Hiatus is Over:

I realized this weekend that it's been almost 3 weeks since my last post!
A hiatus that I think may be my longest ever... 
The silence has been due mostly to a lack of internet at our home (thank Comcast... You have one job that we're paying you to do.)
and a little bit because summertime has decided to be absolutely wonderful this year. 
Between playing tennis with JP most days of the week, a canyon in our backyard that a big huge great dane puppy and I can't get enough of, and full-time jobs but no homework to clutter up our evenings, I think it's safe to say a majority of our time has been spent outside or adventuring with friends. Which has led to a complete lack of blogging.
But I'm back now! With renewed motivation to document the goings-on in my life with an actual camera, so stay tuned... haha. 
However for now, some iPhone pictures will have to do! 

^^^ this is the face of sheer joy. It is also the face of JP being very mean... I went off sugar and caffeine for a few weeks and this purchase occurred right in the middle of my deprivation... So cruel. 
Thoughts on being off sugar: I didn't feel a huge difference in my overall health, nor did I lose a bunch of weight. But my clothes seem to fit better and I didn't get as many headaches. I also have more steady energy (I'm still keeping caffeine intake to a minimum) through out the entire day and not as many highs/lows.

^^^ Up Rock Canyon in Provo. Does this not look like Narnia?! Oh my, the mountains are seriously incredible. 

^^^ JP and I have totally re-kindled our love for tennis (we first started hanging out 5 years ago by playing each other in tennis matches!) this summer and we love playing doubles with friends!

^^^ Me and that puppy I was talking about. He just turned 1 but weighs 150 lbs and is taller than me on his back legs! 
He's also the gentle-est giant you will ever meet, as well as a little bit lazy when it gets hot outside haha. 

 ^^^ laying in the grass on Father's day. My mother-in-law was telling me all about how spending time outside barefoot in the dirt realigns your personal magnetic field with mother earth's and I have to say, although I'm not sure how scientific that is I definitely feel happier when I've spent good quality time outside. 

^^^stargazing on my parent's trampoline. I was telling JP how it reminded me of when I used to sneak out and lay on the tramp with my boyfriends in high school (I had to sneak because we were NOT ALLOWED to go out there at night with boyfriends hahaha)
