1 Year Anniversary

May 29th a year ago Kenyon and I were married at his home ward in Riverton! It's been quite a crazy first year but I'm still in love with him! To celebrate our new friends Toby and Sandra who work for a jeep excursion company got us a free jeep tour! It was way fun but way dusty and bumpy! Later that night we went to dinner with our 2 married couple friends and came back to the apartment for ice cream!

I'm so happy I married Kenyon and I can't wait till we're sealed when we get back from Alaska! The first picture I'm posting is my favorite picture from our wedding! We were just soooooo tired as everyone whose been married is after their day of pictures and festivities and I want to have it framed someday 'cause I LOVE IT!

These 2 are from the excursion:

The Jeeps!

My man and I!

I have a few more pictures that I'll post at a later time but for the excursion we went on a jeep ride along old logging trails, then canoed to a place where we ate lunch and went a nature hike, then more jeeping to this really pretty overlook! It was a lot of fun!

Tide Pooling!

So on Friday the 28th we decided to go look at tide pools with some of our new friends Don and Heather and this is from our adventure!

Starfish! The starfish here are soooo cool! I mean I'm sure they're cool elsewhere but I've never seen them so I think they're cool!

This one had 6 legs and was a little baby one!

Orange one and multi-legged one!

My goofy husband!

We all decided to try the local seafood!...JK!

This might be a long one...

Ok so for the past few days I've been in somewhat of a funk. I think it's a combination of homesickness, exhaustion, various other little things.

1. Homesickness: I never thought I'd be missing Utah be I really am! I feel like I'm missing out on everything! Don't get me wrong I'm incredibly grateful for this opportunity Kenyon and I have been given but I'm missing the little things! I'm missing seeing our nieces and nephews grow and play, I'm missing my friends babies being born (SARAH CARR), I'm missing being with family and friends! It sounds like I'm complaining but I really am blessed to be here and making money!

2. Exhaustion: I have never worked so much! I'm getting 40 hours a week plus! It's great because we'll be making lots of money which is the reason we came all the way up here but I'm sooooo tired at the end of the day! All I want to do is sleep when I get home!

3. Various Other Little Things: This is one of the biggest reasons I think I'm in the funk that I'm in. Kenyon and I have chatted and we've decided to wait before we keep trying to get pregnant (for those who don't know I was pregnant but miscarried in March) and this has been a bit hard on me. It seems that everyone around me either is pregnant or has just had their baby. This is awesome and I feel really happy and excited for the previously mentioned people but every time I hear about it I get teary eyed. I keep thinking from time to time about the baby I would have had and how far along I would be or what it would look like. I hope that doesn't sound crazy. Everyone keeps telling me that it's just not my time or it'll come but for some reason it just doesn't help me. I've been praying about it but I just can't shake this feeling. I just think I need to find something to keep my mind off of it.

I hope this post didn't sound complainy or whiney but it's nice to have an outlet to get things off of my chest.

On a different note I think I'm getting the hang of this blog stuff! I'm really liking it so far!

Thanks for listening!
