What a wonderful time of year.

My birthday present was purchased this weekend because holiday sales are the best. Ever since living with the Tanya, I have wanted a pair of cowboy boots. Then I married a man who wears his boots every Sunday to church. Finally, he bought me a pair. Aren't they pretty?

I think so.

The air is cold and smells of cozy fireplaces. Thanksgiving is still fresh in our hearts. I am so grateful for my family, my friends, my husband and my daughter. I am thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the difference it makes in my life. I am grateful that we are getting by comfortably, with food in the cupboards and water in the pipes. We are so blessed.

Christmas is right around the corner. My decorations are still in their boxes, but they've made it from the garage to the house. I am excited to put them up, to bring holiday cheer into our home. I am really looking forward to Emma's excitement when she sees the tree lit up for the first time. This is going to be a lot of fun.


  1. I'm thankful for YOU guys! PS. I absolutely positively love those boots. I want a matching pair! Where did you say you got them?

  2. I got them at Baughman's, that western store on 1st street in town. You can find them online. Search for Ariat boots. I think the style is Sonora. :)
