there is beauty all around...

Eric and I have been blessed to live in towns that are surrounded with natural beauty. We've also been very lucky to go on some amazing vacations and see some gorgeous parts of the world!

Brian Head Resort, Utah
Arches National Park, Utah
We have met and made so many friends through our short, almost 5 years of marriage. We are so happy that we get to see so much beauty with our friends and family! Through our ups and downs we've never stopped exploring our surroundings. In fact, enjoying fresh air and appreciating this beautiful earth usually turns the bad times into good times :)

Zion National Park, Utah
Mesa Verde Nation Park, Colorado 
Las Vegas, Nevada
The best part about living in such a beautiful world? We have a beautiful daughter that we are so eager to take exploring! We can't wait to show her new places and teach her to appreciate each moment and take in all the beauty we are blessed with.

 Salt Lake City, Utah
 Cabo, Mexico
I guess I'm trying to say that I am SO thankful God gave us this beautiful earth to live on! I've tried to enjoy it as much as possible, but we are definitely going to appreciate the beauty a lot more because we get to teach Mia all about it! Our tiny baby is already teaching me how to appreciate life so much more :)
