So I have finally decided to stop being lazy, and post pictures I took basically five hundred years ago. No big deal or anything. These photo are from this summer. I guess this is kind of cheating, because I didn't take this pictures. My friend Anna from Anna Apricot did!

I guess this would be the time to let everyone know that I have had some changes in life plans. I am no longer going to be serving an lds mission. It is something that I feel good about, and I decided that school was more important to me. I kind of got caught up in all my friends leaving on lds missions, that I thought it was the right thing for me. I am so much happier with my decision to stay, and I feel like a huge stress has been lifted off my shoulders.

I want to thank all of you for being so supportive throughout this whole process. It is crazy to have such a support system from people I have never even met. You guys are the best, and I am so grateful for you all.

Well, I guess back to the pictures. Again, these were taken by my lovely friend Anna. I asked her to take missionary photos of me. I am so in love with the results, that I just had to share. This was the photo shoot that involved the billion pound chair that almost killed us! Enjoy!

And of course I wouldn't be me without a picture like this!

  3. ah these pictures! that skirt! your pixie! the chair! your smirk! you are a dime, shelby!

    also...thanks for sharing your thoughts on a mission. i was finished with my papers when i met my husband, and within the first week of dating i knew he wasn't something i could take a rain check on. i felt like the biggest sell out for changing my mind--but everyone has to do what is best for them. & i slowly came to realize that the confidence i had in my decision meant i didn't have to care if everyone else liked my decision. it was mine, & ya know what? i'm so glad i didn't go! i hope that eventually you come to the same realization, if you haven't already.

    again, thanks for sharing. you're lovely.
