Snowy Blossoms

Sometimes waking up in the morning is the hardest part of my day. However, this morning, I got a phone call from my mother in-law to let me know our morning run was cancelled due to the snowy weather. The snowy weather!!! Last week I was wearing short sleeve shirts and flip flops and a week later waking up to pouring snow. Insane! Usually at 7:30 am I would head straight back to bed, but laying there I just got nervous I was going to miss it before it all melted. So I bundled up, grabbed my camera, and headed out the door. It was so beautiful and practically untouched so early in the morning I just had to go for a walk. Some of my favorite views were these snowy blossoms. Hopefully they'll hang on!



Our mailboxes. Yes, I took a picture of them. I just loved the contrast between the white snow, green grass, and picket fence.

Lovers Day

Second Valentine's Day has come and gone and it's got me wondering how life can really fly by so quickly!! Will I always feel like we were JUST married?? In some ways I hope so This year we decided to kick off our Valentine's Day by finally getting out and digging our weeds, together! A couple that digs together stays together! That's the saying right? ;) Anyways, it really was nice to know we could do something has boring as dig weeds and still consider it a great day. After cleaning and digging weeds, my parents took us out to lunch! That night we decided to stay in and cook dinner together and it was a brilliant idea. Steak, potatoes, and chocolate dipped strawberries and bananas. All while avoiding the chaos of St.George folks.

I decided to make "Our first year" book and Ethan's t-shirt quilt. My first quilt. My last quilt. Because I love him! 

Candle light dinner with my love. 

My hubby gave me flowers! I know they may be simple and what everyone gives/gets...but I loved it. I don't know a single girl who wouldn't appreciate flowers.


But the cutest thing was probably all the notes he left hidden around our place. He should totally write for hallmark.


Oh and you know he loves you when he buys you new yoga pants!  ;)

My cutesy Valentine banner! I'm kind of sad the holiday is over...I love holidays. Bring on Easter!!
