Sweet Summer is FINALLY here!

I am an official graduate of Columbia High School, class of 2011. As weird as this sounds, trust me it feels much weirder. I will no longer endure 5 minutes to get to class, worrying about what I'm going to make myself for lunch each day, and the unnecessary yelling in the hallways. Summer is finally here and I am reminded daily of why it is one of my favorite things in the world. There is nothing like laying out in the sun(thinking I'll get more tan when everyone knows that won't happen), and sleeping in. There have been a lot of "favorites" so far this summer so here are just a few:
1. iPhone 4. You and yoiur simple beauty have become one of my favorite objects. "Betty" is amazing and I wonder why I ever loved my Droid so much. I'm an addict to my phone.
2. This next one isn't so happy, but still hilarious now. Have you ever seen 7 people break a staircase? I have. I was one of the 7. It's a long story, but if you want to know just look at the pictures on Facebook or ask me. (:
3. My two best friends chasing their dreams. Katherine went to Guatemala for a week and found her relationship with God increase. Francis went to Hawaii and learned that she missed me more than she thought ;) She is moving into her dorm Wednesday and I will be there to support and love her during the whole process. She amazes me with her strength and her wonderful advice. I am a very lucky girl to have such amazing friends.
4. Day at Girls Camp. Hannah Jo and I went to camp for a day and we realized just how much we LOVED our years at camp. It was fun talking with the leaders and remembering past camp memories.

Summer is just hardly here, and I can already tell it will be one of my most memorable. Utah, Shelby is coming in July!

BYU. Westmore. Anxiety. Family. Trusting. MY 5 YEARS IN UTAH.

For me, it’s usually night when all the feels start hitting and I get all sorts of nostalgic. August brings so many challenges for me in many ways. Once August hits it means summer is finally coming to an end and even though I’m usually ready to go back to work, the stress starts to creep in. Going into my 4th year seems bizarre. I don’t feel as if I’m a seasoned teacher, but since I’m not worried about the first day of school I think that says something. August also is the month where 5 years ago I took a big risk and moved to Utah. I left the comfort of my sweet southern home and stepped out on my own. Since 5 years seems like an eternity and a second all at the same time, I decided to write down the 5 most important things that have happened to me since I moved here.
1.Attending and graduating from BYU. I loved my time at BYU. I ran through my experience and I don’t regret that at all. I always knew the college lifestyle wasn’t for me, so getting through it fast was a blessing. I …

A Letter to Asher Rae.

Baby Asher,
Your momma is currently in labor and in a few hours you'll make your grand debut into this world. From the moment I knew you were coming I was in shock and how much my heart could grow. I work with sweet children all day and I love them so much. The love I already have for you is so different. You'll be the first grandchild of my parents, and you'll be my first ever niece. You're coming into a world that is incredibly hard and difficult. With your amazing parents in your life you'll be taught how to be strong and to be valiant in all circumstances. Your dad, my brother, is an excellent human being. He is dedicated, he is a dreamer, he is a hard worker, and he will be the most amazing father. Your mom is so beautiful. She is loving, she is patient, and she loves your dad so much. Your grandma, my mom, is SO excited for you. She will love you and spoil you, but she will also help you when things get hard. Your Grandma Forsyth is a tough woman. The toughes…

Coming to an end.

Considering my last post was in October, this morning I woke up and finally wanted to let the fingers type and do the talking. Since October my life has changed and I have grown so much. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I also always knew that I have both of my parents running through my blood. What this means for me is that I have this incredible drive to push myself to limits that haven't been set. My beautiful mother gave me passion for education. She constantly sets the example of the most excellent educator and one day I hope to be as successful as she is and was in the classroom. My mother gave me the realistic expectations that come with teaching, such as not always getting my way or having things work out in the way I would like them to. Bless her soul for being my constant supporter. My father gave me the drive to work hard and to never give up. He works construction and there hasn't been one thing that he hasn't finished once he set his mind to it. He …
