a very thankful heart

thanksgiving weekend is over & i am finally taking a second to tell you all how thankful i am for this boy.  it was his birthday this weekend too, which i dont even find ironic because i think everyone that knows him is thankful for him, so its fitting ;) i had no idea what an impact he would have on my life 4 years ago, (yes 4. i was notified on Facebook it was our 4 year friendiversary yesterday ;) ) we had quite the relationship at first, we didn't talk too much. but yet, told each other every detail of our lives when we did. as if it was natural to cleave to one another. fast forward 4 years, we've both been on LDS missions, written our feelings through letters for 2 years, and at last met again, and i instantly knew, that he would be mine forever. i'm very thankful for this handsome boy. not every man can put up with a crazy woman like me. but i'm forever thankful he does! hope your thanksgiving was one you will always remember! xo


mitchell has found a new hobby, and i just sit and watch and maybe admire how cute he is while golfing. i thought a golf bag would be the PERFECT gift that would get muuuuch use!!! i teamed up with Vessel Golf Bags to give it to him! he LOVED it. and it made golfing, and his special day SO much fun!! 

two things:

hello! been a minute ;) i have been the worst at blogging this year. forrrrrgive me! BUT i had to update you a bit & tell you about something I've been loving.
first, lifes taken me in every direction. from finding a balance in myself, to really pursuing my passions. i graduate hair school in just ONE month and in that time i have so much to prepare my mind for. starting january i will:
be moving
starting my job(s)
finding a house 
paying more BILLS 
and on top of that........ 


so pls! from a sister to you, give me all your advice. just in general. change is good, i know that. i love it. but for some reason this change coming up has got all my nerves in a WAD. 

on another note, THIS WATCH! it has become my favorite and surprisingly matches everything in my closet. its a win win. here is the link for their awesome watches for you and yours! 

hope your spirits are up this fine monday! 
xo, ayns
