A Day for Celebration!

Today is such a great day, I just have to blog about it! I know it is so dumb, but people don't really read blogs right? So I am just writing how I feel right now and if certain people read it...I am sorry! I have not been as busy, so I have had extra time to do what I want and it has been fabulous. So today I have a ton of things that I want to get done, I probably won't get most of them done, but I am going to try!

I had institute today and it was so great, Brother Larsen knows how to really bring the spirit in. After institute I needed to run a few errands and then I planned to lock myself in my house and get everything done. Yesterday I went and picked beans at my grandpas and there were sooo many, so I decided that I would be able to can them. I was going to do it by myself, I told my grandma this and she just seemed so worried that I wouldn't be able to do it by myself. I could tell she wanted me to have her help me. I love my grandma! Although I wanted to get other things done while I was canning, it will be fun to be with my grandma, I love learning from my grandma!

Other things that I have to do, I just bought some paint to refinish some furniture for the bridal fair, I am way excited to see how they turn out. I also need to make some banana bread and work on a quilt that I started the other night. We had our first meeting for Quilt Guild on Tuesday and I am excited to get back into quilting. I know I am such a nerd, but I love being domestic! I love the satisfaction that comes after you have finished a project, I really do thrive on this!

All these things are great, but the real reason for my day of celebration is having victory! I wanted to put this at the end of the post and maybe not as many people would read it! Haha! As I was driving home from institute, I drove past the guy that I dated this last winter, so I stopped and chatted with him for a bit. Let me just give a little background...I was in love with this guy and I thought that I had found the one. He told me that it was mutual and I trusted him. He broke things off 8 months ago today (I know I am crazy, but girls keep track of things like that!), he broke my heart, he ended things without much explanation and no notice. It has not been the easiest since then, I haven't fully healed until today. During the summer I went on a lot of dates, I even kind of started to date someone, but I ruined it because I was so scared of dating because of what happened with this other guy. I have not let myself really fall for someone, because I lost my trust in men. I saw this guy a couple of weeks ago at church, he had just came back from the summer. After I went home I had a break down and I wished that I was with him still, I didn't even talk to him, but the ache came back. I was so mad! I thought I was over it. But today as I drove away from him, I had no feelings towards him, I even started to cry with joy that I no longer was being effected by him. I was so grateful! It was kind of a weird feeling, I was filled with the spirit and I can now fully let go and move on with my life. I kept crying while I drove home because I was so happy! I passed Temptation Cupcakes and decided that I needed to celebrate, so I treated myself with an apricot cupcake! It was delicious!

Life is so great! I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for all that he has given me. I am truly blessed! I am so excited to spend time and increase my talents today, I know that sounds dumb, but it truly brings me joy!


  1. Jess, I am so happy for you that you were able to have that victory today! And what better way to celebrate than with a cupcake? Just so you know, I'm pretty sure that at one point or another, we have all lost our faith in men, usually because of one that we were deeply in love with. But trust me, the true one will come along and restore all faith you ever lost and you will see how awesome it really is. I promise. We love you and I love seeing your projects. You are seriously awesome at them. Make sure to take pics and post them. Miss you!

  2. What a fun day! GOod Luck!1 It was good to see you in the temple the other day! ; )

  3. Oh Jess, I'm so glad for your reasons to celebrate. I was just barely wondering how things were with that situation. We really need to get together...the problem is I hate school thanks to all my dumb classes that require me to read difficult essays and write papers and take up all my time. I forgot how! Anyway, we should all get together and carve pumpkins or something.
    Love ya!
