IM ENGAGED! I don't even know what to say other than I am SO happy and I am so in love with Forrest. This day was the best day of my life! I am still trying to put the pieces together in my head how I didn't figure this plan out. I was in total shock and had no idea that this was going to happen. After being best friends for two years and then starting to date I knew for sure I wanted to marry my best friend. HOW LUCKY AM I!?! This was such a magical day and he had our family and friends there as well. Seriously, still trying to figure out how all these people are so good at keeping a secret from me but I'm so glad they did and I'm so excited to marry Forrest Allen. I LOVE YOU!

the best dating advice.

Ill let these guys do the talking.
They will do a much better job than I will.
They are the best at giving advice.

The list could go on and on -- I live for these inspiring talks!
Heres just a few of my favorites I have come across in the past bit as I have been reading and learning. I am constantly reminded how grateful I am for this gospel and the knowledge I have of these things. Our counselors are inspired people and guide us to make the right decisions.

I can't put into words how much I enjoyed going to Northern California, specifically San Francisco. Especially going with such a fun group of friends made this trip extra special!
We were able to hit tons of spots in such a short amount of time and wander around the city- ultimate weekend vacay!! A much needed break from school am I right?!
Heres the latest pictures from our trip! Thanks to Matt James for always being the best photographer. Who knew in 9th grade when we became friends, we would end up at the same college years later going on trips together and taking pictures almost every week. He is the serioiusly.
