I've noticed a lot lately that it is easy to focus on the things that we don't have in our lives. We can list them so easily, and moan and groan about them. But what we fail to realize is that it's not about what we don't have,it's those hardships that make us appreciate what we do have. For instance....The blizzard that is going to hit provo tonight, not so fun. How thankful am I to have a warm apartment and blankets to cozy up in. I'm also thankful for:
My family, how close we are, and that we are all healthy.
The gospel, how it has shaped me into who I am today.
Good friends, those I can lean on, and depend on.
My experience in Utah, learning to be on my own.
Temples, baptisms for the dead.
Christian Cade Larson, the huge example he is in my life.
Hair school, that I am able to do something I love as a profession.
The list could obviously go on for days. I hope this post can make whoever is reading realize what they too are thankful for even at times we gloom on trials or things what we don't have! Happy Holidays.

I'm finally homesick. I miss my momma my pops, I miss my sisters, I miss my friends, Qt, the smell of my house! I miss going to my sister Natalie's house just to hang out. I miss knowing where I am at all times. I miss drive by's past Christian's house. I miss working out at mountain side, diet coke runs with my sister Rachel. But most of all I miss my nephews and adorable niece. I miss dance parties with Myles, Nannying Cash, and catching up on Noah and Lincoln's Life! I miss holding baby Mia any chance I got! I can't wait to visit home in 6 days especially for Thanksgiving, because I'm truly thankful for it all!
