today i recieved my patriarchal blessing.
i can't find the words to describe the way it makes me feel.
i cried. i am so extremely blessed.
in other news, this is the most breath-taking picture ive ever seen of my town.
this picture sums up my entire life. it sums up where and how i grew up.
you can see the mountains where i spend all my time.
the lake where i spend time fishing and driving through the back roads.
you can also see the building that zach likes to call "the cloud maker"
if you've never driven through the back roads by the lake, i highly suggest you do it.
its so relaxing and peaceful.
i love where i live.
