Amazing Book

So, my parents have been going on and on about this book and movie, The Ultimate Gift, for a while. I borrowed the movie from them, but Jared and I never got around to watching it. This past week, I asked if I could borrow the book to take on the cruise with me. Well, I finished it in one day.

I got the book from my dad while I was at work, and I started reading a little bit of it during my lunch break. I got so into the book that as soon as I got home, I read the rest of it. Its not a long book, so it didn't take me too long. If you haven't read it, I would definately recommend reading it.

The book is about a guy named Red Stevens, who dies and his life long friend and attorney is reading his will to Red's family. The man's great nephew, Jason, is to recieve the Ultimate Gift from his late great uncle. However, Jason has to complete a list of tasks in order to recieve this gift. It made me really look at my own life and look at the things that I do, and how I treat others. It made me realize the small things that I want to teach my children.

So Close....

Jared and I are getting ready to go on our honeymoon next week. This couldn't have come at a better time for us. I am so burnt out from being at work and waking up so early. Jared has been working so hard at school and is now working full time, so we both could use a little R&R (Rest and Relaxation).

Jared and I have been so blessed with our wedding. We were able to already have one honeymoon down in San Diego right after our wedding, and now we are going on our offical honeymoon on a cruise through the Southern Caribbean. We are so excited to spend 7 days in our bathing suits laying on the beaches.
