Farewell. Check!

Last Sunday was my farewell. I had family come all the way from Boise, friends from Logan all the way down to Alpine, and even one of my mother's old college friends flew in from Arizona. I was grateful to have so many people that I love travel in from all over the place just to come support me in my mission calling.

This was the day that I finally 'fessed up to my parents (well, actually everyone) that I had already read my call before they got to my apartment in Logan. ADD, sorry. So the video that everyone watched online was kind of fake. But not totally fake! Because I definitely was still in shock. I may have gone a little overboard with the whole melting onto the ground, but nobody suspected a thing. Should've been an actress.

After sacrament meeting, our home was busting at the seams with family, friends, neighbors, and lots of good food. Being the classy people we are we made a make-shift dining room in the garage to accommodate our guests. I think the garage door and tool rack makes for a nice backdrop, don't you?

 As part of the celebration my old piano teacher and ward friend played Sleigh Ride for one last time for a couple years. Here, check it out!


I am so humbled and thankful by the kindness and generosity of friends and family that came to wish me luck and give their love. Everyone that I have met over the last several years has helped shape me in some way, and has etched me into the person I am now. I look forward to see how the Lord shapes me even more in Mongolia.

Shout outs:

My lovely cousin Heather. "Do I get to be on the blog??"

Blessed to have all these worthy priesthood holders in my family. 

Honorary 5th roommate. The best bros a bro could ever have.
