Sunset in Fira
All the guidebooks say the sunset is best in Oia, but as far as we could tell the sunset was equally fantastic in Fira. And no crowds! We had the entire rooftop to ourselves (aside from one pooping cat) for a totally romantic Santorini sunset!
 
 
It was definitely the perfect way to end our time in the Greek Isles.

 

3 Years and Going Strong

On August 14, Chris and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.

3 whole years ago, Chris and I knelt across from each other in the Las Vegas LDS Temple and were sealed in marriage for time and all eternity.

Sometimes that still blows my mind.

It blows my mind that I found such an amazing man to share forever with, and it blows my mind that he picked me too. And that he still picks me every single day, especially when I'm a less-than-perfect wife :) These three years have been wonderful, full of joy, full of challenges, and most of all full of adventure! Looking back on all that we've shared together so far, I'm all the more excited for the rest of our lives and beyond!

I love you Chris!

A Wonderful Trip Home

I know you’ve all been just DYING to see this post. I mean…who doesn’t LOVE someone else’s extended family vacation photos??? Nobody, that’s who! I would be terrible if I kept you waiting any longer, so without further ado…here’s just a quick photo summary of our trip home this summer!!!! Yaaaaay!!!!

2 weeks in Utah and 2 weeks in Vegas resulted in about 5 bajillion photos. I know…I know…you want to see ALL of them… but for now these are just some of the highlights (mostly from Instagram and my slowly dying point-&-shoot.) I’ll probably end up posting more detailed posts as the more awesome photos from Chris’ swanky work camera get edited. Maybe. :)
