Life is crazy

So life has been crazy. I can pin point the day it began getting crazy, Lauren's wedding. That was a crazy day! hahah If you saw me at the reception, I probably looked exhausted! I spent almost the whole time chasing my absolutely crazy daughter. The next morning we drove to Texas and spent a fun filled week with my family. We ended up leaving Jared there and flying back to Provo. Kylia and I have spent the past two weeks here in Utah alone. It has been quite the adventure FOR SURE!

It has been the first time in my life that I have been "on my own." It took a LOT of adjusting and a LOT of prayers. I really thought that I would go insane here by myself, but I have learned a ton since we got back. I have learned to rely more on my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I think that the Lord has been preparing me for this the past little while. I was really opposed to Jared leaving at first, but now I know that this is where I am supposed to be and Jared is where he is supposed to be (at least for now).

I have learned: that I don't have to do everything, I can't clean till my studying is done, the house doesn't have to be perfect, you are never really alone, it is better to play with Kylia first then study, and I love my husband more than anything!!!

Today is Easter and it has been a good day. Although I didn't get as much out of conference as I should have(way tired and a crazy daughter that demands attention), it was still very good. I felt like a lot of it was focused on parenting and being there for your children. It definitely taught me a few things. I am grateful for my Savior and this wonderful day that we have to remember him and feel the peace that he brings.

Happy Easter Everyone!!

And now I'm just getting all comment crazy. BUT, I just can't express my joy and pride in and for you Char! You TOTALLY made it through college with a husband and a baby. As I start thinking of that happening for me, it freaks me out a little. You're such a great example to me. I love you so much!
