Friday 5

1. Going for my first bike ride of the season. I've been itching for days to enjoy the beautiful weather and after getting my bike all tuned it was great to get out.

2. Putting exercise as a priority.

3. Spring cleaning. I LOVE spring cleaning and getting rid of things that I no longer have a need for. I do not love the large mess it creates as you have to make it worse before you make it better.

4. Breaking up the whole date rut by creating shaving cream artwork and getting slightly messy in the process.

5. Instead of rushing into and out of the temple, spending some time walking the grounds and reflecting on the thoughts and impressions I'd received. Plus, seeing all the beautiful flowers in their glory didn't hurt.

Friday 5

Where does the time go? It feels like it was just last week that I posted my last Friday 5, but, it's been almost a month. Holy cow.

So, what have been the highlights of the last month?

1. Getting to spend lots of time with family that I don't see often enough. Seriously, why do they all have to live so far away from me?

2. Celebrating a year and a half since our first date.
  
3. Laughing harder at My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, then I've laughed in a long long time.

4. Being uplifted by General Conference and words spoken by inspired men and women. If you are looking to add some inspiration to your life, I'd invite you to take a moment to listen and be inspired. You can read or watch these wonderful talks here.

5. Lastly, being reminded by watching a struggle of a friend, that the hope of the Atonement is very real and very powerful.
