so i've been trying to write in this blog more. i consider it like my journal, because i really really dislike actually writing in a journal. i should, i know i should try to write in an actual journal for my prosperity and all that jazz, but it's hard. so for now, this is my journal. i guess i could print it all out and call it a journal right? yeah...let's just do that. 

so anyways, yesterday i had this great post planned out.....and it got deleted. it was about establishing good habits in the home. to sum it up, chauncey and i recently started making habits to better ourselves as future parents and to be better people in general. some of the habits we've established are simple things that we should've been doing all along, but life happens.so here they are:
  •  reading the scriptures every night. we just started reading the BOM last year, and it is awesome, seriously. our marriage is stronger, there is less contention in our home and we are happier. (don't get me wrong, things were fine before that, but reading the book of mormon really made a huge difference.)
  • having FHE every week. sometimes it seems hard to do FHE with just the two of us, but we figure that if we start now, then it will be easier to do when we expand our family. it is also nice because it invites the Spirit even more into our homes, and our lives. 
so far, with just doing those two things habitually, we have become so much happier. and we were already extremely happy! it has been wonderful :) i'm so grateful for chauncey, i tell him that every chance i get. but he has been so good at making sure we continue with these things, especially reading scriptures. we are over halfway through with the BOM and we have learned so much. i know that by doing these things we are becoming more and more prepared to bring little bundles of joy into the world. and i cannot wait for that day :)

p.s. i cannot believe i've been married for TWO years to this awesome guy. time flies, but we are having a great time and i can't wait to see what these next two years will bring.
