just a little reminder...

 Jer. 31:3
"...Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love..."

"Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely.
He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God’s love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked."                Elder Uchtdorf

life is tough.
at times, i get lost.
it's nice to have a reminder that 
He loves me no matter what.

my professors are all pretty amazing. already chemistry has consumed my life, but i am rocking that class. for now at least..

i've almost completely organized my room. it's taking forever! i guess one would say i have a lot of stuff... i'll post pics soon to show how cute it is! (or will be very soon)

the husbands were missing! we wish ryan and scott could have joined us!

we spent one night at the cabin...

that was enough for us! our group can only survive no electricity, a non-working toilet, rain storms and mud for so long.. we're just not cut out for mountain living!
we had a fun time though :]
