As y'all know I went home this weekend for Andrew's homecoming and to see my family ;)
It was the best weekend ever!! I got to see Andrew within an hour of getting off the plane ;) Got the best hug from him too ;) Went to a movie and dinner with him and his family that night. Next night went out to dinner again with his family, after helping paint some AYT sets of course ;) Saturday we had our first date (again) and saw Trev's play "All Shook Up". Very cute show I loved it!
Then yesterday Andrew gave his homecoming talk. That boy can speak! Dang! Sitting there listening to him showed me how much he's changed and stronger he's become in the Gospel. Now, granted he's still the crazy Andrew I know and love, but there's a whole different side to him now that just amazes me beyond everything.
After his homecoming talk, he and I went to another elder's homecoming. Then a potluck at his house with his family, then dinner with mine (which he and I made so my mom didn't have to stress about it) and then he helped give my grandma a blessing after she had fallen yesterday morning.
Let me say this too: Knowing that Andrew was worthy to participate in the blessing was huge (not that he wouldn't've been, cuz that wouldn't happen) It was awesome to see my grandpa, my dad, my brother, and my missionary all standing in a circle with their hands on her head giving a blessing. The power of the Priesthood is amazing and the Spirit was definitely in that room last night.
Now, I'm sure some are wondering what's next for us? Well, I'm going back to finish my College Program at Disneyland, Andrew's staying here getting a job (if anyone knows of ANYWHERE please let me know) and getting ready for school/marching band. And we're gonna just go from there. But yes, we are together and happy ;)
I'm so grateful for him and his shining example to me. Over these 2 years it's been an anazing thing having a missionary out and I've seen the blessings in my life. I've learned patience, courage, love, as well as learning how to deal with difficult situations. I couldn't be more happy that he's home now ;)
I'm sad to be going back to Cali but it's only 6 weeks (Andrew said "just one transfer" hahaha) and then I'll be back here with all my family and most of my friends.
Just one more thing to say:
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
