Beautiful Monday

Today has been a great day. Nothing particularly different or exciting happened, but I just had a new outlook on life. Yesterday Greg and I were able to go to a fireside that Jenny Phillips put on, if you don't know, she is a singer and song writer. It was amazing!! I felt the spirit so strongly and I think it totally changed... or I should say ... helped me remember why I am here. The theme of the night was Remember the Journey. The quote that stood out to me the most was
" The joy is in the journey, the joy is in becoming like him"
We all or should I say I ...get so distracted in having cute clothes, trying to be great at everything, caring what other people think of me, blogging :) but when it comes down to it all we need to be doing and worrying about is working to become more like our Savior and being able to return home. As I have been able to refocus, I feel so much happier.  
As a result I had a beautiful Monday. I had dinner ready for my hungry husband when he came home from work and made this delicious cinnamon bread from mrs. harding cooks website. (click for recipe)
while listening to Mindy Gledhill's new song on repeat (my fav at the moment). I felt inspired, uplifted and so happy. I wish I always felt like this.

Wow girl, homemade bread??? You have far surpassed my domestic abilties girl! I'm impressed! I know exactly what you mean- life gets away from me often with so many silly worries and things that consume my time. Thanks for the sweet reminder of whats important :) Love you!
