I guess the best thing about fall is that I see it as a new beginning. The last couple falls I haven't started school, but it still feels like it fits, that you get to start a new year and set new goals and decide once again who you are and what you're going to do with your life.
So here's to fall, and all of our new beginnings!

AROUND THE VALOR Last week I got to go with my fun mom on a cruise down to the Caribbean. We had SO MUCH FUN!!! We stopped in Belize as well but went CAVE TUBING so we couldn't take our cameras with us to keep them dry.
A HUGE HUGE THANKS to my parents for making this possible--I love you both so much and appreciate everything!
Some of our FaVOrIte ThIngS:

DONATE!!! So many times we wish we could become a part of something or want to do something to make the world a better place but don't know how--here is your chance! I'll say right now I made my $10 donation this afternoon.
Richard Winwood, business executive with Franklin Covey and founder of Million Air LLC said the following of Fight the New Drug, "Their positive message will appeal to every intelligent young person, and create in them a willingness to not only disdain pornography but to join the fight against it! I would encourage every concerned person to join FTND and get anxiously engaged in this movement. We are at war. Become a Fighter!"

Last night Jared and I went to the Logan Temple to do a session. We walked out at the end into a perfect Spring night--warm and clear, and I thought I couldn't possibly be any happier. We started to walk out to his car, but before we got to the stairs going down to the parking lot he pulled me over to a bench that sits just west of the temple and looks over the whole valley. We sat there and talked, and I have to admit the thought crossed my mind that this could be the moment, but then I brought myself back to reality when I remembered the ring wouldn't be done for another couple weeks.
We chatted for a minute, and then he turned to me and asked "T, why do you love me?" I told him the only thing that seemed to encompass it all: "I love how happy you make me." I asked him why he loved me, and he said "I love that I get to bring you to the temple." And he reached into his temple bag, got down on one knee, and said "Tierra Anne, Will you Marry Me?" Guess what my answer was!?
Right now, in this moment, everything is perfect and I couldn't ask for anything more.

Miles: I don't know where we gonna find a Mo-Go-Rath pinata.
Me: Maybe you should make one.
Miles: YEAH T, MAYBE YOU SHOULD MAKE ONE!
Me: How would I make a Mulgorath pinata?
Elise (Voice dripping with sarcasm): Come on T, we'll show you a picture. You'll be fine.
Miles (not picking up the sarcasm): Yeah T, I'll show you a picture. You'll be FINE!
So...I set out on my very first pinata making experience. Thank heavens for google which provided me with a great paper mache recipe, and for Hobby Lobby which provided countless random items to use. I finished it last week and it doesn't look great, in fact it looks a little like a brown Miss Piggy. But yesterday when I left my sister's house, as I was walking out the door, Miles came running around the corner and whispered: "Thanks for the pinata!" Totally worth it.
