It was a good day

Went to the farmers market today. Ive never been there. I loved it. I bought a box of apples for only $10.00. I thought that was a great deal - if it's not, I don't want to know about it - I like living in ignorance.

My mom bought a box of peaches. They were only $15.00 - same rule applies as before with the apples. I've never been a fan of fresh peaches - until today. The peaches you get from the grocery store are not fresh. I thought I would try one with some cottage cheese. I. Love. Cottage. Cheese. I was dreading peeling it. It was like peeling a banana. Who needs a man when you've got peaches like these? Sprinkle with a little bit of sugar... YUMMY!


This is the box after we made 3 pies. My mom made the crust and I peeled and chopped the peaches. I had so much fun in the kitchen with her today. I think we made a great team, AND we had 3 really pretty pies to show for it. Go team Heumann!

We then went to the women's broadcast. It was really good - and everything I needed to hear! I now have a renewed testimony and faith in not only the gospel but in myself. I have a deep love for the scriptures and for this gospel. I know that this church is led by a living prophet and know that Thomas S. Monson has been chosen by the Lord to fulfill this calling. I’m grateful for the love that the Savior has for all of us, and have felt that love as he has helped to heal my broken heart. There were many times I wanted to give up. But when those days would come I would hear my sweet little boy come to me and ask if we can cuddle and talk about caterpillars and butterflies – or having my daughter sit on my lap and tell me how wonderful I smell. It is in those moments that the spirit whispers to your heart and tells you that not only is this the reason we are here, but that it is all worth it. I love the Temple and am grateful for the blessings I can and have received from the covenants I have made there. I'm grateful that my children and my family can be mine for eternity.

It was a good day!

By the way, I just read your blog and I need to say two things; 1) You are freaking hilarious! You always were and I am happy that you have not lost it. 2) You are beautiful. Don't worry about what other people think. If you focus on you, and improving those things that will make YOU happy, all will be well.

The pies look delicious! Fresh Utah peaches are awesome, my Grandad had a peach tree in his back yard. YUM!
The braodcast was AWESOME! Just what I needed to hear as well. My favorite was Elder Uchdorf and it doesnt hurt that he's not bad to look at (is that wrong?)
