I love Sundays

I've spent the past two days basically obsessed with blogging. So, how could I not write a new blog post? I was going to write one yesterday, but I literally spent most of the day changing up the design. As a testament to my personality, I was never really content with all of the different backgrounds I found and could not settle on one. Hmmm...Am I in more of a pink mood? Butterflies? Stripes? Polka dots? Moral of the story, I'm a terrible decision maker. Even down to the things that aren't really significant like a blog design. But eventually I can decide and this is what I've come up with! Let's see how long it lasts.

So, yesterday I got to sleep in, then designed my blog. My friend Edie and I went to get Jamba Juice later and it was definitely great fun. Hey Edie, remember when we left Jamba because we thought it was closed, but when it was open for 2 more hours we couldn't go back in after we walked out? Good times, good times.

So anyway, I went to church this afternoon. It was great, as usual. I really love my ward and all of the people in it. Then I came home and watched somewhere in the ballpark of 10,000 "I'm a Mormon" videos. They are utterly fantastic if you haven't seen them. I'll make it easy. (click me). Then I got reading The NieNie Dialogues and watching Stephanie Nielson speaking. She is so inspiring to me. I know I'm asking a lot of you right now, but check out her blog too! It's well worth it. In fact, this very moment I'm listening to Stephanie and her husband Christian talking on The Mormon Channel's radio show Conversations.

Sunday activities, like listening to Mormon Messages and reading conference talks and just taking a nap, make me so relaxed and happy. That's why Sunday is probably my favorite day of the week. Oh, and reading books too! I don't give my love of reading enough attention sometimes. In fact, I really really want to join a book club. So if you know of one in the Provo area please let me know!

Well, at this point I feel like I'm getting into some serious rambling. So, I'd better stop now. And following my "resolution" to work on my photography more, I'll post some more of my pictures...and my quote for the week. Quotes are my friend. No matter what it is (a letter, a blog post, anything) it ain't over until I include a quote.

"You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands. Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it."
