Enjoy the Journey: Top 10 Moments in My Life

Enjoy the Journey
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away.

I am kinda a sucker for inspirational quotes.  I have about 20 plaques with quotes I love hanging in my home and a box full of them in the garage for the day when I have more wall space to hang them all.  This particular quote is one of my favorites and the one that has inspired today's 10 Things post

So here are the Top 10 Things (Moments) that have taken my breath away:

Reading the Scriptures for the first time, gaining a testimony of Christ and getting baptized with the support of my friends and family.

{how hot is that jump suit--right!}

{Auntie Debbie, my Momma, me, Elder Whearly, Grandma Janice}

The day the man of my dreams proposed to me.

The day I graduated college at USC, as my family always hoped for me {hence picture of me at age 3 in a USC cheerleader uniform}.

The day I married the man of my dreams for time and all eternity. 

{gotta love the apple cider}

The day I completed my first Century
{100 mile bike ride...YES, I said 100 miles}.

The day I found out we would be having a baby boy.

The day our little boy entered this world and I looked into his eyes for the first time. 

The day of Baby W's blessing, with all my family and friends there to support us, as they always do. 

The day I completed my first sporting event after giving birth--and my little man was waiting for me at the finish line.

The day we took our little family across the world to a magical place called England--the home of our family's ancestors.

After completing this post I couldn't help but feel overwhelming gratitude for the life I've been given.  No, it hasn't always been glorious, but is has ALLways been worth it, worth having these moments.

Now I challenge you to come up with your Top 10 Moments that have taken your breath away. 

Feel free to leave a link to your Top 10 post in the comments section if you choose to accept this challenge, or you can just leave a comment describing a special moment--I would love to see the moments that have inspired your life!

1. My wedding

8. The honeymoon in Victoria, Whistler, and Vancouver...everything about it.
9. My service trip to Nicaragua - witnessing poverty for my first time changed the way I see everything

By the way, you look AMAZING to have just had a baby. I looked stoned out of my mind right after my lil' man arrived. Haha.

We share some of the same top moments! :) I'm also a convert and consider my baptism day as one of the happiest days of life. I will celebrate my 5 year "baptism birthday" this summer, August 13th. I wish there was a way to express the genuine joy that the gospel brings into my life. Here's a little snippet of my happiness:

Hi Ashley!

I'm not sure if you remember me; I'm Wendy Homan's oldest daughter Amanda from church. Anyways - I don't remember how I found your blog but I just have to tell you how adorable you and your little family are and I can't believe how similar we are! I love your blog and am definitely going to be a follower :).

What an inspiring post....I might actually borrow this idea and do a post like this for myself. I like to write these moments down but to publish it and view it gives such an overwhelming feeling. I truly enjoyed your post.
