My name is Eliza Meeks and I’m a woman trying to make my way through the world and figure everything out. I married to the world’s best man, Kyle, on August 14, 2010. He supports me in all my endeavors, and I may tease him sometimes (read: a lot), but I really and truly love him. I graduated in Art History from Brigham Young University in April 2012. We currently have a little girl, who was born July 16, 2012, and a little boy who was born May 3, 2014.
I sew, garden, appreciate art, cook, and occasionally decorate cakes. I’m one of those people that is always cold no matter what is going on, and is probably wearing more layers of clothing than you are. I love being warm, the summer, snow capped mountain, and I’ve only managed to enjoy one long walk on the beach. Kyle and I had gone down to visit his family shortly after we got engaged, and he had been going on for months about how beautiful sunsets on the beaches of California are. So we dutifully went down to the beach one day, and it was completely overcast and dreary. I was cold, too. The only reason we knew the sun was going down was because it was getting darker. But we were engaged and in love, so we trundled on and had ourselves a marvelous time anyways.
I want to get the most out of life, but I also want to remember it. As a historian, I know the value of personal written histories. I want to have a record of my life, and of myself, or who I am. I want it so that I can look back at how I’ve changed, and so that I can share it with my children, and their children, and perhaps it will be shared with their children after I have passed away. Your family will remember you in the pages of their histories, and in the lessons of the heart. I’d like to pass on what I learn and who I am to as many of my generations as will read this after me.
