So, first thoughts on Utah.
1. It's not so pretty
2. It's SO cold
3. The street layout is weird.
BUT, it has family. Family I haven't been able to get to know very well but who I am so excited to be with. There aren't any small children around my house in WA, so it is so exciting to hold a baby and look at how cute he is! I'm just not used to that.
My ward....is odd. Haha. I don't know the people yet- I hope that it will turn into a great experience.
I love being close to so many Temples. We were just talking tonight about all the Temples that we could go to while I am here. SO EXCITING.
I was a little homesick yesterday and this morning and I am sure I will feel that way A LOT in the months to come.But I know this was the right decision, hard, but right.
Have a swell week world.
I don't have any profound advice for you now :), besides- Love yourself and find what makes you happy.
