“Tis the season to be jolly and be thankful for all that you have.”
Winter Break is amazing~ I am truly blessed with all that I have been given and I have the most amazing friends and family ever. I have been able to spend quality time with my friends and family and reflect on ways that I can become more like my Savior. Christmas this year was not all about gifts it was about Christ. I was able to attend an unforgettable sacrament meeting put on by my Grandfather and Wendy Watson. I learned more about the symbolism of Christ and how to use the gift of the atonement in my life in order to become closer to the Savior. The spirit was strong and it made the rest of my Christmas day joyous and full of love.
I truly love giving gifts and making other people smile.
I have loved my break from teaching and have packed my days off with fun events, family outings, and a best friend getting married.
I am so grateful for the gospel and recognize whenever I find myself randomly smiling throughout the day it is because of the joys I receive by being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Lindsey Ann Smart Smith's Wedding
One of my best friends decided to take the next big step in life and get married to the man of her dreams Jake Smith. Their wedding dinner and wedding reception were amazing. She was the most beautiful bride ever and her decorating skills were amazing. I love Lindsey so much and she has played a very important role in my life. She has helped me become the person that I am and I am grateful for her example in my life. Congrats Linds and Jake you both are wonderful!
