Happiness in Simplicity

Oh what a busy and boring week its been. My favorite days were the days I was doing anything that reminded me of Preston. Example #1: Going to the Missionary Girlfriend party :) All those girls instantly became friends  :) We went to in-n-out and then
headed over to the mall and then ended with
Tangled :) It was a good night because I got to
talk about Preston non stop :) Talking about him
makes me super super happy :)
Example #2: Sunday. Sundays are the very best day of the week. I will tell you why. On Sundays you get to spend the day with family. You also get to go to church and feel that spiritual high. Most importantly, you don't have time to sit in your room alone and think about your missionary (at least I don't) This past Sunday was amazing. Me and my 3 sisters decided to go on a picnic to one my favorite places. It's this baseball park in American Fork. It's honestly one of my most favorite places in the world. Weird right? There's something so peaceful and I feel such serenity when I'm there. Being there around sunset is the most beautiful sight. Me and Preston played softball there and it's just a park full of memories :) After the park we walked around the Mount Timpanogos Temple. I love being around the temple whenever I can. We also walked around the Amphitheatre in AF. Sometimes you just need to go on a drive and visit those special places :)
At the park
I sent this picture to him :)
These rocks were in the shape of a heart :) I sent him this one too

One more day and we'll be at 5 weeks. As much as I'm waiting for so much to happen, I'm so excited for what's going to be happening in the somewhat near future :) I've learned if I get excited for little things that happen in the near future, it makes me feel better than if I'm constantly just waiting for 2 years to end. I really like the quote that says, 
"Happiness is not found at the end of the road, it is experienced along the way. So take not for granted each moment of your life and you will find a reason to be happy each day"

I'm trying to work on this everyday. <3
