fall festivities

(please excuse my really long absence. i’ve been crazy busy. but here i am, finally!)

i love fall! it’s pretty great in utah with all of the amazing leaves! nothing beats the east coast during this time though….and i also really miss california during this time of year too :/ but we’ve been having fun over here! this weekend we got a few projects done and were able to do some fun fall-y things :)

^^^ so here’s the story: sunday morning i couldn’t get my contacts in because i had onion or garlic juices on my fingers so it burned really bad. after church, we went for a drive but i had a migraine and my eyes and head hurt. well since i was forced to wear my glasses, i couldn’t wear sunglasses which helps 1000 times when you have a headache. so the only thing i could do was wear my sunnies over my glasses. embarrassing. but it helped so much so i didn’t care! we were laughing pretty hard about it.

^^^we drove emigration canyon hoping to see golden trees buuut this canyon isn’t really like that….and the few aspens that there were had already lost their leaves. oh well. it was still pretty cool up there!
