Bonjour & Welcome

A year I never expected

I can hardly believe it has been a year since returning home from my mission. Technically it is tomorrow the 29th but today a year ago I said my testimony for the last time as a full time missionary.

A year ago on Christmas I officially met my husband Cody. He apparently saw something in me that when I got home to my family in Georgia he messaged me on Facebook and we started to talk. :)

I never saw what has happened in that year coming. I have done a lot of things in one year that have been challenging but have made me grow as a better person and I wouldn't change them.

My mother says I didn't just change my life I leaped and bounded into it. And I did and have no regrets :) I couldn't have imagined my life any better.

I loved my mission and I do occasionally find myself missing aspects of it but I am happy to be living in what used to be my mission a place I fell in love with too.

I am so grateful that the Lord inspired me to go on a mission. If I hadn't I wouldn't have met the awesome people I did. Everyone I taught in someway taught me in another. It is weird to think if I hadn't gone I wouldn't have met my husband! lol So I'm glad when the time came that we did we were ready for each other.
