Aside from a few Visiting Teaching posts here and there, it has been quite a while since I've blogged. Life got in the way.

So I thought I would take a minute and catch up.  We won't go back too far, but just in this year alone we have taken a few trips, had a few surgeries, our oldest son graduated from high school and left to serve an LDS mission to Spain, and we relocated our family from Lehi, Utah to Rexburg, Idaho in July.
Most of my time since then has included getting the kids settled in their new schools and activities, exploring our new surroundings, dreaming of fun projects for the new house, painting the new house, and unpacking an endless supply of boxes from our old house.
We are exhausted, but we are loving our new adventure and are so excited about life.
My goal is to check in here a little more often.
I miss interacting with you all and can't wait to share some fun new recipes, travel experiences, and projects.  I will continue to do a monthly Visiting Teaching message.  You all know that I believe Visiting Teaching is super important.  VT Messages are not going away.  I also spent the past few years in Young Women and am now serving as the Primary Chorister, so I will be sharing some ideas there.  
Although I am not working as a travel agent anymore, I still love travel and hope to be able to share more travel adventures, and tips and tricks.
My appreciation for good food is never-ending.  I hope you will all continue to join me for mmmonday recipe ideas.
And you all know that I will be decorating, demo-ing, painting, and glue-gunning.  A lot.

For those of you who are still reading, I would love to hear what you would like to see more of.  I would love to see your projects and ideas, and if you blog, I would really like to visit.

Also, thanks for your patience as I update the ol' blog.  I am learning as I go, and eventually all of the links will be up and running again.

Have a great day, and a wonderful weekend!

Last month was our annual LDS General Conference, which means that it is time for another batch of Conference Preserves!
Conference Preserves help us to remember the wonderful Spirit that we felt as we listened to General Conference and help us to share those moments with those who may not have been able to watch or listen.  If you would like to read or listen to messages from General Conference, click here.
To make and share these preserves with your Visiting Teaching sisters this month, you will need 4 sheets of cute printed double-sided cardstock {per sister}, a jar with a lid, and maybe a little treat to add.
Print the Conference quotes, here, here, and here and also the tag for the top, here.
Next, cut along the dotted lines, fold and assemble.
So easy.
Happy Visiting Teaching!
