HOORAY!!!! I FINALLY did it! I designed my own blog!!! I first started reading blogs when my relatives and other family friends started posting about their lives and their kids. Apparently its the "cool thing to do" when you get married ( yes, YIKES, I have married friends!). I wasn't planning on getting a blog until I noticed everyone's cute designs. I have a love for designing things on my computer. I set out to learn how to design a blog layout. Well after about a week of tweeking and fiddeling... I DID IT! This is my blog design and I am well on my way to designing more blog layouts and headers. If any of you want me to design one for you... just let me know! I have a BRAND new hobby now and I am in LOVE :)

I have a slight obsession with quotes :)

"To recognize the hand of the Lord in your life and to accept Hs will without complaint is a beginning...It will free you from the dead ends of your own reasoning." -- Richard G. Scott

"Our task is to become our best selves. One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final." --Thomas S. Monson

"Faith is not only a feeling, it is a decision. We must choose faith." -- Neil L. Anderson

"Both abundance and lack of abundance coexist in our lives. It is our choise which secret garden we will tend." -- Thomas S. Monson

"The way we react to adversity will be a meauser of our ultimate success... Adversity, if handled properly, can be a blessing in our lives. We can learn to love it." -- Jospeh B. Worthlin

" God never leaves us alone unaided, never, as long as time shall last. Even if we are the only person on earth. Even when our distress is of our own making, God is watching. He is sending angels both mortal and immortal." -- Jeffrey R. Holland

"The most beautiful flower blooms in adversity" -- from Disney's Mulan

"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." --Ralph Waldo Emerson

"“People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.”--Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.” --C. S. Lewis

“We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.” – C.S. Lewis

“I believe in God like I believe in the sun, not because I can see it, but because of it all things are seen.” – C.S. Lewis

"If there is ever a tomorrow when we are not together, there is something that you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think, but the most important thing is, even if we are apart, I'll always be with you." -- Winnie the Pooh

"It's never too late to become what you are meant to be" --George Eliot"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." --Ralph Waldo Emmerson

"No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means- the only complete realist"--- C.S. Lewis.

"It's never too late to become what you are meant to be" --George Eliot

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." --Ralph Waldo Emmerson
