Those Magic Moments

This was a HARD year. I don't know if I've ever cried so much, in my life. But among all of that, there were magic moments. Moments that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Here's a look back on those moments. (in no particular order)

One of my last nights in Southern Utah, my two Southern Utah BFF's and I got together to make Galaxy Shirts. I love these girls and loved this night.
I haven't posted about this one yet, but the other day Kelsey (photo above) and I went on a snow hiking adventure. It was a great day and the post will be coming soon.
I am so lucky that Sarah moved to Southern Utah. This was our first adventure together, such a great day.
I love Hiking and so did my roommate, Katie. We went on a bunch of hiking adventures, together. I loved every minute of every hike.
Sarah and I were able to witness the Annular Eclipse, that is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and best of all, we lived in the PRIME viewing location! Never have I been so lucky.
Each day I spent playing with my friend Allison's goats was a blast!
This year I was able to meet SO many bloggers! I love each memory and each blogger.

For my birthday, we attended Aladdin at Tuachan Amphitheater  It was such a fun day, one of my fondest memories.
Another one of my fondest memories was the weekend I spent in Cedar City with my younger sister.
School definitely had it's positives and negatives, but overall, I am so glad I went. I made great friends and was able to find my career.
Hiking Angels Landing in Zions National Park was amazing! One of my all time favorite hikes. Honestly, that entire day was magic.
My entire trip to Oregon goes on this list. When things are quiet, or I'd rather be somewhere else, my mind often wanders back there.
I love sister dates, and being able to attend the Utah Opera with my sister was definitely one of the year's hi lights.
I loved the entire week that I spent reunited with my family this Summer. It had been a year since I'd seen my sister and her family; and myself, my younger sister, and my parents all lived in different places for the majority of the year. Being able to be with them and be at our cabin was magic.
Being on TV was amazing! I knew I'd love it, and it will be opening a bunch of doors! I haven't told you yet, but you'll see.
When I look back over this year and think of my favorite moments, the ones that warm my heart and bring tears to my eyes, this is one of them. The moment I hugged my nieces and nephew after being apart for a year. They are my best friends.
I'd love to read about your favorite moments of the year! Let me know if you post about them!

Life can be hard--my family has had a rough year as well--but I love that you are choosing to look at the positive things that happened instead! On Christmas, my family went around and said our favorite things that happened in the past year, and it was such a great eye-opener into how blessed we are, even when things aren't perfect. Thanks for sharing your year with us. xo!
