Our 1st Apt

 As mentioned before we live in a tiny one bedroom apartment. It is set up to optimize space so as to fit severals rooms, of decent size, in low square footage. Our apartment has accomplished this by eliminating all hallways so all the rooms just connect to one another. One can stand in the bathroom, facing the bedroom, and see the entire apartment. Lets just say, hide-and-seek here would be quite the challenge. Even though our apartment is very small in nature we love it! It feels more and more like home everyday. All that being said we will now guide you through a virtual tour of the apt. so you can see just what we are talking about.

*As you enter through the front door this is what you see. Of course we display two elements that make us the typical Mormon family (the over sized clock and the big painting of the Boise Temple).

*Take a left from where your standing and your now in the kitchen (complete with vinyl lettering!!)

*take a right from there and you will
find yourself in the bathroom. If you turn looking straight out the door in the right edge of the picture you will be looking down the only hallway in the apartment. This hallway will lead you into the bedroom!!

*Welcome to the bedroom! There is a door to the right of the bed that will take you back into the living room.

You have now seen our entire apartment. We love it here! Thanks to everyone who helped us move, unpack, and for all those who provided all the decorations and other things that make a home a home! We are very grateful for all the support of wonderful friends and family!!

Wedding Day

Here are just a few pictures from our special day!

December, 30th 2010

On December, 30th 2010 I had the opportunity to marry my best friend in the Boise Idaho Temple. It was the perfect day. It was freezing and the wind was blowing but we were surrounded by loved ones and despite the freezing wind we were smiling and laughing in all our pictures. It was a very happy day. That day has already produced a whirlwind of other happy days. We spent a weekend in Sun Valley where Jesse mastered his skiing skills thanks to an amazing teacher. After I showed him up on the slopes he so kindly returned the favor in the ice skating rink. It was a really fun weekend and a great opportunity to laugh, learn, and grow with one another. Our fun was cut short as we returned to Rexburg to begin school and work again. It was hard to get into a routine while living out of boxes but we have since unpacked everything and have our routine down. Our tiny one bedroom apartment is starting to look and feel more like home. We are excited we have a place to call home, a place where we can be together. We have been truly blessed and are looking forward to the many wonderful experience we will continue to have together.
