Mormon Journey Part 3: The guy in my Spanish class

by heather
This section has actually very little to do with Mormonism, but it is completely relevant to my journey, so I'm going to tell the part of the story where my husband and I got together, and I was a silly teenage girl. On occasion people have asked me if I always knew that he was the one for me. That would be a definite 'no'. My earliest memory of Alan was that he was in my seventh grade advanced science class. He sat a few seats over from me. My friend was making fun of him for being so shy. (Kids Read more [...]

Valentine’s Day on the Cheap

by heather
 This year for V-day I made beef jerky for my beloved. He will know this truly a sign of my love because I HATE touching raw meat, which is an unavoidable downside of making your own beef jerky. (Although it's very tasty, and super easy and inexpensive to do if you have a dehydrator and a jerky gun.) Including the cute container to put it in, it cost me less than $4. For my kids I found some cute V-day socks at Old Navy for 70 cents each and a couple books for a few dollars each. In the Read more [...]
