How about HI!
Well my friends, a few things have changed and developed since the last time I blogged and I guess now is the time to bring you up to speed. Life is good! I feel very blessed and continue to see the Lord's hand in all aspects of my life.
Let's back up to the end of 2011... I finished another season with UVU Volleyball where we ended with the best win-loss record since we became Division I, 23-9. It was a great season, honestly the best I have had as a coach. They were the best group of girls and I'm so grateful to be around such wonderful people all of the time.
Life always slows down after season, so I was able to go home for Thanksgiving and enjoy time with my family. Then December was just typical work stuff and spending lots of time with my wonderful boyfriend, who is now my fiance!
During the fall, my dearest Daniel, who I have been dating on and off since summer for 2008, and I got back together... and as it turns out it's for the long hall. We decided that we should FINALLY take our relationship to the next step, and he propsed on December 20th. He had instructions and sweet poems on the back of puzzle pieces that were strategically placed throughout my morning routine. They eventually brought me back to my apartment where he had a path of rose petals and candles lighting the way to my room where he was kneeling with a gorgeous ring. He asked me to marry him and I said YES!!!! It is definitely a day I will never forget!
We then were able to spend Christmas break down in Vegas with my family. My brother and his family came, so I finally was able to meet my littlest nephew! It was so fun spending time with my family and having Daniel with me. He got an even better taste of what the Koelliker family is all about, and so far we haven't scared him away!
After the New Year, I made a pitstop back in Utah and then I was off to Ruckersville, Virginia to babysit my niece and nephew whilst my sister brought another baby girl into the world. I just have say, being an aunt is definitely the best thing ever! I love my little kiddies!
And after 5 days in Virginia it was back to reality... Spring season is well underway with team workouts, practice, recruiting, trying to spend every spare minute with my cute fiance, and planning our June wedding.
Life is great! I'll try to do better with more consistent blog posts, but hey, life gets busy right!
Here are some pics from the past few weeks... engagement, Christmas break, and Virginia.
