Dear Mom and Dad-

It has been a long time since I last "wrote" (even though I send you several emails a week!). My excuse for this past week is that it was SPRING BREAK!

As you know, I headed to Idaho and Utah where I was able to visit with a few friends. Not as many as I would have liked but that will just mean another trip in the near future!

One of the reasons I headed south was to attend General Conference. I got to go to both Sunday sessions and it was delightful. Thanks to my friends "presidential" connections we sat just 13 rows from the Prophet. So neat. I could make eye contact with the Quorum of the 12.
I so badly wanted to take pictures but since I was surrounded by family members of the people on the stand I was making eye contact with, I felt a little awkward.

After the morning session I was turning around to leave our row and who did I come face to face with? Sheri Dew. Oh my. I apologized and she kindly said "that's okay". (that may not have been her exact words but it was something to the effect of it being okay that I almost chest bumped her).

Don't worry- even after my brushes with fame I am still the same humble, wonderful daughter you remember.

Lots of love-
your humble, wonderful daughter
