Now, if you've made it to this point (super impressed if you did!), I know you may have seen a lot of these pictures already from my Instagram. But here are some other unpictured highlights of the past few months: 

GRAD SCHOOL -- As hard as it was to study this summer, I loved clinic and my classes. I worked with amazing clients and I was so happy to be at school each day. Nothing greater than the feeling I'd have every day I walked into my building or the clinic and knowing it is exactly where I need to be. 

SUMMER IN SEATTLE -- Seriously, nothing is dreamier than this city in the summer. It was gorgeous, as you saw in some pictures. The temperature was between 70-80 (with the exception of a few hot, hot, hot HUMID days) and the sun wouldn't go down until 10! It was incredibly beautiful all summer and hardly rained! 

CHURCH--Institute every Wednesday night has been amazing and I've enjoyed getting to learn from my peers each week. It's often been the highlight of my week along with church every Sunday. I don't know how I got so lucky to end up in the ward I did, but I'm always so impressed by the strength of the members of our ward and the goodness they share with me and all those around them. Attending the Temple almost every week has been a huge source of strength to me while living in Seattle and I am very grateful I have a Temple so close! 

BARRE/RUNNING--Loved my barre class just five minutes from my house and running through neighborhoods all summer. I was training for a half marathon this month, but two weeks ago, I broke my big toe (I know, SO LAME) and it's fractured in a few places...so no go on the half marathon. :( However, I'm grateful I have been so active this summer! Our bodies are wonderful gifts from our Heavenly Father.  

OTHER -- June 16,  Sea Fair (with the Blue Angels flying over Lake Washington and being able to walk out on I-90 to watch the planes), WAYSAC dance, outdoor movies, hanging out with the girls in my program all the time, Hot Cakes, canoeing through the Arboretum, hearing the Compline choir on Sunday nights, roommate dinners, going to parks and beaches, etc. 

Overall, it's been a fabulous summer and as I'm approaching my Seattle-versary (can you believe it's been a year?!), I can't wait to see what future adventures Seattle has in store for me! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life and to have all of these experiences.


  1. you are just so beautiful. seattle looks like a dream.

  2. This makes me want to go to Seattle! I lived there when I was little and I've never been back. Definitely a must!


Thanks for making my day!
