So much

Where to start? Haven't blogged in a while. Life has been crazy busy but a lot of fun. Here are a few highlights.
#1 - We are moving...again. I hate to move. I hate paying rent to other people. I hate asking people for help. However we are going to be in a nicer apartment, about the same size, and it has a garage. It is on the Avenues...again (in our old ward) and costs less than we are paying now. So even though it is highly disappointing to move, we are getting a great deal.
#2 - I did a wedding show at La Caille this weekend. Check out my Persimmon Floral Blog to read all about it.
#3 - The fourth of July was awesome. We celebrated "Still dependent day" by having a bbq at my Dad's house and then by visiting my high school (which is closing) and watching fireworks and seeing lots of great friends, then we went to Tom's cabin (on the fourth) to relax and hang out. It was great! We went on a hike to the Red Door Mine...which had a lot less Red Door than I was expecting. Apparently you used to be able to see the Red Door, but now it is all gated and restricted. Oh well, it was still fun.
#4 - My website is in the process of becoming awesome. Right now it is a mish-mash of 2 different websites. I will let you know when it is up and running again.
Today I am cleaning my house, feeding the missionaries, and figuring out my weekend. I hope you are all doing well and having fun! Here are some pictures.

Relay for Life

This last weekend (June 26 and 27) I had the great opportunity to serve at the Relay for Life in Murray. It was a great opportunity and so much fun to see how much good a few people can do. My team raised $1,180.00! It was fantastic. Thank you to everyone who donated. The whole event raised $30,000.00. It will go to fund cancer research and programs here in Utah. Thank you also to all of you who came and walked for my team. Candi came and walked around the track for 2 hours in the middle of the night! You are awesome. Izzy's cute family came and walked on Friday night and Saturday morning and they had a bake sale (raising $80.00). My mom came and facepainted and we raised a bit more money there. It was great. I got to make some flower arrangements for the Survivor's Reception and make a cool backdrop of the Hollywood mountains. I never got a final picture of it, but you can see it in the works below. Tom walked a lot and helped with setting up too. We got totally dumped on on Friday night, but it was followed by a beautiful double rainbow. People kept going too even during the rain. I am excited to be involved with it again next year.
