Pife of the Larty

I often dislike when people ask me how I am doing. It's a nice gesture, but it's a difficult question for me to answer. I typically say, "Not bad" or "Good," followed by, "I'm just working and hanging out at home." My life should be more interesting than this, I think to myself. Well, it probably is more than I realize. I guess I would say having driven through five countries in Europe, visiting family and friends in Oakland and Salt Lake City, riding four-wheelers and rafting in Idaho, weekend trip to Astoria and parts of Washington, and touring Japan all in the last year is definitely interesting. Many people don't travel this much in their lifetime. Still, it does not seem to be enough...

...until I think about the many blessings in my life such as a wonderful and loving husband, a crazy black lab, a comfortable home, a challenging job, a knowledge of the gospel, a supportive family growing every year - neices and nephews - and an exciting future ahead of us. My life is definitely interesting and I am grateful for everything in it!
