Our weekend was seriously great. Saturday at 4 am I couldn’t sleep, which is odd, because usually I can sleep anytime, anywhere. So I got up and tried to be productive. I made cinnamon rolls from scratch for the first time ever, and they were seriously delish. I would share them, but we ate them all. Sorry about that.
I am going to let you in on a shopping little secret. Two words: General Conference. The Gateway was totally abandoned by all the good people attending GC…I swear I was the only one in Anthopologie. A whole store just to myself- this is how Oprah must feel! Now before you get all judgy, I did set my Tivo to record both sessions so you just shut your mouth.
Sunday’s sessions of general conference were awesome. Do you ever feel like one or two talks were specifically written for you? President Monson gave this talk about finding the joy in the journey– really enjoying where you are in life, because it all goes by so quickly. Seriously, I felt like he was sitting in my living room saying “Sister Sorensen..I would really like to talk to you for a minute…”
I am so anxious for things. For dogs and for babies, for a house and for being grown up. Jazz knows this because I talk about it every single day. I suddenly freak out when I realize that we are getting so incredibly old and THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME. He keeps reminding me that we have lots of time, and to slow down and stop being so dang dramatic. So this is my new goal- not to be able to buy a house next year or to have a baby before I’m 26– but to really enjoy everything that I have right now.
In between the sessions on Sunday, Jazz and I went for a walk to the park near our house. There is this big overlook of the canyon, right at the mouth of Little Cottonwood. We just held hands and sat on the bench and looked at the fall leaves and the snow on the tips of the mountains. It was one of those times of total contentment, complete bliss. There was no place on the entire earth that I would rather have been than sitting there in the cold with my best friend.
