What I'm Trying To Say

Winter break has been more lovely than I could have ever expected. Scott and I both got great news about our Fall semester grades, we went on an awesome trip to Las Vegas, had fun shopping around and enjoying the holiday cheer, and had an amazing Christmas. What I'm trying to say is that I'm so thankful for our sweet life together, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!

The title of my blog post today might have been inspired by something else. For years I've said that if I could own one record, it would be Stars' Set Yourself On Fire. Since high school I've been obsessed with the band, and we even saw them once a few years ago in downtown Phoenix. Their records are fairly rare, and Set Yourself On Fire is even more rare than all of their other ones. Finding a US or even European of it seemed almost impossible, but I've been letting my heart wish away for years now.

So for Christmas the sweetest man in the world track down a copy of the European edition of Stars' Set Yourself On Fire on ebay and purchased it as a present for me! It arrived all the way from Germany last night, and I have to say, my heart couldn't be any more full. I'm so thankful for having such a kind, loving man in my life. Thank you John Scott, I will cherish it forever.

Today Scott and I have to get a few things ready for some scholarships we are applying to. I also have some cleaning and de-cluttering to do, as well as a few fun blog related things. Tonight we're going to an annual holiday party that we always look so much forward to!
