Life has a funny way of surprising you with things that you never expected for yourself. It has a way of testing your faith, emotions, and thoughts about life in general. I feel like we are always wondering if the story we are writing is really the novel we want to be published....If you had told me a year ago that I was going to be waiting for my best friend on a mission, and that i would be Miss Utah County. I probably would've laughed in your face and told you that you were crazy! here i am 19 years old and doing things i never thought i would be doing. it's funny when you put your mind to things, and believe in yourself it's not life that surprises you....it's yourself.
