It's finally August 25th!! You know what that means? I leave for China tonight!!!
I will hopefully still be able to blog all the time. If you would like to follow all the experiences and adventures I embark on while there, you can follow my China blog:
But no worries, I'll still write on this blog :) just not as much... :) 
As far as me and my mish go, we are doing wonderful and still more in love than ever!
I highly recommend living your own life and experiencing different things while your missionary is gone. I know this experience is going to be one of the most amazing experiences of my whole life. 
I'm just so excited and wanna leave now! Just 5 more hours til I leave for the airport!!! :) 
We fly to California, then Korea, then Hong Kong and then finally China!
Wish me luck!!

My Comfort Songs from Feb 2011

I heard all 3 of these songs either today or yesterday. They are the 3 songs that helped get me through when Preston first left in February. Really the only song I could listen to that didn't make me cry was this one:
Here Comes The Sun
Next was this one. Now this one made me cry. A lot.
And this last song is one that I listened to a lot a couple weeks into his mission. When I was finally coming out of that really depressed stage. Certain lyrics fit exactly how I was feeling. It made me cry, yes. But it was one of those songs that even though it makes you sad, it makes you happy.
Today My Life Begins

Am I really posting this already? Has he really been gone for 181 days? I'm proud to say that I have made it through the first 6 months of Preston's mission :) that calculates to 1/4 of his mission. Done. Gone forever :) Could I be any more happy? No :) (technically his 6 months mark was August 9th but I have been without internet for 2 days)
These 6 months have been some of the hardest months of my life - hands down. But they have also been some of the best. I have met some of the most amazing girls and created friendships that I know will last a very long time. I've grown so much and I'm learning more every day. I've learned to appreciate the little things that I never did before. Because really, the little things in life matter the most. But most importantly, I've never been more in love with Preston :) waiting isn't so hard anymore. It's still hard... But call me crazy - I actually enjoy it. We are both learning so much about ourselves during these two years. It's amazing to see both of us going through this together. 
I wouldn't be posting this right now if it wasn't for all the wonderful MG's. I don't know if I'd be this happy during this waiting process without them. So girls, thank you :) 
Also, I am happy to say that I haven't gone on any dates yet since Preston left. Some girls date, some girls don't. I always just said that I'd do what feels right. But so far, not dating has been right :) It's made my life so much easier. 
I'd like to end with saying that Preston has been the most amazing missionary. He is working SO hard everyday but he still makes time to write me every single week. He still makes time to make me videos and take pictures. He is putting in the extra effort to serve the Lord but also love me at the same time. And I love him so much for it :) 
I just can't wait for the next 6 months! I go to China in 15 days and I couldn't be more excited for the future :) 
p.s. This is what 6 months down looks like :)
I'm not worried that my feelings will change :) I love what one of my new favorite songs by Keith Urban says:
"But if anyone can make it, I'm betting on me and you
Just keep on moving in to me
I know you're going to see
The best is yet to come

Don’t fear it now; we're going all the way
Where the sun is shining on a brand new day
It's a long way down, and it's a leap of faith
But I’m never giving up, 'cause I know we got a once in a lifetime love"
