Hey y’all, I feel like I’ve been gone forever, but it’s really been less than a month. March has been absolutely crazy for me, but it has also been one of the best months I’ve had all year.
First there was prom and then Lauren made me my favorite cake- lemon with raspberry anyone? I could seriously eat the cake she makes the rest of my life.)
The same day, Ry and I left for Youth Conference (basically a conference/activity thing for boys and girls age 14+ in my ward at church). This year we stayed overnight in cabins up at a place in the mountains called Aspen Grove, I got to make so many jokes it was great. Guys, you have no idea how much fun I had this trip. The first night we went to a devotional where Madilyn Paige spoke (If you don’t know her, she was a singer on the Voice, and she is an absolute sweetheart, make sure you check her out!) She spoke all about our theme which was Do good, See good, Be good, and all about self-confidence and relying on God.
After the devotional we had a dance with a bunch of different wards from all over the state and it was bomb! The DJ was great and everyone was actually getting into it and not being lame. Also, my little brother FINALLY danced with me and it was adorable! We found this guy who my friends were all obsessed with, and he was really fun, but the main point is that they were legit stalking him and it was hilarious.
After the dance we headed back to our rooms for the after party to listen to the other songs we wanted to (because they apparently “weren’t appropriate” for a church dance. Okay, they weren’t, but still. We partied for a bit more and then Ry and I went to our own room (because I was sick and didn’t want to cough all night and keep everyone awake). We talked til about 2 am and man I really missed spending time with her, it was great 🙂
The next morning at breakfast, a girl in my ward got a napkin folded into a rose and when we asked her what was on it, she was like, “oh just some numbers” And let’s just say I almost died I was laughing so hard when she realized what she said. After breakfast we played some team building games where we had a partner and had to get in certain positions, like jumping on each other’s backs, or crawling under them, etc. And it was so so funny to watch.
The last thing we did, was go SNOWSHOEING! (Or cross-country skiing, but I was sick so I chose snowshoeing). The view was breathtaking from the top of the mountains, I love the outdoors. On the way down we found this wooden arch with a sign that says, “Fort Aspen”, and I thought a picture was necessary 🙂
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Like I said, March was crazy for me, and as my blog is kind of an online journal for me there will be 2 more posts in the really near future. I decided to just split them all up to avoid making a super large post and so that it’s easier to find when I’m looking back.
P.S. I’m sorry for all the update posts, they’re probably boring to all of you, if you have any ideas of posts you’d want to do just comment down below!
Love y’all! -Aspen AKA The Author
