From the beginning of our relationship Jaron always said he wanted to get a dog and I always said it would never happen. It was one of those things that we both secretly thought we would change the other person's mind about once we were married. Deep, deep, DEEP down I considered getting one if … Continue reading Our little Elle-belle
Last year we tried going to California but ended up going to Florida instead. This year we were finally able to make our way to Disneyland. We have never been to California together and have always wanted to make a little getaway there. So when Jaron had spring break around my birthday, the stars aligned. … Continue reading Happy spring birthday break
I LOVE making my own wreaths. I have never purchased one pre-made because it is way cheaper and way more fun to make your own. I've always wanted to blog them, but I often forget to take pictures until I'm done. Plus, I usually make them up as I go! So, for the first time … Continue reading DIY Winter Wreath
Christmas is the BEST time of the year. I just love the magic that comes from holiday shopping, Christmas movies, Elvis' Christmas CD's, late nights snuggled up in blankets, the lights on the tree and consuming WAY too much hot chocolate.

Jaron's cousins have a cabin by the lake and have invited us there the past two years. 🙂 This year we went over Labor Day weekend and the whole family was able to come! We spent the weekend playing … Continue reading Bear Lake // Labor Day Weekend
This past summer we were finally able to move closer to our families. We are both really close to our family so it's been hard on us to live 45 minutes away. Since we got married, Provo is the only place we've lived. So saying goodbye to our first home was bittersweet. But mostly sweet. … Continue reading Saying goodbye to Provo
My description of college goes like this: You start at the base of a large mountain, 4 years of classes and experiences to go. It seems so far away, but you're excited to start a new chapter. You start climbing and it is tougher than you expected, but manageable. Eventually you reach a point where … Continue reading Graduation, no small mountain.
Jaron and I had the opportunity of volunteering inside the Provo City Center Temple for the open house last January. We were super excited to live so close to the new Provo Temple when we first moved to our second apartment. I have been able to see this temple undergo renovations throughout my whole college … Continue reading Provo City Center Temple
