10 Years Ago

Much of my blog is based around my dear husband Taylor. Sometimes I mention him ad nauseum. He’s honestly the best thing to ever happen to me. But did you know I had a life before Taylor? Did you know that in my first semester at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho, I met a boy, […]

Profound Effect

Tagged by Esther: Think of 25 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are […]

Revisiting my past in Texas

This weekend, I’m in the Dallas area with my good friend Janet. We have been friends since 1993. We grew up in the same neighborhood, have many common friends, attended YW together, were in drama in HS together, our parents are friends. We have a lot of history. Her dad is a very senior captain […]

The importance of December 5th

25 years ago, my brother Shawn was born. I’m nearly 4 years older than him. I fell in love with his big blue eyes and rosy cheeks. He’s a big teddy bear of a tenderheart. He likes to call himself my big little brother. His preference for chocolate has always been well-vocalized, and most of […]

Heartbreak revisited

Sunday morning, I was checking my email, and had an offline message from yahoo messenger. It was from someone I never thought I’d hear from again. It was from a man who broke my heart in such a cruel way. He was the first one I’d dated after my divorce. I fell for him hard […]

Life in Balmoral

You’ll see the history of my courtship […]

Eight years ago today

Current mood: nostalgic On March 26, 1999…Steve and I were married. We were married 4.5 rollercoaster years, then divorced. It’s kinda weird to think back on my life with him. It started out okay…we were married in the temple, and came from good backgrounds. We had some good moments and some fun trips, but the […]

I miss Dan. I’m chatting in MSN right now, but we’ve returned to the same topic of why he can’t accept conventional religion. I admitted that I think I was in love with him. He seemed pretty floored. Maybe I shouldn’t have said it. But I felt some relief in that disclosure. So, I never […]
