14 years!

Mike and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary last weekend. We went to downtown Salt Lake City for a couple days and played. It was a lot of fun! We went shopping, walked around Temple Square, ate at some awesome new restaurants and stayed at a really fun hotel. The one thing that surprised me and Mike was that everyone kept telling us how amazing it was that we were still together after 14 years, and we still like each other! We are definitely not perfect but I am constantly grateful that I chose to marry Mike. We have been through a lot together. We have pulled together in hard times instead of pulling apart. He puts up with a lot from me! He spoils me rotten. I am looking forward to many more years with him!

Logan Temple...

We had a really fun trip to my hometown of Logan for Thanksgiving. My mom and I took our cameras to the temple. It was a beautiful but extremely cold day! I just love this temple! They have done a lot of outside remodeling and they have done some really beautiful landscaping. I also thought it may be fun to submit some of the photos to Helping in The Vineyard, which is a new website of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is a website with some unique and really cool service opportunities! They are having their first ever photo contest. If you "like" them here on Facebook you can follow the contest and learn about some fun ways to serve others! We'll see what happens! Hope your holiday was wonderful!

I love this...

I think a lot about the reasons that I enjoy photography. I am an amateur still, I have tons to learn. I think the reason I love taking photos so much is that I get to spend time with awesome people, whether it is my family or good friends. I love being with people and trying to make them feel good about themselves. I love hearing their stories and their life experiences. I learn so much...even about my closest friends. I love trying to bring out the best in them.

Last weekend I got to spend time with this awesome family! We are fairly new friends and I love getting to know them! They are so much fun! They are amazing! And, of course to make it totally unfair, they are gorgeous! The day was so gorgeous! It looks like fall is really upon us and winter is quickly coming! Hope you enjoy!
















Ok, I had to add this for Mike...slooowwwly bring your fist up under your chin...think Napoleon Dynamite...

homemade tomato sauce...

We have had an abundance of yummy tomatoes this year thanks to my hubby and his awesome gardening skills! I just didn't have it in me to bottle tomatoes this year however. So my good friend Angie taught me how to make my own tomato sauce to put in the freezer! It is SOOOO yummy and makes your house smell like HEAVEN!!! I am loving our garden!!! Ya, we are having the world's best spaghetti for dinner tonight...

good thing they're cute...

We had a fun night with some friends a few days ago! Here are a few pics. I wanted to get some cute ones of my boys since I really haven't taken any good ones of them in a while. My good friend Mark Anderson took the last two pictures for me. He did a great job! The last one is probably one of my absolute favorite pictures of my family! Nice job Mark! It was a nice night! Perfect fall weather! I will share more of their darling family soon! We love you guys!

Our amazing garden...

No way our garden is this AWESOME! We finally started our garden again since we moved and had a baby and many other things... It took us a few years but we are back in business! We can't believe how much we have produced this year! Our garden has never produced this much! Can't wait to plant even more for next year!





...and fabulous fresh salsa all the time!
