"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Day 11- Blast from the Past

Today I am grateful that I take the time to preserve moments from my life.

In the 6th grade we made time capsules and canned them in #10 cans.  I opened mine several years ago, but then put it away.  I rediscovered it again today!  Some people took more time planning their items; mine just came from my desk at school.  There were still some awesome treasures inside like notes from friends, a few short books I had written, and the crowning jewel- a letter to myself!

The letter contains some of my favorite things, favorite friends, and LIES!  Why in the world I would write lies to myself is beyond me.  Bless my 6th grade soul.  Here is what it says (all capitalizations, spelling, and underlining are as written):


I HATE ELEMENTRY!!!  I have 2 more weeks of school left.  I can't wait to get to Jr. High!  I hace quite a few friends they are:  Katy, Jamie, Haley, Whitnie, Kiersten, Sami, Tobey, Krista, Ben, Tom, Taylor, Steve, Matt Farr, Wendy, Misha, and lots more I just can't name them all.  My Very best friend is Lyndsay Harding.

I just barely went into Young Womens in church.  We're going to Brighton LDS Camp for Girls Camp this year.

My favorite Singer is Mariah Carey.  These are my top ten favorite songs.

Always Be My Baby #1
Crossroads #2
Long ago #3
Young & Proud #4
Because You Loved Me #5
Gangsta's Paradise #6
Fantasy #7
Dreamlover #8
One Sweet Day #9
Forever #10

J.T.T. on Home Improvement, is very popular right now.  He is VERY fine.  My boyfriend's name is Shad.  He lives up in Island Park, by our cabin.  He looks sort of like J.T.T. except with short hair, and brightblue eyes.  He's Just as fine as J.T.T., almost.

Why don't I describe myself, I'm 5 ft. tall, I have brown eyes, and I consider myself, cool, beutiful, and friendly.  My love is my rabits.  Their names are Daisy, and Rosie.  I used to have two other rabbits named Honey, and Shelbe, but they got killed by a dog.  My har is about 4 inches past my shoulders, and I can't get my ears peirced until I'm 16.  I want to be a singer when I grow up, and write books in my spare time. I want to have 3 kids, 2 girls, and 1 boy, the girls names are Dawn, and Kennedy, and my boys name Craigen.  I have to go so farewell!!!!


p.s. The year is 1996!

It's gold, Jerry.  Gold!

And to set the record straight- I never had a boyfriend named Shad.  Lies!!!


  1. I LOVE IT! and way to know that you would have 2 boys and 1 girl... what the?!?

  2. This is precious Amylee - thanks for sharing.

  3. I have loved reading all of your thankful entries. I had to pause here because I swear I was reading my own letter. Also, I think I had a made-up boyfriend that lived in Payson. He was almost as fine as JTT :)
