Breathtakingly Beautiful Utah


So for the past two days, I have been staying in Sister White's house. I am like her adopted daughter! Her family is so awesome and I am so blessed that I had the chance to get to know them well. Sister White and I visited the temple and she helped me shop for more things that I may need inside the MTC. Alicia, Jenny, and I get to hang out and make cookies. I was also able to make egg rolls for dinner tonight! I am happy that it was a success. They seriously are the best and I just love them a lot! Even Emma, their sweet playful little dog!

Some of you might hate me for saying this but Utah just seriously stole my heart. I wish I can show you some pictures of how beautiful Utah really is but I am not tech savvy and I do not know how to operate the camera to the computer #loser. But even if I do have some pictures to show, it will not do justice on how beautiful Utah really is. You just have to be here and see, you know?

I am still getting used to introducing myself as Sister Garcia than saying Pauline or Smiley. One of the kids that I talked to said, "But she's a girl and she forgot her name tag, mom!" Still laughing inside when I remember it.

Tomorrow will be there real deal. They are driving me to Provo and we're going to tour BYU for a little while and then BAM! I will be in full missionary training mode. I will get my name tag (which I am really excited for) and get to meet my first ever companion! Super excited but nervous about tomorrow but I am loving it! Wish me luck!

Keeping all of you in my prayers.

Lots of love,
Sister Garcia

Dont cry for me Philadelphia ~

Did you get the title? I thought it was so fitting and funny. Laugh with me. HAHAHAHAHA. Okay that's too much. You can stop now. Kidding. So testing, testing. One, two, three. Is this really working?

If you're reading this, you probably already miss me. Am I right? It's okay. Fifteen out of ten, I already miss you too. As you're reading this, I'm leaving on a jet plane. But guess what? You won't even notice that I'm gone because you're going to write me a lot, RIGHT?! Riiiiiight.

So where does this leave us? You see, It's not you. It's me. Hahaha kidding. Well, I will write here as much as I can every week to give you the latest news about my life as a missionary. It's not going to be like "Meet the Kardashians" style though but I'll keep you guys in touch. Also so that you guys know that I'm not in some dark alley asking for ransom money. I know that the people in Argentina are great. But to put your heart at ease, I will have this blog especially for you.

In a more serious note, *cue some dramatic piano music* I just want to take this time to thank everyone who helped and supported me throughout this journey. I know I'm just starting but I wouldn't be here without all of you. I am so blessed to have my friends, family, my VPUL family, and my South Philly Branch family. I seriously am such a lucky gal to have all of you. You guys are the bomb. Like stronger than the nuclear bomb! I wouldn't have the guts or the passion to do all of these things without all of you great people supporting, mentoring, and guiding me. You guys are such great role models. I am really blessed to have all of you. Seriously.

Like I said, don't cry for me Philadelphia~ Okay? Okay. See you all again in 18 months! Peace out Philly! You've been great to me! *mic drop*

Here's a picture of some cute animals cuddling to cheer you up! 

ps: i love puns and corny jokes. Can't you tell? HAHAHA KTNXBYE
