Billy, of course!

I LOVE Billy, and I sure do love being married to him!

Here is a poem I wrote for and about him. You can click on it to make it bigger so you can actually read it if you want.

It is fun learning how to be married, and I wouldn't love it any other way but with Billy. Ebillyence!

I can't begin to tell you how precious my time at the Grounds Office has been.

Today I realized two things:
1. I only have two months left there. What-a!? I have been spending 4-8 hours of every weekday of the last 3 years of my life in the secret corner of campus. How can it be coming to a close?

2. I'm going to regret never having taken my own picture of the outside of the Grounds Office.

I LOVE electronic games.

From the oldest

to the most obscure

to the longest addiction and absolute domination of the whole game even levels no one else knew about

to word games like this which I absolutely love (thank you, Char)

to the most recent, which Billy and I can not stop playing.

It's a nimble fingers passion, what can I say?

I LOVE keyboard shortcuts!

Three years in an office has taught me to be very efficient on my keyboard. Because I love them so much, here is a list of a few of my favorites.

Ctrl + c copy
ctrl + x cut
Ctrl + v paste
Ctrl + b bold
Ctrl + i italics
Ctrl + u underline
Ctrl + p print
Ctrl + z  undo
Ctrl + e center 
Ctrl + l left justify
Ctrl + r right justify
Shift + Tab Go backwards one
Shift + arrow highlight text
Shift + [ font size increase
Shift + ]  font size decrease
Shift + F3 Switch between lowercase, title case, uppercase
You may already know these, but that also means you know how much you love them!

Also, as a side note, I wish I could do a whole day on how much I LOVE excel! I'm not as good as maybe LaDon or other accountants, but I'm pretty good. I love excel.

Day TEN!

I LOVE my calling!

I'm the RS secretary. Every week I send out an email, prepare a conducting sheet and make a bulletin for everyone to have during RS (hymn lyrics conveniently on the back in case you don't have a hymn book becuase we never do).

It's right up my alley! And I get to know lots of people and work with a champ presidency and just LOVE!

Yes, this is a past love. But I LOVED having roommates that were so good to me. I can't remember the last time I was with Dad where he didn't rave about how grateful he was that I had such good roommates and what a difference it made in my college experience.

I couldn't agree more. From the very first--Elise, Rach and Chels (with whom I am still bosom friends) to the very last, randomest, strangest, kindest, exemplariest, maturest, immaturest and everything in between, I've about seen it all. I had 26 roommates in my single life at BYU and I have literal pages full of the adventures I had with all of them.

I'm missing picutres of some, but what great adventures! I LOVED having roommates and LOVE the friendships I still have with so many of them!

Day SEVEN, EIGHT and an Apology!

I've been a little sick, but here is day seven of love:

We LOVE our neighbors. 
They just moved in in January and they have already served us more than any neighbors have ever served me.

Meet Joel and Emily:

Before we had even met them, they had shoveled our driveway and our walks. And now they're letting us share internet. And they are so unassuming and kind. 

These aren't very good pictures, but they are such great neighbors! We love them so much.

And here's day eight:

I LOVE the mountains!
Pikes Peak above all...

But I have grown rather fond of the Utah mountains as well!

I LOVE the places I've lived and their oh, so familiar views.
