Sunshine and Summertime.

Well this summer has been a doozey. Not only has it been HOT HOT HOT here in Utah, the whole state has been pretty much on FIRE literally. Summer flew by, for those of you that didn't know Justin decided to go out and do summer sales last minute, and when I say last minute I really mean like the 11th hour. May 3rd he decided, May 5th we left for hawaii, May 12th we came home, I shot a wedding and he left that following day the 13th of May which subsequently also happend to be Mothers day. I dropped him off to the airport, I wasn't teary eyed or over come with sadness, it hadn't quite set in that he was going to be gone the entire summer and I was going to be alone. It took about 2 days, I stayed those first couple days/nights at my parents house then I returned to our condo in Pleasant Grove. While sitting in the silence I began to notice how big and empty our condo felt, looking around I didn't know what I was doing or why I was taking a survey of our condo, but as my eyes welled up with tears, and my sweet dogs tried to consol me I knew. It was no use I was already in a whirlwind of emotions at that moment, what I wanted was for Justin to come home and never ever leave again. It was May 16th. (hahaha) I flew out to Houston Texas on June 1st, Justin's room mate Grant his Wife Aubrey was going out the first of June and I wanted to go when she went so we booked our flights to visit our husbands. It was a fun time, I went out to see how Justin spent his days, where they lived and what not, it was nice I only got to stay for 6 days, Justin dropped me off at the Airport and again I wasn't sad at all, I seem to have a very distracted mind, or I just live in delusions because it never seems to phase me when we go to airports. In my mind I feel like oh i'll see them in just a little while, Ya no. I call him many times a day, in which we only speak for a few minutes because he is such a hard worker. I haven't seen him for almost 2 months now, and get gets home on FRIDAY!!!! YAY YAY YAY im so excited, The end of the summer has finally come, and I couldn't be more pleased. Ive been really busy doing my photography and working a PT job. Can't wait for him to be home and to get back into the swing of things. Here are photos from this summer.

The Worst!

So im possibly the WORST blogger in the history of bloggers. Whats new in our lives? Well We went to hawaii it was amazing! We loved visiting family and just being beach bums! We stayed at the Modern Honolulu right on the beach of Waikiki , we visited Laie and the temple was so beautiful! Here is a pic Of justin getting motsumotos! Got to see my Cousin Chantel and her beautiful family and they got us into the PCC for cheap because her husband plays the lead role in the night show, we watched it and it was seriously so fun to see him acting and dancing! Needless to say we LOVED our stay! But it was all over too quickly, Justin had earlier decided before we made our way to Hawaii that he would want to try his hand in summer sales, so he went out with our downstairs neighbors to HOUSTON TEXAS! Unlike the usual I could not go out with him due to me being a full time photographer these days so i had too many weddings to do so here I am in Utah being a solo wife at first it was a bit hard because I was so use to Justin always being so close to home and being able to come home whenever I needed, but It's really been a fine transition. I had a little weak moment when I got really sick one night I was really scared but luckily my older sister Natasha came to my resucue. Not to say that I dont miss Justin because I really do. Since hes left i've had a couple weddings engagements, bridals EVERYTHING photography related. Its been a really crazy adventure but I love it. This summer just continues to be wild, I flew down to see Justin in houston and stay for a week it was fun to see how he was doing and where he lived and how he did his sales pitch and such. IT was quite a sight to see but I loved it. Upon returning to Utah Ive done more shoots gone boating a dozen times and my Cousin amber has arrived from Australia! Shes here for a full month, she was one of my bridesmaids and shes the cutest. This past week I Traveled down to Cedar City for Volleyball Summer games! It was a rough weekend for me 10 games in 2 days my body is so shot! During the first day of games my sisters, cousin and nephew surprised me by showing up and staying the weekend with me and just last night we all decided to do a day in vegas where we went to Serendipty and walked the strip! Well thats whats been going on in my life, Im so busy and so much is going on! I may be going to california to Disneyland with my family this next week and then the week after I'll be in Cali for a wedding. Sheesh if you want an update on my life please text me haha because I feel like an awful friend for not keeping up my outer relationships! Love you all. Avi
