Conference Weekend!

Wasn't conference good? I was listening to talk radio a little too much last Thursday and Friday and it really got me down. I couldn't wait until General Conference to get that boost I needed...and it succeeded. The talks were just excellent and were just what I needed to hear -- especially about gratitude - finding joy in our journey.....and then learning from our mistakes and doing better. I know we all hear different things - but these are the things that rang true with me. I can't wait to study them more next month.

We had the most perfect weather this weekend --- on Saturday it was cloudy all day with the temps in the high 70's...maybe low 80's. Almost chilly...hey, I said ALMOST. Anyway, it put me in the perfect baking mood -- so I rolled out a big batch of cinnamon rolls that my family almost entirely consumed at this hour. Conference and fresh cinnamon rolls -- is there a better combination? Today we had another gorgeous day -- beautiful enough to get a break from the kids once in a while since they would hang out in the backyard....because once conference ends at 3pm, it becomes a VERY LONG SUNDAY!

It is so great to hear from you! I have oftened wondered where you were and how your family is doing..you have really grown. I think about your sweet daughter Amanda and now I see you have more kids to add to your eternal family. Gosh, it's good to see you guys. Whenever I see an old grand am, I always say...that reminds me of the Hartmans!
