It's funny.

Sometimes we can convince ourselves that we live the most boring, unexciting lives. I'd just like to say I'm so grateful I bought a journal last summer. Looking through it tonight, I realized my life isn't so uneventful as I thought. Awkward conversations with famous people, last minute trips to Vegas to get over an exboyfriend, swimming in yucky lakes at midnight, hanging out with bands from California, and everything in between.

Life is beautiful.

Also, I realize I've been a terrible blogger this past year. I still love to write, I still love to read and be inspired by what all you great people have to say. I hope I'm not losing my lovely followers <3

Happy day.

Little miracles.

It's funny how you can go to sleep thinking the next day will be plain and ordinary. Just another Tuesday. But then for some reason, the stars align and the day ends up being a very, very big day.
I woke up with a text message this morning saying four of my biggest heroes were going to be in Utah Valley in an hour. I could barely eat my breakfast I was so excited!
So after some speedy driving, long distance running, and trying to catch my breath and act cool, this is what happened:

Duncan, Ben, Dave and Johnny are some of the nicest guys (and let's be honest, some of the cutest guys) I've ever met. If you haven't heard of their TV show, check it out here. Basically they had this amazing idea to go out and cross off a list of 100 things they want to accomplish before they die, and for everything they cross off on their list, they help a stranger cross something off on theirs. It was amazing to hear their stories of things they had gone through, like depression and anxiety, and then see where they are today: playing basketball with Obama. 

So today was good. And who knows, maybe tomorrow will be even better. But for now, I'll just cross off #37 on my bucket list:

#37 - Meet the boys from the Buried Life and let them know what I want to do before I die.
