life lately via instagram.

a picture's worth a thousand words, right?  . . .

-One of my favorite braids. so much easier with straight hair.
-Torrey took apart the entire inside of the car to put some sound-deadening material in. Sometimes he's too handy for his own good.
-Visiting Dad at work. his office is dripping with pictures and memorabilia. I made him a pencil holder when i was like in pre-school. It's been sitting on a shelf in his office for the past 18 years or so.
-Desert sunrise on the way to Utah.

-We made a short trip to see Torrey's parents in Toquerville. Six hours of napping driving. 
-I love getting a sneak peak into my husband's childhood. Twelve-year old Torrey had big hands!
-View from the emerald pools in Zion National Park. gorgeous.
-Our first married hike on an absolutely beautiful day.

-Got a new watch. Obsessed with Fossil lately.
-Made tomato sauce from scratch for the first time. I was surprised how easy it was to make (and way tastier than store-bought. try it!)
-Snickerdoodles for my primary sub.
-Our first Angel's game. I think its an Orange County requirement to attend at least one game. Torrey's work gave him free tickets that were right behind (and i mean right behind) home plate. 


We just got back from our trip to the Bay- of which we fell completely in love with. I'll be sure to tell you all about it soon :)

Happy Friday Wednesday!

I know the calendar says Wednesday, but for Norrey it's a Friday! Tomorrow we leave for June road trip #2: San Francisco!
  I am so excited to explore one of my favorite cities with the hubs. I plan on being a full-blown tourist, ohh-ing and ahh-ing at all the great sites. So when real Friday comes, I hope you have a great weekend! I know we will :)

Dad's Day



Needless to say, I love my Dad. I am thankful for the qualities of his that I see in myself.  He is kind, compassionate, hard-working, loving. He is quite literally the reason I have all of the blessings in my life now. I love that I live close to his work so that I can visit him. I love that his interest in the world around him has grown into my love for geography. I love when I talk to him about caring for others, knowing that he understands how I feel, because I got my tender heart from him. I liken his love for me and my sisters to our Heavenly Father's love for all of his children: unconditional and boundless. I hope he lives many many years, so that my children can learn to love him the way I do. He is the best dad he could be, and that's all a daughter could ever ask for.
