Golden Days


Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, but there is something about having a day off of school that is absolutely amazing. I feel like I’ve been running 100 miles a minute lately and it felt so good to take a day and relax. My body won’t let me sleep in but I stayed in bed till around 10:30 so that was a total win, haha. Trent came home from school and we had a completely peaceful morning and then we were off to do something fun!

I love being married to Trent. Marriage is such an adventure with all the ups and downs but being in this adventure with T is such a blessing. He is always so positive and he works so hard! School this semester has not been easy on him but I’ve been so impressed by how hard he’s worked. I sure love him!

Today we decided to go on a 4 wheeler ride up at his farm. This fall weather has been incredible and the farm has the best views! As we wove through the mountains, Trent led the way and I tried not to crash. Jk, I’ve gotten a lot better with machinery since knowing Trent. This is a ride we do every year and I love seeing how the mountains change.

Funny story, when Trent and I were dating after our missions we had a moment that was kind of a make it or break it for us. We were both trying to figure out if we should continue in our relationship or who knows what? (Ugh…I’m so glad we’re married) It was a rough couple of days but we ended up going on a date and riding horses along this exact same trail during this exact same time of year. The ride was totally stressful because the sun set earlier than we thought and we were riding our horses in the dark…you can ask Trent about that one, haha. After the ride we came back and talked about “us”. Needless to say it was a good conversation and the rest is pretty much history. Every time I ride this trail I think of that day and how grateful I am that it all worked out.

Trent was kind enough to let me takes some pics, haha. I don’t think he knew what he was getting himself into with this photography thing. Sorry T!

It was so wonderful to be up in the mountains, soaking up as much fall as physically possible and just being together. It was just a happy, golden day.  This life is crazy but there are so many happy, happy days to appreciate. Don’t forget to find the happy and take a day for yourself every once in a while. We all need it.
