Last weekend we ventured to the Teton National Park with Jason's side of the family and had a blast! We went white water rafting, hiked the Jenny Lake trial, had a run in with a bear, ate like kings and indulged our sweet tooths with the most delicious huckleberry ice cream I've ever had. It was a quick weekend getaway but was jam packed with tons of fun and the best company. Nothing beats a good summer adventure. And let me tell you, this one was really good.

Meet Harrison. I started nannying this little guy back in June. He has stolen my heart! He is the happiest most easy going baby. He is all smiles and has the sweetest little personality. I wake up every morning looking forward to going to work and getting to spend the whole day with him. He is nearly 8 months old and most definitely has me wrapped around his little finger. This is the first time in my 7 years of being a nanny that I've only taken care of just one child. It is so much fun! I love being able to devote all my time and attention to just one kid.

Hello there! It's been awhile since I've last blogged. 5 months almost. Holy Moly. Back in February our Spokane house was robbed and my computer along with all my pictures (which were not backed up on a hard drive) was stolen. Saddest thing ever. I cried for days. So it's been hard to blog without a device or visuals. (Blogs without pictures are boring). It wasn't until today that I realized there's a blogger app! (There's an app for that!)
So here I am. On my phone (cuz we're too broke to buy me a new computer), ready to try this whole blogging thing again.
Jason graduated in May from law school. We've since moved to Salt Lake City where he and his friend plan to start a law practice together. (They take the bar in 10 days! Gah!) We found the cutest little rental and are really excited to be living in such a great city.
One of the best things about Salt Lake in the summer time is the Twilight Concert Series. It happens every Thursday evening and awesome bands come play in Pioneer Park for only $5 bucks! It use to be free but now they've put a small price on it to keep the riffraff out (aka smelly homeless people). It is such a blast! Last night was the first show and we saw Belle and Sebastian. Next week The Flaming Lips will play and I think Jason might pop a gasket with excitement he's that stoked to see them. I'm most excited about Ludacris! Ha. He's playing the second week in August and I am so. so. excited. If you know me at all then you know I've got a special place in my heart for rap music. ;) I've been listening to Luda since junior high school and I can't wait to sing along with all those songs I've had memorized for years.
It's great to be back in Utah. I never thought I'd say that! But this place has it all. Jason and I like to call it a big little city. It progressive, cultural and up and coming.
Stayed tuned ya'll. Now that I've downloaded that app, I'm making a blogging come back!

Here are a few pictures that my beautiful aunt took of Jason and I in our home on Sunday afternoon.
I quite possibly am the most nostalgic person you'll ever meet, so documenting our first home together was pretty important to me. I'm excited to look back on these pictures some day and remember the life we shared in our little yellow retro house. Our time here is quickly approaching its end and my heart is breaking a little at the thought of saying goodbye. This farewell will surely be bittersweet. We still have two months before we pack up and head out. I plan on cherishing these last days. That means, slowing down and being aware of these special moments that we are soon leaving behind.
