well well well

I cant even begin to explain how much I'm loving this summer already. Not much has changed for me. My schedule is still the same, its not like I have some glorious break from long days of studying for tests and going to bed early for school the next day. I still wake up at 8:30am and get to work by 10, stand on my feet all the day long until 6pm finally decides to roll around so that I can go home. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, but it is definitely hard to sit inside and not get a tan while I watch 20 local kids line up in the parking lot outside the salon, in bathing suits waiting for their Tigers Blood snow cones.. which are divine. If I do say so myself. Anyhoo, although this summer hasn't necessarily meant a whole lot of change for me, I have still found so many things that I am love love lovinggggggg about my life right now. I not only get to wake up every morning in the bed next to one of my most favorite people, Haleigh Williams. But I also get to come home to her everyday... When she decides to be there ;). I also love sitting on my balcony and writing in my journal. Its not too often that I get to do so, and its even such a new habit for me that I am constantly putting off for other things, but when I actually get myself to do it, I LOVE IT! Its so nice to go back and read some things that I am experiencing at this time in my life. I have never kept up a journal religiously so I have never noticed how many things I actually forget! How many little tender mercies that I experience throughout the day that completely leave my brain the second that I wake up the next morning. I am starting to really enjoy spending time by myself. I'm probably, most definitely turning into a bit of a hermit or an anti-social awkward loser, whichever one you prefer but I mean, its fine. I never knew it was possible for me to become even more of a clean freak than I was before, but I find myself cleaning allll the time. If I have any second to spare while I'm at home, not writing in my journal on the balcony or enjoying very quality with myself, I start to clean! It is really starting to worry me actually, because I can feel myself turning into my mother. Which is not a bad thing whatsoever, but you know how when you're little you hear "horror stories" about woman that get married or move out and realize that they turned into their mother and it was just terrible? I don't think of it in that way, my mom is the cool mom. So I wouldn't mind turning into her. The fourth of July is this next week and I can hardly believe it! I was remembering the other day what I was doing last year around this time and its almost hilarious how much my life has changed. I don't want to say that I am in a better place than I was back then, buuut I'm definitely in a much MUCH better place than I was a year ago. I have learned so much about myself in the last few months. I wrote a post a while back at the beginning of the year about how I knew something good was about to come, and I can feel it right around the corner. Its like 'the headlights of the car are coming up the street and I can see them shining through the front window of the house' sort of idea. My testimony is probably the strongest it has ever been. I am so grateful for each and everything in my life, good and bad, past and present. I get to go home in a week and spend two whole weeks with my awesome awesome family! The few of you that actually read this know how obsessed I am with my family, because I say it all the time.. Which reminds me, TANNER BOYES YOU COME HOME IN 2O DAYS!!!! I cannot wait to see your perfect smiling face walk down that escalator!!!-

If Tanner is coming home, you know that means some major family bonding, way too much laughing and teasing and so much yummy food! As soon as the 4th of July passes, you can bet that I will be counting down the days. Which works out perfectly because then I will only have four more. I'm not quite sure why I had so much to say, or why I even wrote these specific things..  I am just way too happy these days and I wouldn't change a thing! Here's a few thoughts and simple pleasures I have enjoyed recently..
