seemed so far away, now It's 1 day! 1 whole day!! :) 

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
 We also went to Disneyland (which is one of my absolute favorite places on earth, thank you mom and dad)
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. 
Todd. The stud. You always know how to make me laugh. Your my example even though we're almost 4 years younger.  I wont see you for 3 1/2 years....but we get to serve together. What could make me happier?? I love you! 

 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!
How cute are my parents?  
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!

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!!
