Belated....But Sincere

For Ellie
oh well, I like getting up with
the sun
and your bright-glowing-beautiful
madness
which I have come to miss when
silence
finds its way into our door after 9
you were the last bloom
before autumn arrives
the first snowflake in December
and sweet rain falling in
summer
I have not yet discovered a smile
quite like yours
it seems to put hope into
places where hope does not belong
For once and forever
(from now on)
there's good news every morning

This is for you, Liz (New Year's Eve)

Having large muscles requires scowling at all times.

The threesome strikes again!

When nobody's stopping you, just do it! Haha...

Laughing, always laughing

Shorter than the rest...

Nobody else would dance with us. Wonder why?

Single enough for the singles ward!

So...you know that movie where singles wards are just outright mocked? Well I have news: they aren't really like that! I mean yeah, some of them are solely for getting hitched, but the one I have recently begun to attend is just a place to make friends. And boy is that something I need right now! I was pretty afraid to go to a singles ward when I first moved back for the winter, so I stayed away from it for a few weeks. Then finally I got some guts and dived headfirst. I'm usually good with names, but every time I go to church now I forget who people are and if I've met them already. That's how many times I have introduced myself! What the junk?! When I told my bishop that I'd be staying until April, he said, "Right on!" and slapped me five. I was also called to the activities committee on my second sunday. Wahoodles! The truth is, the church is the same wherever you go. The only difference is the people--or should I say, the new friends you make.
