I made the last drive for a long time from Mesa to Phoenix. I leave for Utah in a little less than 12 hours. As I passed familiar places and old memories, I found myself crying at the thought of losing the amazing relationships in my life I've established here in AZ ever since..well..ever since I can remember, really. Selfish, Natalie. Those tears were quickly transformed into tears of gratitude as I realized how BLESSED I have been, I am, and will continue to be. Heavenly Father has provided me with the beautiful opportunities of mending old wounds, fortifying relationships, and progressing with the people I love the most. And for that, I am grateful.

I'm grateful I can leave Arizona with no blemish of regret, of doubt, nor of a hard heart. Instead of sulking in the past, I'm ready to live in the present.

Here I come, Utah.

I have a whole bucket list of endeavors, and a boat-load of free time. So, Utah folks, speak up. Let's make adventures.
