coastin' on a dream

Hello my dear friends! You haven't heard from me in a while, so I'll just give you a rundown of how my life has been the past little while.

These past few months have been a bit of a wild ride for me. I've had some major alterations in my life, and in turn have changed myself quite a bit. My best friend is out of my reach for the next two years; which has been one of the most difficult challenges of my life, but it has also been one of the most rewarding experiences thus far. I have learned more about myself this past month than ever before. I’ve been up, and I’ve been down. I’ve been backwards, sideways, and inside-out. I’m discovering who I am, who I’ve been, and who I’m meant to be. You might be a little confused of why I had to lose the man I love to find the person I really am. A wise person once said, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. So, here’s a few thousand words for you to feast upon while you ponder.

I've discovered really how strong I can be.

I've found joy in the little things.

I've cried in the Lion King musical.

I've pulled really great pranks.

I've laid on the beach and played in the waves.

I've found FUN things to do, in the most boring of places.

I've come closer to Christ, even on the hardest nights.

I've met amazing friends, and seen amazing bands.

I've laughed like never before.

I've snuck in to the Aggie football stadium at midnight, and beat 3 football players at football. 

I've taken risks and accomplished things I never thought possible.

I've cried more passionately than ever before.

I've remembered the good times.

I've discovered new talents.

I've learned to love life, especially my job!
 (my face doesn't exactly prove it in this picture though)

and I've loved him more than ever before.

When life gave me lemons, I made some pretty good freakin' lemonade. God gives us experiences so we can learn about ourselves through our choices. I quote the Black plague when I say "which seat can I take?" I'd like to think she chose the driver's seat. That's the seat I'd take. Where I can watch out the window as the world passes by, but have the ability to steer myself in any direction I choose. Life is beautiful!

"Put your shoulder to the wheel, push along! Do your duty with a heart full of song!"


Love, Holly

I am pleased to announce that I am officially leaving Maxim Healthcare. They've been good to me throughout these LONG 6 months, but it is time to move on from all that stress, on-call, crazy boss, rush hour-ness. Anyways, I am even more pleased to announce that I am working at Los Hermanos with my 2 bestest friends. I am beyond excited:) So anytime you want some delicious mexican food and/or want to see me, michael or ally...stop by. I will gladly embrace you in my soon to be loving latino arms:)

General Conference was probably the bestest thing ever. I might of teared up a bit to Elder Scotts talk on marriage and his loving words about his deceased wife. "It's time to say I love you" I'm excited to get married. SO excited. Not now, i'm too young...but that doesn't stop me from looking at utah bride blog e'ry day.

Lauren and Holly are coming home soon and i'm so ecstatic. This seperation is too much for me to handle! We are going to party like it's 1989 when they get home.

Life is crazy busy and I will most definitely be working close to 60 hours this week plus 4 soccer games. Not to mention squeezing in my desperate housewives and grey's anatomy time. I love me some grey's.

Oh and sometimes, I flat out refuse to do anything at work just because. Today is one of those days. I have been at work since 8 and I've been reading blogs and snacking on gummy bears the whole time. holler to the lazy.

Aww. Isn't that the cutest?

I want to go shopping for shorts and swim suits.

I want to go on hikes and picnics.

I want to roll the windows down in my car, belt out some tunes and dance like a crazy person.

I want to go boating and have tube wars.


Love, Amy
