My Last Hoo Rah.

So, me being me, I had to go on one last HOO RAH
before I leave for my mission. St. George it was (of course).
I loved it. It was exactly what I needed.

Since I was young, I have been OBSESSED
with the music from The Phantom of the Opera.
I know every word to every song, and
have sung the music to this play my entire life.
The funny thing is, is I have never seen the play.
So, one of my lifelong dreams has been to
see the play live. On Friday, Patrick told me
he would drive down with me to Vegas to see
it with me. Seriously, I have the best brother EVER!
We drove down, ate dinner, saw the play, and were
completely amazed. I teared up as I watched the play.
It was even better than I had ever imagined,
and I sang along the entire play to every word.

My boss sneaked a picture of me shooting my last wedding.
Although I look really lame, I do have a smile on my face.
Someone asked me why I love my job so much.
Imagine capturing the best day of two people's lives
who are so much in love they want to spend eternity together.
Everyone is so happy, and I get to be there first to see it.
I want to thank my boss for capturing my moment
of the happiness I have while working.
I'm not going to lie, I cry at least once
every time I shoot a wedding.

I played tennis today for the last time before I leave
with my mom and my 2 sisters, Whitney and Annelise.
When I am with them, there are at least 3 occasions
in a 4 hour time frame where I laugh so hard I can't breathe.
They are all hilarious, and always have the funniest stories.
Although we all played horrible because we haven't played
since Thanksgiving, we had the best night laughing our heads off.
I am going to miss those moments for the next 18 months,
but those moments are one of the things I am looking
forward to the most when I get back.

I visited my wonderful Aunt Carol today,
and she said the best quote...
"My cookies are good for you!
They are made with LOVE!"
I will never forget that when I decide to eat her
cookies at 8 a.m.

My Last.

Today I shot my last wedding before I leave.
It was one of the best weddings I have ever shot.
I seriously soaked in every second,
and loved the fact that I was there.
I am going to miss it so much.

I went to a friend's wedding reception
tonight, and I HAD to look good
(for certain reasons), and my dad
was wondering why I was stressing
out so much about it. I told him,
"Dad, because I HAVE to look GOOD!"
He then replied,
"You always look good, Elizabeth."
My dad always knows what to say
to make my day.
Love you Dad.

I have taken a liking to sitting on my roof
and just sorting through all of the
many thoughts that run through my head.

This is something I have never done,
because I am one of those people
who can never just sit;
I always have to be doing something.
Since I have started doing this,
I find it one of the most peaceful
activities EVER.
It is nice to just take a break
from LIFE sometimes.

Although umbrellas are one of my
top 3 favorite things in the world,
I love standing in the rain.

As I was making a movie today,
I looked outside and it was
pouring rain. A rush of
excitement came over me
and I got up to run outside.
I just imagined the feeling
to be able to stand in the rain
with my eyes closed and
feel the rain soak up my body.
As I opened the door, I looked
to see hail was streaming down
out of the clouds, hitting my
foot and causing enough pain
for me to change my mind.
I looked up the weather, and
it is supposed to rain tomorrow.
I cannot wait for a second chance.

My favorite Sunday activities:
~Laying on the hammock
~Going on Sunday walks
I did both today, and LOVED it.

Today is August 1st.
I remember when I got my call,
I wondered what I would feel like
when today would come.
I wondered what the month of
August would bring for me.
Its finally here, and I couldn't be
