Today I finally met my true love. I think I am going to take him home with me to meet ma and pa. Should he choose to become apart our (my) immediate family I will give him a name, I guess you could consider it as a "pet name". It's Herman. I love him so much, so much that I'd even let him sleep with me in my room. Not in the same bed however, he has different needs such as sleeping with the light on. (never understood how he does that.) Anyways I met him today at PETCO, just happened to run into him on my way to look at the reptiles. I took a few pictures so you guys can get the same visual I'm getting...
I'm torn, I am so in love, but Herman just has a steep list of demands. He's a pricey little fetcher. What do you think, should I make him a permanent part of my life?

The assignment was to "Create a Dream". One of my dreams is to be a children's book author/illustrator. This is my first try at a book cover in Adobe Illustrator. :) This is my take on "Where the Wild Things Are" from my own childhood. This is my sister Jane and I. Yes I did have an outfit just like that.

Holy Moses, I am stunned and amazed at how often Heavenly Father prepares you in advance for certain moments in life. I am enrolled in institute currently (Women in the Scriptures) and it's awesome. Regardless of my lack of time, I am so glad I chose to take Institute. The way I listen best in class is by doodling, so, I always take my sketchbook to class with me and while I doodle I make notes of things that stick out to me. Today I was blessed to have a really important conversation with my brother Oliver, one that has the potential to be life changing. As the four of us were talking (parental advisors included) I was prompted to pull out my sketchbook. Unaware of the golden thoughts it obtained, I found the answer I felt I needed to share. It was a reminder to all of us, especially myself. Sometimes we get so caught up in the business of life we forget what is really important. (Thank you Alysha for posting that talk by Dieter F. Uchtdorf "Of Things That Matter Most.") Since I know you are all dying to know what the golden thought was, I'll reveal the secret to happiness. It was a big, bold P.T.L.F. Put The Lord First. Do this in your life and I promise Heavenly Father will bless you in whatever it is you need help with. :)
