1. LOVE. We just had our celebration of love weekend- celebrated TJ's birthday, Jake's birthday and Valentines Day. I'm so thankful for all the love that surrounds me. I have a kind husband and sweet kiddos, plus extended family and good friends. I'm so blessed.

2. Speaking of TJ- the I love to hear this kid's thoughts. Lately he's been telling us about dreams and things. Jake and him got on the subject of what he wants to be when he grows up the other day and he said, "Maybe a dad.... or a Paw Patrol" (Paw Patrol is his favorite cartoon right now). Jake asked, "What does a Paw Patrol do?" and TJ responded, "Uh.... SAVES THE DAY!"

3. Pioneers. Jake and I have been asked to be Ma and Pa for a ward youth trek this summer. In gearing up we're reading "The Price We Paid" and had to select some pioneer names to trek for (We are choosing James and Mary Ann Mellor). Just starting to get into it, but the stories of the sacrifice and faith of these early saints are very faith promoting.
