so I realized that absence really makes the heart grow fonder. Q is at work, I'm at home, and my heart is sad that he's not here. Is that "high school" enough for you? I literally can't get enough of him. When he's here, I want to be near him ALL the time, and when he's gone, I can't think about much except how I love him. Especially now that we've been sealed in the Temple, thinking about being with him forEVER makes my hear skip a beat. :) He is so kind and thoughtful, I really don't think there's anyone like him. I KNOW there's no one better than him, that's for sure. We recently took a road trip to Utah and I loved being able to spend every moment with him! Are you tired of me talking about the love of my life yet? ha ha, well when you've got the best, it's hard not to gloat.

so I just wanted to post this quick little blurb about this evening's happenings. My shift at work was supposed to be from 4pm-8pm. I was mostly just organizing the shelves because of inventory coming up. I ended up helping only one person. He was a teen looking for some narcotics. He told me that he had a gun in his back pocket and that he needed the drugs. We are trained to give them what they ask for because it's not worth making them upset and causing problems. I went to our safe to get the meds, and grabbed a note pad to write "boy has gun" on it to show my boss (who was working at the time). He ended up giving the guy what he had asked for, the guy left, the cops were called, and that was kind of the end of it. I thought I'd cry because of the intensity of the situation, but I just needed to take a moment to myself to calm down. I was shaking a bit, but I was definitly feeling better when I left the store than I am now. I'm fine, but I can't sleep. It wasn't that bad of a situation, but who can know how they'd react in a situation like that? I think the best we can do is just prepare the best we can, and in my opinion, make sure to have the guidance of the Spirit and protection from Heavenly Father. I'm grateful that it wasn't worse than it was, and am glad for people around me who are quick to think on their feet. Moments like this help me to be more grateful for all that I have.
long time a-comin'......
So, here's some pictures from when we were sealed. I actually had bought a new dress, but apparently wanted to cover it up with my purple coat. :S oh well, it apparently didn't matter at the time!
just outside the Temple..... yeah, it was a pretty happy day. :)
sure love this guy!
think he loves me too.... :)
Again, thanks for all your well wishes and prayers for us. We wouldn't be here without such wonderful friends and family!
