Quote of the Day

"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for."

I read this on my little sister's blog and thought it was very fitting for Adam's and my situation. Sometimes I feel so frustrated that we have to wait to get sealed that maybe I am forgetting to stop and enjoy just being with Adam. Even though we are not married yet, we still have a lot of fun and love to share with eachother! He makes me so happy! And it is true, our relationship was once something I only hoped for but never thought I would really have. So maybe we can just enjoy being with eachother and being in love. I know it won't be too much longer before we can get married, but until then, I still love every minute with him! Here are some of the things we have been up to lately.

Riding Bikes! Well, really, I have only ridden once with Adam, but it was so fun! Adam bought me a bike frame and put together this cute little white road bike. And bought me a pink and white helmet. What a sweetie. We rode up Provo Canyon and I think I did pretty well for my first time. Adam really loves to bike and I am so excited that I can share that with him now. I will be a pro before you know it!!
We saw Lion King at Capitol Theatre with the whole family. I love musicals and thought it was so fun. Mary Poppins is coming this time next year, I am already getting excited for that one.

Here we are at the Manti Temple. I had never been to this temple before, so that was a really neat experience. I love our little day trips and adventures.


  1. What a sweet post. Way to stay positive. You guys are going to see Mary Poppins? I was thinking that one would be fun, but there's no way Seth would go to that one. Maybe I'll take East and we can double. :)

  2. That is so true! You have always been able to stay positive even when things aren't the way you planned :) Reminds me of the mission.
    You are such a great example!

    Love you!

  3. I LOVE that quote! You really can apply that to any situation in life- I need to remember that. Thanks for the reminder. :) The other day I was thinking about how much you both are going to appreciate being married and being together so much more than the "average couple" since it's taken so much more effort and patience, you know? Like you won't take it forgranted like we do with a lot of things in life. :)

  4. Cute post Mandie!! I looove that quote. It's easy to forget.
    Sounds like you guys are having soo much fun!! Do you clip into your bike? I think that is so scary!
    Hopefully you guys can enjoy riding the scoot scoot together soon too! I can see it now... Adam cruising to your condo and you hoppin on back and ridin on over to J dawgs.... that's exactly what I used to do with Jessica!
