Well. After traveling for 5 days and a 37 hour flight- I’m home.

God bless America!

What’s your favorite temple? Because you’re mine.

You remind me of the fruit in Lehi’s dream. Precious above all others.

My Liahona pointed to you.

Haven’t we met before… like in the pre-existence?

Can I borrow your phone? I told my mom that I’d call her when I found the girl of my dreams.

I may need a map, because I’m lost in your eyes.

You’re beatiful in Gods eyes, and mine too.

Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I need to walk by again?

Did it hurt? [Did what hurt?:] When you fell from heaven?

For a minute there I thought I had died and gone to heaven, but now I realize that I am very much alive, and that heaven has been brought to me.

I don’t think you’re worthy to take me to the temple. [Why?:] Because you’re smokin’!

Dearest Darling… after much deliberation, and signficant consideration, I have half the inclination to make you my relation. So if you’ll meet me at the station, with the bishop’s cooperation, we will form a combination that will increase the population.

Last night I was looking at the stars, and for every one I saw I thought of something that I love about you… but soon I ran out of stars.

I knew I’d feel the Spirit at EFY, but I didn’t think I’d see an angel!

What’s a Celestial boy/girl doing in a Telestial place like this?

What time is it? Because I want to forever remember the moment I met you.

Are you a Gadianton Robber [No:] Well, you stole my heart.

Can I see your tag? Oh, I thought so… Made In Heaven.

And MY personal favorites:

Is your name Virtue? Because you garnish my thoughts unceasingly ūüėČ

Hey, what’s your name? [Insert Name:] Hmmm, that sounds familiar… I think it was in my Patriarchal Blessing!

Sisar Clifford’s Last Week in the 84010

Remember this post? ¬†Way back in July? ¬†Well it happened, and I can’t even believe it came that quickly.

I came down for one last Sister Saturday, which we filled with all of the Clifford Sister’s favorites: Just Dance 2,3, and 4; Keeping Up with the Kardashians; our favorite episodes of Gilmore Girls and The OC (Chrismakka of course); ¬†crawled in my bed for a final viewing of our all-time favorite Harry Potter 3; and ended the night by staying up until the wee hours of the mourning viewing One Direction and Justin Bieber’s videos.

On November 11th, the celebrations (for lack of a better word) began for Sisar Clifford’s farewell….

A blizzard worthy of Finland.

Sister Clifford did an incredible job giving her farewell talk, with lots of cool stories of her cool adventures, and continually mentioned how ready she was to get out of Logan (much to my offense). ¬†I held up surprisingly well, until she announced to the public I would be receiving my mission call that week, at which I felt the entire congregation turn and stare at my face. It took a good deal of strength not to curl up into the fetal position and bawl at that point. ¬†Not because Kamille was leaving, but because I had realized that I was not as mentally prepared with the thought of leaving as I thought I was. ¬†But It was exciting to come back to our house and celebrate Kamille’s decision to serve with all our friends and family.
The next few days were full of last minute shopping trips and goodbyes, all while trying to get her packed for the next 18 months of freezing weather in Finland. ¬†Unfortunately I still had school and work that kept me in Logan until Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean that I necessarily got much done. ¬†Tuesday night turned out to be a crazy one, with some unexpected (but hoped for) events- soon to be posted about. ¬†But it was exactly what my family needed to take the edge off of this new adventure we were about to embark.

Thanks to her time abroad in Asia she insisted showing us up with the chopsticks.

After all of our friends and family left, and only minutes ¬†before we were supposed to be leaving to get set apart, Kamille called Maddy and I up to her room where she presented us with some lovely t-shirts sporting the saying ‘You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful’ in which we donned and had one last dance party (while sobbing) to the ever-comforting One Direction.

… and with one final photo Sisar Clifford was off for her next adventure! ¬†We love her and miss her everyday. ¬†It’s a miracle that my Dad has stopped crying a month later. ¬†But I think the packages he sends her weekly is a nice medication for the both of them.DSC_0119
