Hi loves!

As per usual things have been busy busy busy over here. As busy as I feel my daily life is, I still feel like there is so much more I want and need to do. There really needs to be more hours in the day, don’t you agree?
I did want to pop in, say hello, and share some recent happenings.

I told you all that Matt and I recently went back to Indiana to have a wedding shower with some friends and family that were not able to make it out to Arizona for the wedding.

It seemed just like the wedding, too many people, not enough time, but it was so wonderful to see and connect with friends and family we haven’t seen in awhile.

Our adventure started at the new airport shuttle. It’s a new air tram and Matt and I were pretty excited about it.

I mean look at that face. Clearly excited.

When we got to the airport we had our traditional pre-flight drink

We always have one, mainly because we are those people that get to the airport two hours early and always have some extra time to kill.

I usually get a mimosa since our flights are typically pretty early, but we took a little bit of a later flight, so I got a delicious looking cocktail.

It was vodka mixed with pink lemonade, there may have been something else in it, but I don’t remember. Regardless, it was delicious.

We soon were in Indiana and the craziness began!

We flew in Friday and the shower wasn’t until Sunday. My sister was actually staying at my parent’s as well, as they were having work done on their roof, so they didn’t want to be around all the loud noises with the kids. It was so much fun having us all in the house and it meant extra time for Matt and I with our nieces!

Saturday my sister had plans to take the girls to the zoo and asked if we wanted to tag along. Um, yes please! 1. I love the zoo and 2. more time with my sister and nieces!

Because I honestly can’t get enough of these cuties!

It was a hot one, so we lasted as long as we could. Honestly I think the adults were worn out before the kids were!

The next day was the shower and it was a busy one, but so much fun!

I have very few friends who I keep in close contact with from back home, but those are the best ones and man did I miss them!

So as mentioned, the shower was so much fun, but again I really wish I had more time to catch up with friends and family, but at the same time was so grateful for the time I did have. We were so humbled with not only all the people who attended, but also the generosity. Everyone was so great in helping make the day run smooth and one thing to note was my neighbors (who I really do not know well) not only made delicious mason jar desserts, but made us crafty photo frames using our wedding photographs.

I am always in awe of those who are super crafty as I wish I was.  The photo frames she made for us are absolutely beautiful and we are so excited to show case them in our home.

And as quickly as we came it was time to go home. That morning Matt and I were able to escape away for breakfast together.  My dad had to work and my mom was in operation clean up mode, but it was actually nice for Matt and I to spend some quiet time together.  It also reminded me a few reasons why I miss Indiana. It is insanely hot here in Arizona and it was so nice to be able to sit on a patio, surrounded by trees and enjoy a quiet breakfast.

The food was also amazing.

We went to a local breakfast place and both started with fresh squeezed orange juice. I got the most amazing biscuits and gravy and even though they did not photograph well, they were absolutely phenomenal. The part that made them extra amazing was they toasted the biscuits before topping them with gravy. Life changing.  Matt got a mexican potato skillet that was also delicious. Of course I stole a few bites. Home cooking at it’s finest!

Too soon it was time to pack up and head to the airport. And as per usual Matt and I were incredibly early, so you guessed it. A pre-flight drink was had.

Upon returning home there was something else to celebrate, Matt and I’s 3 month anniversary. Yes we’re still celebrating the months.  Really just a reason for us to go out to dinner.

And to get flowers.

Side Story: I had to laugh. Matt walked in on me taking a selfie with the flowers, proceeding to make fun of me, which proceeded to this photo session…

I love us…

All three months we have been celebrating with the same dinner.

Sushi.

And guess who isn’t complaining.

When we do celebratory dinners we typically go all out.

We started with fried gyoza and typically I am not a huge fan, but these were absolutely delicious.

Next was an abundance of sushi.

A mix of sashimi and sushi rolls.

But the show stealer for this meal was the crunchy eel roll.

Again, not typically a fan of the fried rolls, but I’m convinced anything covered in eel sauce is delicious.

And it was.

So overall even though incredibly busy, we’ve had an amazing couple of weeks. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people and continuously are reminded of all the love we have in our lives.

♥ ♥ ♥

What are you thankful for in your life right now?

I am thankful for all the love I have in my life. It was so amazing to go home and be surrounded by family love and then also to come home to this love…
