This summer

I've been really terrible about updating our blog, so here's a summary of what we did this summer
 I was incredibly domestic and made both peach, apricot and blackberry jam, peach salsa and I canned apricots and peaches. Yep, I was a busy girl, not to mention the mess the kitchen was after it was all done. That was a big job in itself! 
For a wedding gift, Lorie, Gavin's sister, gave us tickets to The Pageant of the Masters. It was this big art thing where people pose as paintings. It was really cool! The location was awesome too. It was in Laguna Beach. We went to the Newport Temple while we were there too and it was GORGEOUS!

We got a dog and named him Max. He's a pointer lab mix and a super dog.

Gavin made me pancookin. That's not how you spell it, but it's a dutch food that's a mix between a pancake and a crepe and they're super delicious; a new favorite of mine.

I finally got most of the kitchen cabinets painted white and as you can see, Max decided he'd check out the paint. It was wet.


  1. Your blog is my best discovery of the week! I'm so excited about this! Although I'd love to see more content on the site! Sounds like the desert life is good down there. It snowed this morning up here, bet you don't miss that! :) Hope to hear from you soon Emily,

  2. Can I just tell you how happy I am? I love your blog! Keep it up! I would love to read more! ; ) Love you Em!
