I have piles to blog about. But I want to start by blogging about yesterday.
Yesterday was a fun-filled day at the Wilde household.
First, my dear friends for José and Sara Beth came to visit. It was a short visit, because José flew to D.C. today. Still, we had a lot of fun cooking dinner together, playing games, and just talking. So. Much. Fun.
Secondly, I graduated for the LDS Institute of Religion! I had one class to finish from before my mission and I finally did it. I know this isn't one of those things everyone does, and that most people don't think this is a big deal. But I wanted to finish what I started many years ago. So even though I don't think it makes a huge difference, or that it'll really impress anyone but myself, I'm glad that I finished it!!!
Finally, I was able to celebrate my birthday with the ones closest to me (geographically and personally). I do wish I could celebrate with my siblings, parents, etc. But that's just not possible to do when we live so far apart. So I am grateful that my friends took time out of their day to be with me.
I remember looking into their eyes as they sang me 'Happy Birthday' and thinking, "I am so blessed to have so many friends that care!"
Thank you guys! Such a great day! (Plus Osama was caught and killed! Bonus!).
Well, here are some pictures of the events! More adventures to be blogged about tomorrow.
