upon returning, part 1

HOLA! soooooo to be honest, i am not sure how i feel about coming back to the blogging world. serving my mission changed my life and it means everything to me... and it has been hard for me to step back into the real world and especially to do everything that i once did before my mission. even if it is keeping my online journal :) i have dreaded hopping back on my blog and am still not sure i will continue it but at least 100 people have asked me if i am going to continue blogging and update you all on LIFE.

with that said, the reason i love blogging is because i just love to have a space where i can post all the pictures i take and actually remember the little details about my everyday life! which is why i had my mom keep my blog updated while i was on my mission.... so i can look back at those weekly emails and miracles with all the pictures! and to one day show my future children + posterity.

even though i am not quite sure how often ill be blogging... i thought i would at least share a few pictures of the things that have happened in the last 2 months upon returning home. and actually, since there aren't just "a few" this will have to happen in 2 posts, hence, the part 1!

so, onward! lots of pictures updating on whats been happenin ova here as of late.

 ^^^ General Conference!!! MAN i love it so much. every time. i grew such a deep love for General Conference as a missionary. it really is like CHRISTMAS! my family and i were able to go up and see it live at the Conference center and we absolutely loved it. how lucky we are to receive such divine revelation from living Prophets and Apostles of God. alsooooooo i was able to meet Dawn Armstrong from the movie Meet the Mormons! she is such a doll and a huge inspiration to so many.

 ^^^ Peery family party! it has been so good to be with the Peery's again as well. i love them so. they cracked out the kayaks and we ate good food and played some volleyball.... it was so fun! love those cute cousins.

 ^^^ MISSION FRIENDS!!! so grateful for them. i was able to see my AMAZING mission mom -- Hermana Dudley who i love with all my heart! we went to the temple together and it was so special. also had a little get togethaaaa with some mission pals at my house. mission friends are life long friends!

 ^^^ my bestie mia and i at Womens Conference. i missed her more than anything and it has been so great to be together again :)

^^^ my LAST package for my love Elder Peery! YES he is home and ill post all about that later :)

 ^^^ cousin love :) so wonderful to catch up with them again! now that kenz is living down here and briana is a married woman!

 ^^^ babysitting my sibs + cousins for a week with mia was quite the adventure. my parents went to Hawaii for a week (luckies! they deserve it. i love them and they needed that awesome week) we took them to do a lot of fun activities even while mia and i were both working full time! annnnddd these delish treats were made one night. oh so good.

^^^ David Archuleta concert! me, ky, savan & aydels. so fun!

^^^ i got a job!!! an amazing job that i love so much. im a CNA at Provo Rehab and Nursing. it is so fulfilling, and i just feel like it's another transfer :) my next step in life. the next thing my Father in Heaven wants me to do. i help people all day long and i have developed such a love for these people. which is why i love work! unfortunately i am on a bit of a medical leave of absence because of all my tailbone issues (which is a whole other story...) but i can't wait to go back. this job was such an answer to so many of my prayers!

so anyways, hey guys, im back! it's hard to even scratch the surface the way i feel about my mission and i hope to continue to express my love for it + the deep love i have for the Gospel of Jesus Christ... AND missionary work! but blogging and social media in general is such a resource to spread that love! so here i am, a changed Hermana Keena :) xx

ps: shoutout to my lovers! thank you for all the love and support. also, part 2 comin soon.
