wish i were here

Driftwood Beach. Waldport, Oregon. Favorite place in the world.
despite my attempts to make this place look warm, it's actually freezing

Once upon an April 11th day, Josh and I were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple.

We were lucky enough to have one of my favorite friends, Becca, take pictures of us to help remember such a special occasion.Lucky is an understatement! I love every photo she took. Even Josh's bug-eyed ones. Which are most of them.

back in the hood, Arctic Circle style

taking a picture of myself while pretending not to take a picture of myself

I went to Arctic Circle this last saturday.
the last time I graced AC with my presence I ordered a mushroom swiss burger, only to be disappointed by a soggy bun, minimal toppings and few shrooms. i had no choice but to boycott.

But when you ask your teary-eyed little sister what will make her feel better, and she tells you all she wants in the whole world is a watermelon flavor burst ice cream cone, it would be a heartless thing to deny her all because AC commits hamburger homicide.

So I caved. I regret nothing! Look what it turned those teary eyes into:

I love my little sis.

i love family picture day

Because I get to play with my pretty sisters

and because they make me wear a bright green t-shirt.

I am grateful for my super phone, which allows me to blog from anywhere there is service. That means next time I vacation I will spend it blogging. Yay

same house, different season

I drive slow to take in the landscape.
