ROAD TRIP!!! :)
My sweet fiance and I went back up to visit the Burg this weekend! It was a short little road trip but it made me very happy. I love my sweetheart; he is just wonderful. When we started the drive back, he asked me if I had a good time. I smiled and told him that I really did. He then told me that he was so glad I had a good time, because he brought me back to see me happy. He is selfless. I know he loves me when he does things like this. I thought I was kind of helping him since he wanted to get some shots of our favorite places for our wedding video (which he is making himself! How cool is that?! I'm super excited!). But, in all reality, he wanted me to be happy-to find some joy and something to look forward to.
Well, this weekend was a dream! I saw Johannes Brahm's Requiem performed IN GERMAN for the first time in the history of the city of Rexburg. I must say, they did wonderfully! I'm so proud of all my dear friends and former professors that put together this ensemble. I was truly touched by the verses Brahm's chose about the fall, repentance, atonement, and resurrection. I truly felt the spirit of the message it presented.
And then there was the end of the show: I WAS MAULED!!! I FELT LIKE A ROCK STAR! So many hugs, congratulations, hello's, good-bye's... It was just wonderful! I love those people--my people--the Snow-dwellers that became my dearest and best friends.
After that, I visited my old roommates and apartment. It was wonderful, yet odd. It didn't feel like home like it used to. I'm moving further and further away from the thought of going back to BYU-I. I loved it there with all of my heart, but there is so much more for me to do and learn as a wife and a mother.
Then, it was time with my BESTIE FRIEND!!! Oh, how I missed Amy! We stayed up until 3 am talking and laughing and trying desperately to catch up and continued to do so after we woke up the next day. It was so hard leaving, I did everything I could to delay just a little longer. But finally, my sweet Bryan looked at me at about 4 pm and told me it was time to go. I hugged Amy twice. I'm going to miss her, but it won't be long until I see her again.
This weekend was exactly what I needed. I love my sweet fiance. He is my other half.
