After the never ending winter, we relished in the arrival of Spring. I headed to Idaho at the beginning of June to finish my student teaching so Alex and I spent every second together before we would be apart for 3 months.
We made sure to stop at Walden Pond before I left of the summer. It immediately became one of our favorite places in all of Massachusetts.

Several stakes in the area held a conference for women in the New England area called Let Your Light Shine. Stephanie Nielsen from the NieNie blogs was a keynote speaker. Elder Jeffery R. Holland also surprised everyone by stopping by and addressing us. The rest of the day was full of classes and activities.

Alex and I also went to the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) to see the Leonardo di Vinci exhibit. We also saw the Hokusai exhibit and were blown away by both.
