I decided that this here blog isn't just a look at Brook anymore. But a look at OUR life.
So I decided to start fresh with our new little fam blog.
themotesfam.blogspot.com is where we will be.
This blog is filled with countless memories from the young age of 13 to my college years.
It is something I will cherish forever and look back on.
which is why I keep blogging.

The amazing Martin family threw me a bridal shower in St. George and it was absolutely adorable in every way. Tracy is an amazing party planner/decorator/second mom. Lots of old friends, neighbors, primary/yw leaders made it and it was so fun to see everyone. I'm thankful for every person that has helped shape me into the women I am today. i'm blessed beyond measure.
Thanks Martin family, mom, & all my friends and family for coming and supporting Kendall and I. & thanks Kendall for being a good sport and tagging along (& delivering fresh flowers to me :))

These ladies threw me the cutest, funnest bachelorette party. Complete with canvas painting, cookies for brookie "cookie", and lots of laughs.
so happy to be reunited with all my ladies. At the wedding we will all be reunited with miss Jasia there too.
I'm so thankful for all these girls and the impact they've had on me in my life. I couldn't have survived college without them!

This summer i've been an EFY Health Counselor. It was a great experience and I got really good at giving kid's bandaids, ibuprofen, & pepto bismol ;) gotta love it.
This summer has been the best learning more about "what matters most" in life. I've been able to focus more on my Savior, Jesus Christ and come closer unto Him. Being in Nauvoo this week my testimony has been strengthened, especially of the prophet Joseph Smith. I'm thankful for the sacrifices he made so I can have these great blessings. Especially the blessings of the temple- reaching the goal of celestial marriage and entering into the temple is what matters most so we can return home to our Father in Heaven. #efy2016nauvoo2#whatmattersmost #lds #bestco #goodohlteam
