While in Utah last week I had some time to meet up with a few people that I love. Here is a quick iphone collage of how it played out.
This photo is with my best friend growing up. We were in the same schools, neighborhood and church and spent most of our middle school, high school and sophomore year of college together.
I love Tiffany and it was great to see her for even 15 minutes. She was such a support for me as youth and we had so many great times together.
I stopped and saw my Grandmother. This was the most difficult as she is 91 and dying . The first thing she said to me was “I am so tired of living.” It was quite emotional for me knowing that I would not see her again alive. I was glad I had an opportunity to stop by and say goodbye and thank her for being my grandmother.
On the agenda was Japanese food with my Dad at Temari restaurant in Ogden on 40th street. This is a little small 9 room seater with authentic food. I loved every single second of it.
We have been eating Japanese food together for over 20 years so this was a perfect reason to eat more.
I love my dad and I love spending time with him.
You might ask what was going on at home? Chase was celebrating his last couple of days of freedom before school really kicked in with this friends that he hangs out with. A great group of kids.
Also on the Utah agenda was seeing absolutely one of my favorite people in the world- Sheri.
We went to the Provo Temple together and out to lunch. What I love about her is the fact that it could be ages since I saw her last and it is so easy to pick up right where we left.
She lived in Bedford for 3 years and moved 6-7 years ago. I sure wish she still lived here as there is not a more amazing woman on earth. I adore her.
I loved just catching up with her and being around her. I aspire to be like her in everyday. She is an amazing wife and mother!
At the dorms, we said goodbye to Hillary and she left in the distance with these fun girls who came to Nicaragua with us! It was great seeing them and knowing that she was in good hands as we departed.
I loved spending time on this gorgeous campus and having a walk through my past. It is going to be a great semester for her.
The hardest thing was the fact that I had to head back to the dental chair for another 2 hours of work. The dentist is my sister in law and she is amazing but really knew how to do a number on my mouth. I was in pain for hours but all of my problems are solved. I am still sensitive this morning.
I spent the rest of the day spending time with my little brother. We hung out at his new pool and laughed and laughed.
You might be asking about my mom. This isn’t a great shot and she will be mad I posted it but she is out of commission now since she just had surgery on her foot for her arthritis. She is getting much better either but I always love seeing her.
I spent an evening with Brian’s parents too for dinner. I am so lucky to have such great inlaws. The trip was a success. I am happy to be home and doing my thing.
