Happy April!

April is off to a fantastic start. We've had a little taste of early summer (yes, summer) over the past few days with lots of sun, a light breeze and temperatures in the high 80's. Spring is coming back tomorrow and really, I'm not complaining either way. I love sunshine.
This morning, like every day this week, I enjoyed a good run in beautiful 75-degree weather without a cloud in the sky. I seriously couldn't wipe the smile off my face... and still can't. It's been a great week.
Around the 3-mile mark, Hilary Weeks' song "Unwritten" came up on my iPod. (Yes, I am a nerd and my running playlists include Broadway musicals, Hilary Weeks and country, along with the usual running repertoire.) In the song, she looks back on her life and expresses gratitude for the way the Lord has guided her story. As I ran along, I thought about all the different choices I could have made and all the different paths my life could have taken, and I felt a whole new sense of gratitude toward my Heavenly Father for getting me to where I am now. Life isn't perfect, but where it really matters, it is. I'm so grateful for my Savior and the gospel, and for the countless blessings I've been given. I love my life and wouldn't have it any other way!

Matt and I are excited to spend the weekend watching General Conference. No matter how great life is, it's always a little better after hearing from our church leaders and learning more about our Savior. Feel free to tune in with us--it's available online in real-time at http://lds.org/general-conference?lang=eng.
