welcome spring?

saturday was a glorious, balmy 70 degrees and we were loving every minute of it. in fact, on our way to sunflower market that day [with our short-sleeve shirts and windows rolled down] b and i discussed how nice the sunshine was and we agreed spring was here to stay...except, of course, for that random spring snowstorm utah seems to receive every year without fail.

then we woke up the next morning to this:

that's like 4 inches! wah wah. well played, utah. snow is so pretty but it does not belong in april. got that?

anyway, we had a fantastic busy weekend, full of family, friends and inspiration. got to have dinner with my old boss and his cute family, caught up with my bff, spent time with my grandparents & cousins over sunday lunch and had the in laws over for dinner last night. oh, and of course watched general conference, my favorite time of year.

i always like to find a common theme among conference talks and this year there were a few, but one topic that seemed to really stand out to me was FAITH. faith in dealing with trials, replacing fear with faith [obviously something i need to work on...see previous post], having faith in the future -- faith that god knows who you are and what you're dealing with and will strengthen you, and won't give you more than you can handle.

with all the unknowns we're dealing with in the wells household right now [graduation in 3 weeks and still no concrete plans, thanks for asking] it was such a good reminder to me to just hang in there, do my best and let my heavenly father guide our path just like he has done every day up till now. uncertain events that make me nervous and doubtful have ALWAYS been followed by peace, happiness and something better. that snow we had yesterday? already melted. today it's supposed to be 60 degrees. i just had to wait for it to come.
