Merry Christmas, everyone. What an amazing year. Can I get an "Amen?" Here's the thing....This year has had more ups than downs. Obvs there were hard times, but you know what, the good times overshadow any tears that were shed this year. I feel like my cheeks still hurt from the blessings I received this year. Naturally, I have to document my favorite things this year. Naturally. My family....automatic, right? I just feel like I have the best. Jack & Slim. Lovely life. Like, no words. Sleeping in....zzzzzzz. A full nights sleep & an iced venti chai cures just about everything that ails 'ya.

Hello favorite video editing app. Hello! My iTunes. Ooooh take it easy. My playlist has increased by leaps and bounds. Thank you, Apple. You "rock" my world. Pun intended. Road trips. It always seems like they come at just the right time. The snacks, the music, the company. Bountiful. I used to live in West Jordan, but in March I moved to Bountiful and I love it. Cute town, great options. I think it's important to document my favorite things, because I feel like my favorite things are just blessings that are amplified, and it's fun to look back and reminisce. It's good therapy. Merry Christmas, everyone and have a great new year's eve!

This autumn season has been a dream. Lots of good reality TV, lots of good memories, and lovely weather. Summer 2014 was a dooze. I was hot and dusty. I have to admit that for the first time in my life I was looking forward to fall. October didn't disappoint either. The smells of fall bring back so many great childhood memories of North Ogden, when we lived with my Grandma. North Ogden is a charming little town. It's grown so much that I hardly recognize it. The elementary I attended was torn down a few years ago. My mom attended that elementary. I used to walk to and from school every day. I remember when the leaves would start to change that there was a different smell in the air, and I loved it. My grandma has a fairly large back yard that has an amazing view of Lewis Peak. I always know which mountain is Lewis Peak b/c there is a triangle formed out of the trees on the mountain. I made up so many stories about that triangle. In the fall the leaves would turn in the mountains and it was always so gorgeous. So gorgeous. This year as the season started to change my walks with Slim got longer. We often go up into the mountains in Bountiful so that she can be off leash and frolic as she pleases. The view is always breath taking. Never a disappointment. We have a lot of memories up there with our little family of three. This Autumn was a little different. Slim got pregnant. She had 13 puppies. They were adorable. They were extremely therapeutic, and gave the home such a loving feel to it. We've sold all of them except one. Otis. He's still with us, and it will probably stay that way. Now that the Holiday season has started we've been extremely busy. Jack's family loves to have get-togethers frequently....we recently saw Interstellar, and my mind almost exploded. The concept was amazing, yet so crazy at the same time. We're STILL talking about it. I decorated my apartment for the Christmas season....I LOVE the outcome. I'll need to post some pictures. It's such a cozy little place now. Hey folks, stay tuned. BIG news about to drop soon. BIG!!!!!! So excited to tell you all!!!!!

I've been gone for a while. Just kind of letting life happen. You know the drill. Summer flew by. It was ah-maze. I moved into a new apartment in March. It's a cozy little basement apartment that has two bedrooms. It has a couple antique brick accent walls that truly give the apartment character. It's definitely a good space. Good vibes, lots of charm, and the most important amenity? Doggy door. Vital. Imperative. Convenient. Life-saver. Jack and I are still together. Not married, but together. Happy. Progressing. Enjoying. Slim had a litter. Are you ready for this, folks.....thirteen pups. THIRTEEN! She started giving birth at 10:11 pm & didn't stop until 5:42 am. It was a long night....for her.....and me. One puppy died. That wasn't fun. I was traumatized, but it was a learning experience, so there's the silver lining in that storm cloud. I thought life with one dog was eventful. Having 13 is just as eventful and so much fun. I really don't care that I'm cleaning up after them constantly because the snuggles and their sweet faces keep me very well compensated. You know when you're really happy, like...really happy, and things seem so good so, naturally, you're on the look-out for gloomy days. That's where I'm at right now. Life is good....so, I feel a "test" coming on. Pray for me. Until it happens, I'm livin' the dream.
