Sanctify Yourselves.


This morning Ashley and I watched a video from the LDS Youth website. I saw a friend post it on Facebook and that was when I realized that I knew the story told in the video not because I had seen the video before, but because I remember this happening in my town growing up. As Cameron might ask, "Something happened in the little town of Inkom, and it's on lds.org? What?" Surprising as it might be, there might be a lesson for all of us to learn from the little town of Inkom Idaho. (P.S. Click to make it full screen. It's cut off a little by the Blog.)

As we watched this, a different spirit entered our hearts. We began to ask each other, "What was Elder Holland trying to teach me? What can I learn from Bryce and A.J.?" So now I pose that same question to you. What lesson does God want you to learn from a miracle that happened in little Inkom Idaho?

Jesus Christ lives. The Priesthood, or power of God, is on the earth today. Through that power, A.J. lives today as a example that miracles do happen.

Life.

Ok, So before I got married, people always told me how incredible married life is. Now that I am married, I agree ONE HUNDRED PERCENT! This last weekend I have come down with a cold. at first it was just my nose and throat. I thought it was allergies. I was wrong. I woke up Saturday morning feeling terrible. All I wanted was some french toast and NO work. However, I had to go to a mandatory work training meeting that lasted 3 hours. We didn't have anything to make french toast so cereal had to do. :( While I was at work, not feeling well and craving french toast my incredible husband hurried around being simply incredible. After three long hours at work, Drew came and picked me up and I came home to this:




I walked in to door totally rambling about something not important and stopped in mid sentence and smiled. :) Gerber Daisies on the table. The table was set for two! For Lunch we had Sausage, Hash browns and French Toast (With HOMEMADE syrup!) It was the best Lunch Ever! It's great to have someone who takes such good care of me! You don't have to worry Mom and Dad, I am in good hands!

Honeymoon!

Ok, Ok, Ok, I know I am behind on Blogging. Slowly but surely, I will catch up!

Honeymoon!
Drew and I were able to go to the Oregon Coast (Lincoln City to be exact) on our honeymoon. It was SO relaxing and enjoyable!
TA DAH! Breath Taking right?



 We were able to have 3 nights and 4 days at the coast. Our humble abode while there was at the Pelican Shores Inn. Although it doesn't sound like much, It absolutely was! 

This is the view from our window!

King Suite (Including wine glasses, sparking cider and chocolate, "on the house")

Oh yeah! Beach front!





While we were there we went to the beach, did some shopping (GREAT outlet mall!), did some glass blowing, took a tour of the Tilamook Cheese Factory, Went to the beach some more, slept, ate, beach, and so on... Here are some pictures:
My husband's awesome photography skills... cool angle huh?

Finally here!

:)

This is us! Mr. and Mrs. Wright!

He realized the water was COLD!

Then thought, "what the heck.. why not?"
Our glass blowing was a pretty cool experience. It is kinda like blowing up a balloon, only the balloon is glass and it is a lot more complicated! We chose our colors and eventually blew up the glass. Check it out!
Drew. He was in charge of snipping the balloon off the pole.


Me! Blowing up our glass balloon

Our work of art!
 Well, now we are home. We have almost organized our home. Everyday it feels a little more homey :) School starts tomorrow. We are both nervous but excited for the new semester to start. It is always nice to have some routine in our lives. Drew and I both started working again. I am back at my old job as an academic advisor on campus and Drew started to work in the admissions office. He is a TOUR GUIDE! oh and he answers phone calls. :) I wish I were a prospective student so I could go on one of his tours. I bet he is the best tour guide EVER! Anyways... I will blog more later, lots more to blog about! Until then...

Keep the Faith,

The Wright Family!
