Last week I wrote many posts in my head.
They were lovely.
And funny too.
But I got busy and so they stayed in my head.
Which is a shame.
Because did I mention they were funny?
Instead of posting, I made a quilt that was auctioned to raise money for ovarian cancer. (Actually, my mom had to help me piece the top of it together as I ran out of time in the end. I am thinking that at some point in my life, I should get it together enough to not have to be rescued by my mother. I am also thinking that she is thinking the same thing.)
I put up jars of tomatoes and spaghetti sauce and raspberry jam for the winter (if it ever comes), with more to do today.
I've eaten about a hundred of these
and laid in bed dreaming about the tomatoes that made them irresistible. One night I told David I couldn't sleep because I kept thinking about getting up and eating another one. They were that good.

David and I put on a ward activity, which included a variety show that put me in front of the computer for hours and hours editing video submissions and compiling them all into a movie. My family made a music video to kick it off. I have included it below for your viewing.
And every night I was sure to ask David how it felt to be married to someone so capable and amazing.
And every night he said it was so wonderful he couldn't put it into words.
I said, "Try."
Because I love positive feedback.
Almost as much as I love tomatoes from Utah.
And now, our version of the Black Eyed Peas:
