Christopher David Mann found out today that he was accepted into the graphic design program at BYU!!! He also got into the art program (just to really gloat). He is a phenomenon to behold. I couldn't be more proud. So this offically means will be in provo for at least 2 years, and then when he makes it into the BFA program (which I have full faith that he will) we will be here another 2 years. I have decided to be really excited about that. :)
I do not like utah. Well that's a lie, I do not like snow. Utah minus snow would be fabulous! Kylah don't hate me- I know you crave snow but you don't drive yet... you will know what i mean in a few years. I get stuck in ditches, EVERYONE seems to be in accidents... its just very nerve racking. BUT if I get snow tires and improve my snow driving experience I can grow to love this horrible form of precipitation.... because truly it IS beautiful. So I will no longer let this hold me back from being excited.
This are probably the last 4 years I will be able to visit my family easily. I will be who knows where in the world just after chris graduates so chris and I are taking advantage of this time and visiting family a lot. Also, I LOVE being in a student married ward. I LOVE our bishop. I LOVE teaching sunday school with my husband. I LOVE summers in utah and going hiking. I LOVE my tiny apartment. I LOVE living on a budget... chris and I work together for everything and don't take anything for granted. I LOVE our newly started family and having VERY dorky family home evenings together... he prays i lead the song, he gives the thought, i give the lesson, he prays, i make treats... if we had like 6 kids we wouldn't feel so silly. But you have to start sometime right? I LOVE coming home from a job that I LOVE to clean up the apartment and prepare dinner before I leave to get Chris from school. I LOVE reading scriptures and eating ice cream every night.... one of those is a good habit right? close enough?
All right just one last bit of news/boasting....
Chris got a substantial raise at work as well. HOW COOL IS MY HUSBAND?! He is such a hard worker and I love him so much. And I was recently made head receptionist at my job as well! Good news all around. Life is beautiful in every way. We are spoiled. Being married is a great blessing but being married to the perfect person for you is something indescribable.
