Golden Mountain Perfection

Fall leaves, golden sun, a tinsy bit of snow… Amber and I lucked out with all of the perfect ingredients to mess around with for a fun fall photo play-day.

(Just to clarify, snow is only permissible right now to make things look pretty. Otherwise, it is entirely unacceptable. And now that we’re done taking pictures, it should go away.)

Amber got an awesome camera on her birthday, so we’d been wanting to get out on a photo adventure together and I finally made it down to Provo with my camera the other weekend. It was the perfect fall day, so her roomie Erin was wise to tag along. Just see for yourself!


See right there? That is what we call golden fall perfection. It’s a scientific term.

It needed to be played in.


And that included bubbles. Look at what a graceful team they make.

It was the perfect opportunity for Amber to put her new camera to good use!

There was also lots of good roommate bonding…


but the spiders weren’t quite as friendly looking. (Maybe we should have given them more of a chance?)

But still, with the somehow simultaneously dusty-yet-muddy roads leading us to fresh air, it was quite lovely.

The whole bunch, for those with time to waste (or those who are avoiding doing more productive things):

And for Amber’s take on things, you can check her blog out.


And a Happy Halloween Season to you!

Burritos and General Conference Happiness

It’s General conference season, and it has brought my beloved mission companion Airi back to Utah! You wouldn’t think she lives thousands of miles away in Okinawa since I’ve seen her twice already in the few months we’ve been home.

She’d been planning on coming here for a work conference and General Conference with her mom since back when we were still serving together in Sapporo. At the time I didn’t know that I would be here too, so it worked out fantastically!

We tried to get in to conference in the standby line with her mom and two friends from Japan since they only have translation in the actual conference center and we kind of made it in. As in we sat on couches in the lobby. But they got translation, so it was all good. Afterwards we ate delicious burritos from a taco cart. Yep.

We also had a couple of mission reunions, so it was great to get to hang out with everyone again!


I love conference season. There are only good feelings! Tomorrow I’m going to snuggle into my couch and watch this online (so convenient):

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!
