We all got the news last night that our beloved Prophet and leader, President Gordon B. Hinckley, who led our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) through the last 12 years, died last night at the age of 97. It is amazing all that he has done for our church and now he is finally at rest. Though we will miss him I am filled with peace and joy knowing that he is where he needs to be, he is home. Also, he is with his wife! He has expressed how bad he has missed her since her passing, on several occasions. I am so grateful for all that President Hinckley has done for us, and how faithfully he served God and this church. We will miss him!!

**********i just started violin lessons!!! i bought this violin a few months ago but haven't done much with it (until now)...i use to play, i played for 5 years and quit when it wasn't so "cool" in high school anymore...so i really want to reclaim the musical talent that i once had, so here's my attempt!
so i am so stoked that the last three days, including today has been sunny! this is big people! it has been a long dark rainy winter, with no sun! its really hard on me! i am a SUN GIRL! i have to learn to cope with the lack of sunshine now in my life...coming from TX to portland is a major transition for me...i just tell clint that the trade off will be lots of traveling each year around winter! too bad it is still frigid cold outside (32 degrees right now) so i took a few pics inside...CANT WAIT FOR SPRING!
