snowboarding. its such an epic feeling of gratification when i take that jump that i know i couldn't have done a year ago. its the feeling of flying. perfect control over gravity. It pushes me to my extreme physical exhaustion in a very gratifying way. I need the power and excitement to trump the boring nonsense that regular life entails.
laughing with my mom. Its one of the simplest joys. No one in this world knows me the way she does and the connection we have is by far the most genuine. I love her and love spending real time laughing and having a good time. I'm so blessed to have such an amazing mother.
dancing with my sisters. Because they are so much fun! and the silly moments are my favorite with them. I love how I can be my one hundred percent crazy self and they love me for it. Unfortunately they are now old enough to know how crazy I actually am:) lol.
hiking up to the waterfall at Adams canyon. I used to go up almost every day when I just got back from virginia. I loved being able to connect with myself and feel a bit more grounded. Plus there's nothing quite like the feeling of being removed from civilization:) Even thinking about it makes me want to be a kid again. Hiking up there with Ben, Phebe, Mckalle, Brady, Tai, Zaz, Robby and everyone else in the crew. I should try and get everyone together this summer for a big camping trip. If we schedule it pretty far in advance I might get more of the "posse" there. :)
building snowmen. I havent gotten all my snow clothes on and played in the snow in too long. Its so cozy and fun to be all snuggled up in layers and layers.
feeling the sun on my face. Thinking of summer. Remembering what it felt like to feel its warmth. walking home from church. with my heels at hand feeling the earth under my feet. :) i miss the sunshine. winters can be hard. i just need to get up on the slopes and do some snowboarding and enjoy the little bit of snow that's here:)
going to the park. which was always so special. I always think about Scotty B. always always.. and also pizza and playing frizbee:) those were such innocent days. Just all of us hanging out in the quite shade. When I look back to those moments it makes me envious of the simpleness that was my life. I honestly need to find these moments everyday. And learn to better myself every passing moment.
