3 Holy Cow

I don't want to brag about my life, but it's a little perfect. I just feel extremely blessed. I was on the phone with my dear friend Ashley Eckel Ras the other day going on, and she said, "geeze dani, when it rains it pours!" That is exactly how I feel. I am so so content with where i'm at. Someone wise emailed me with a page of advice a couple years ago. In it she said two things that really stuck out to me:
1. Get in the habit of reading your scriptures now. It will be a million times harder when you're changing 2 diapers at a time and have baby food under your fingernails.
2. Don't rush it. Don't rush getting married. Don't rush having kiddos. Enjoy your current time of life because once it's gone, it's gone. She told me she'd give anything to be single again for one day & be able to party and chit chat with her girlfriends all night. How ironic, because that's what I do every night & by the end we're all on the floor laugh-crying. I feel very lucky to be able to do that.

I bought a Thankful Journal at the beginning of the year. Originally my goal was to write down three things i'm thankful for at the end of every day. Since I've been becoming more aware of all the blessings in my life, i've been writing down up to 20 things a night. You can bet that I get a good nights rest after that! Anyways, I'm super happy, I couldn't ask for more & I just thought I'd share!

Here's what I've been up to since Arizona:
Cheetah Mansion rookies and alumni come together for Leslie's Young Ambassador performance. Have I mentioned I have the most talented roommate in the world?The crew. These are the people I am with 24/7. Can't complain, can't complain. Just watch out for the Cheetahs in the top bunk... Oh, just an all night dance party with Nancy Pants. We whipped out the Britney Spears & NSYNC, no worries.
CPK lunch with the Cheetahs. Look how cute my friends are!


  1. Danielle...yes, you are SO BLESSED! I have been feeling the same surge of gratitude lately, too! It is a GREAT feeling, isn't it? So, so happy you're happy!!! xoxoxox

  2. That's awesome, great tipparoos! & a good reminder!

  3. I was looking at this post again and I love how Nancy is totally beaming in the picture of you, Natalie and her! You guys are so sweet to her!
