This winter weather has really been getting to me lately, so this past weekend I decided to take a trip down to St. George to visit my sister and her cute family! Being among the red rocks that I'm obsessed with and people that I love so much was exactly what I needed. We played outside at the park, wrapped up in blankets and played the worm game, and ate all the bad food that fit in our stomachs. I never feel more at home than when I'm in St. George. There's no better place.

I've been thinking a lot lately about tender mercies. I don't know how else to put it, so I'll just say that life has been a little bit...weird...for me lately. And I found myself in the position where I really needed to start looking for those tender mercies in my life. But I have to tell you, when I started looking, they were everywhere! I think I had been inadvertently ignoring the many small good things happening for me and going on all around me. 

While I murmur about this stuff I've been calling my "quarter-life crisis," (haha, drama queen over heeeeree) 
I really can't complain. 
I love life. I love my family. I love my friends. 
When I say "I'm 'working'," it means I'm either taking videos or editing them, and that means I'm really lucky. 
Maybe there are many places (geographically + situationally speaking) that I'd rather be right now, 
but I do know that the future is bright, and the things I'm learning right now will take me far in life. 

Patience, young Padawan.
