The one you've been waiting for.

{shirt: Forever 21; cardigan: DownEast Basics; ring: Forever 21}

Today was a beautiful day in Mesatown. I got to wear a cardigan for the first time!
But that's not what this post is about.

For almost 8 months now, I have been deeply interested in a book.
It was something I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would read.
But one day, on a large rock in a forest, I had an experience that I could never forget.
I could not let go of that small whisper.
So, against everything I had ever believed, I read.

After I read, I spoke. I learned. I cried.
I felt unbelievable happiness, calmness, and comfort.
I believed.

On September 24th, 2011, I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It's something I've been scared to talk about on my blog because of the way people treated me when they found out. But I'm not scared anymore.
I know I'm the same person, the same Brittany; I'm just much happier than I ever have been!
I know I belong.
