The Sweet Smell of Freedom

Well, I first want to thank all our troops who are fighting and/or have fought to keep the freedom we as Americans hold so dearly. We sang "My Country Tis of Thee" today at church and it really got me thinking about how I take my freedom for granted. Not only do I have the right to pray in public, but I have the right to marry the man of my dreams, work, vote and be happy all while feeling no sense of immediate threat - all while our country is fighting one of the longest, toughest wards in history. We are all truly blessed.

This weekend was great! We went to a Rough Riders baseball game on Thursday night with Josh's sister and brother-in-law. Although the Riders lost, we had a blast and its always nice to see my future-sister-in-law! Friday was spent drinking margaritas and laying by the pool. Josh got pretty burned, but I think I just added to the already beautiful tan I have. ;)

As we wind down to the wedding, our anxiety and stress levels are rising (I should probably just say me...) - we're taking care of last-minute preparations and trying to stay cool. I woke up this morning with a HUGE pimple and got really upset. Leave it up to me to breakout the week before my wedding!

Anyways, things are going great here. I'm so happy that we got to spend this 3-day weekend together, relaxing and living the good life. I can't wait to spend every 3-day weekend for the rest of my life with Josh!
