Most of jordan and I's free time lately is spent working on Relay for Life! Our conversations at night are discussing what could be done better or the things we need to do.. We spend our date nights building things for better presentations and Saturdays spent doing everything but begging on our hands and knees, to try to get people to buy homemade crafts and goodies! Everything we have been working on culminates on July 12. A whole years worth of work! And then.. The next day.. It starts over! Ha.
It has been a good experience. I am passionate about it. Lets be real.. Cancer sucks! i don't want any of my kids or family or friends or my hubby to hear that they have cancer!
I am grateful to Jordan who's been volunteering with them since he was 16ish. If I am honest, it's really what brought us together for good and sealed the deal between the two of us in my mind.. Now, after 10-11 years, they've asked him to be the co-chair. Meaning in another year, he will be the Event Chair. In other words, he's kind of a big deal.. As if I haven't known that all along though right?! Duh!
Here are a few of our relay pics! And if you want to join in the fight against cancer, go to relayforlife.org and you can find the event closest to you :)

One year ago today, Jordan and I signed a THICK stack of papers and got a set of keys to our brand new house. I am so glad we did it. I love our house. I love our neighbors and I love our ward.
It's seen a lot of good times in the last year and it has changed a lot.

I have a few people in my life that I consider to be my hero's. I don't think I could choose one because certain people are my hero's for different reasons.. Recently I had a visit from one of mine. My sweet brother. Bryan. I get emotional just thinking about how much I care about him. He's one of those people that just gets people. He's the most down to earth person I know. He's real. And unfortunately, that is a rare quality to find. He's a peacemaker. The way he tells a joke at just the right time, turns a budding argument into a giggle-fest. His smile, is hands down, the best I've ever seen! He is hardcore and the biggest softy all at the same time. He's not afraid to tell me he loves me and give me a big hug that makes me feel like a million bucks. He is so book smart and street smart. He is who I would call if I was stuck on a math or chemistry problem and also the person I would choose to be with me on an island cause he'd know how to stay alive! And he's funny, like really, really funny. And humble, cause if he read this he'd probably want to delete it. But that's him, and I am one lucky little sister.
