Happy Graduation, Ash!

Tonight my niece is graduating from Elementary School!!!!! It's so hard to believe that she is going to be in middle school this coming fall. She is such a smart girl, a great friend to everyone, and is so good at every sport possible. She is such a crack up to be around, and I absolutely adore her!

Caution: Calm Winds

For the past month we have had crazy winds here in Rexburg. We are currently in the middle of a wind storm that is having 40 mph gusts. Imagine working the Drive Thru at G's Dairy during one of those gusts of wind! Not good... flying money, scoops all over the driveway.. lost work hats. haha its pretty crazy. I have the Weather Channel application for my phone, and every hour or so it beeps to tell me we are under a severe wind advisery. I wish I could get notices when it is finally calm! They sure would be a lot less beeping coming from my phone! The crazy wind is normal now, and I get excited for calm days!!

Oh and.. we live right next to a construction site that has tons of dirt, so during these wind storms my car looks like it went off roading or something fun!!! Little do people know it was just sitting in the parking lot.

My birthday was FABULOUS! Jeff surprised me with this way cute Dooney and Bourke purse! I was so surprised. He knew I wanted a new purse but I didnt think he'd pick one out and buy it!! Thanks Jeff!
We went to Idaho Falls on my birthday and spent the majority of my birthday money from family! We also ate a Johnny Carino's which is always amazing!!! and even better, I got the day off of work!! It was lots of fun to celebrate my birthday with Hubs. He made me feel like a princess, and I was most definitly spoiled!

Thanks mom for feeling the need to get preggos with me (and If I was an accident just dont tell me!!) haha. Thanks to my parents for raising me to be pretty fab, I must say. It was a great birthday and I cant wait till Jeff's birthday to spoil him back.

Depression is the number one disease at BYU-Idaho.

Why is that?

Is it because we are constantly reminded that we need to be better?

The intense pushing and pushing to be married?

The lack of employment opportunities in Rexburg?

The track system which means our close friends might move every semester?

The lack of individuality for fear of being judged?

"The Savior was “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: … Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: … and with his stripes we are healed” (Isa. 53:3–5). No matter how you get help, ultimate healing will always come from the Savior. He will ease your burdens. His gospel is a gospel of peace and hope. Never doubt that He wants you to be happy"
-Shanna Ghaznavi.

If your struggling with depression your not alone. It is OKAY to go get on medications. I have been criticized over and over for being on medication for my anxiety and depression. But Heavenly Father put doctors and therapists on the earth for a reason. Some might be having the blues, but others might simply have a chemical imbalance in their body that needs to be evened out. You can get through it, but not alone. Not without Christ and fully understanding his atonement.

Because of that I have overcome so much. I have been able to get on with my life, without being ashamed that I have struggled with this terrible disease.

I am happy.
