Lucky Me...

So I happen to be part Irish, and March is a very important, nay, lucky time of year for me. In honor of the month of the Leprechauns...I would like to prove to the world why I am the luckiest girl around:

Reason #1: I am married to Anthony Reece Ivins. He is a pretty amazing guy. He rubs my feet, buys me soda, brings me roses (every week since we started dating), sends me on trips, reminds me that I am beautiful even when I feel gross, cooks me incredible dinners, takes me to get ice cream at all hours of the night, and most importantly, lets me be the crazy, neurotic maniac that I am, and loves me for it :)

Reason #2: I have the coolest internship ever. So far I have interviewed President Hinckley's in-laws, sat in on a state legislative session, watched 80 members of the Utah National Guard receive a surprise cruise, witnessed a truck blowing up on the side of the freeway, worked one-on-one with some of the most talented and experienced producers and reporters in the state... I never know where I will go or who I will meet when I get to the newsroom each morning. I have officially become addicted to life in the news biz, and I can't get enough of the ride.

Reason #3: I have a fabulous family. My parents are literally my best friends, and they never cease to spoil us. My sister Alysha is one of the greatest examples in my life...not to mention the one who is always there to build me up and make me feel loved. My brother Adam is off doing incredible things in California, always willing to serve anyone that comes into his life. My beautiful baby sister Kelly keeps me laughing so hard that I sometimes think I might die...she is SO much cooler than I was at 15. My in-laws treat me like their own daughter, and I am lucky to have acquired such hilarious brothers and such a sweet and talented sister. I can honestly say that I have never ever felt unloved with so many wonderful people in my life.

Reason #4: I come home to this little guy every night. Enough said.
