camp!



i'm home from camp!

and just as expected, it was a hardcore, fabulous experience.

i'm not going to lie: there was a moment before camp [while i was sewing yellow ruffles on pillowcases], that i wondered, "why do we do this, anyway?"

but, now i totally know the answer.
we go to girls camp to learn.
& enjoy life.
& remind ourselves of who we are.
& what we believe.
& what our mission on this earth is.

it was incredibly refreshing to be in nature [cool weather!], away from cell phones & internet & money & obligations, spending time with a group of the most AMAZING young women ever, having so.much.fun & refocusing on my personal goals as a wife, mother & friend.

i love the gospel so much.
i know, with all of my heart, that it is true.

camp was just what i needed.
and it made coming home extra sweet too. ♥

Camp is one of those things where SO MUCH WORK goes into it & there is lots of eye rolling from the men(maybe just my husband) as to WHY we are spending time doing unnecessary things...but at the end, it is always worth it! The girls are so amazing & I always learn more from them, then they do from me!
