Life: Warm Winter

Once upon a time, a girl lived in Provo, Utah. She loved it there.  ...

And generally it's pretty cold this time of year... Like freezing cold... Like ice and snow covering the ground so you forget what sidewalk looks like...

But lately the weather has been weirding me out... Yesterday it got up to 60°.  Today we have a high of 55°.  Tonight, however, we are supposed to have two inches of snow... Only to be warm again by the weekend... I really don't understand it.

But whether I understand it or not is irrelevant.  The fact of the matter is I am absolutely loving it.  Aside from the occasional down-pouring of snow, Autumn jumped right into Spring.  It's been divine.

Today, for instance, I missed my bus home which was really a glorious thing because I got to walk home.  The sky was overcast and there was just the right amount of a slight breeze.  I just couldn't make myself walk fast.  I couldn't get my speed to accelerate much faster than a mosey.  And why should I? I had a four hour break ahead of me.

So as I was taking my usual route home, I noticed that there is a cute little corner shop on the way.  How had I not noticed before??  So, naturally, after making this discovery I walked right in!  I walked around for a time just looking at the packages, boxes, bottles, bags, and other miscellaneous items filled with goodness.

I eventually ended up at the cash register with a Lunchable, a Jones Soda, and a Hostess Fruit Pie.  In retrospect, I probably should have taken a picture of my loverly picnic makings before I devoured them... But I was hungry... So I apologize... This mashed up picture (supplied by Google Images and Paint) will just have to suffice.

So such was my walk home. And it was truly blissful.

One side-note... Just because I'm smitten and I think we're adorable and everyone should know about us... :)
Here's the text convo Andrew and I were having while my adventures home were ensuing:

Andrew:  My beautiful, sweet Amanda.  I beheld the most beautiful sunrise this morning that I've seen in quite some time.  The clouds above the snow capped mountains seemed to be ablaze with fire and the array of colors that emblazoned the sky astounded me.  At that moment  I wanted nothing more than to hold you in my arms and share with you in enjoying the beauty of God's creation.  Though I was not able to go through with this desire I know we will have many more times to hold each other, to see and experience amazing and beautiful things together, and have our love grow and develop together.  I love you Amanda , more and more everyday. :)

Amanda:  Oh my dear Andrew... How you captivate me so.  I am yours through and through.  Gush gush mush mush :P Haha

Andrew:  Hahahahaha I love you. ;)

Amanda:  Haha Right back at ya, stud! ;)

I told you we're adorable.

Till next time, lovely blog,
