The other day I was driving to my parents house for Alex's birthday dinner. He was turning 19. It had finally just hit me that soon he would be leaving us to serve his mission and I would lose my little buddy for 2 years. I was on the verge of tears. I seem to be on verge of tears most these days. It's either Alex leaving, Hailey getting married or just life's little speed bumps.
And just went I thought all was lost in the world, I saw this billboard:
So, I might not have taken this picture right when I saw it. I might have seen it this morning on my way to work, taken a detour on my lunch break, got on the freeway and took the picture - for the sole purpose of this post. I was going to drive to Holladay to take a picture of the first billboard I saw, but when I saw this billboard this morning I instantly thought, "If anyone asks me if I have lunch plans, my answer is yes."
So, moral of the story: Not all is lost. Alex gets to go be awesome, Hailey gets to be married and give me an awesome brother-in-law (and two INCREDIBLE cute kids to be my instant niece and nephew) and I get to be single, date super hot guys*, go on lots of fun trips, stay up way to late, laugh with my girlfriends and drink unhealthy amounts of Coca Cola.
*If you know any super hot, eligible, trustworthy, nice, caring, priesthood holding, non-dramatic men - send them my way.
