...bunch of cute chocolate truffle mice that my dad sent us!
My dad gives the best little presents. Thanks Dad! On another note, I started my first day at the magazine today. Everything was going well until the grand pupa Editor walked in and asked me to edit a caption he had just wrote. I sat there staring at it for 10 minutes trying to find something wrong with it. I ended up circling the hyphen between the word "holiday-season," and putting a ? next to it. Hopefully I'm a little more impressive next time.
Christmas in 4 days! Merry Christmas + Happy Holidays! I love you all!

"He is the light and the life of the world." -Mosiah 16:9
Ah Christmas! You're here again. What a wonderful concept for a holiday. It's a time to relax and be with family and friends. It's a holiday devoted to light-- lightheartedness, light wallets, lights in windows and in trees, and the Light of Christ. Elder Eyring gives a great talk about this called "Home for Christmas." There's something special about this time of year. My family and I used to pile into our car with blankets, hot chocolate, and a 10-pc. chicken McNugget and drive around town looking for the best decorated houses. This year, Cole and I put up our own lights and tree and it's amazing how it fills our little apartment with warmth.
