Love feels no burden,thinks nothing of trouble,attempts what is above its strength,pleads no excuse of impossibility...It is therefore able to undertake all things,and it completes many things,and warrants them to take effect,where he who does not love would faint and lie down.Love is watchful and sleeping, slumbereth not.Though weary, it is not tired;though pressed, it is not straitened;though alarmed, it is not confounded...

Jobs and Life!

I work at Desert Arroyo Phoenix, where we are also lucky enough to live! It is a beautiful resort in which South Mountain is our backyard. It's amazing + I get to walk across a bridge to get to work! It is in sort of a scary area, but we are backed up away from it all, Awhatukee is about 1 mile from us so that is where we go for everything :) Our ward is lots of fun, it is full of happy, welcoming people. Mostly made up of young couples with adorable children!
In an attic!

On a roof!
Tanner works for George Brazil. He installs AC units, and it is HARD work! Especially during the summer, he is up in 125- 135 degree attics, underneath trailor homes, and up on dangerous roofs. He gets the occasional jobs where he gets to work on the ground but all of the work is still a pain. He never complains! EVER! He comes home completly muddy and soaked some days, and he always gets fiber glass all over his body. I feel bad sitting in an air conditioned building all day knowing what he is out there doing, but hey, at least he gets a brand new work truck to drive in while working :)
