{Top Five} Friday

{Top Five} Things About Our Time In Idaho:
1. Getting engaged in the most picturesque of locations.
Ashton, Idaho
2. Living in an enchanted, summertime forest.
do you remember this story?
do you see the fairy?
 3. Experiencing real Fall colors.
and dying my hair to match.
4. {Less than 3 hour} roadtrips with friends
Jackson Hole, Wyoming with Luke, Jack, and Jenny
Lava Hot Springs, Idaho with Jack and Jenny
5. Jack & Jenny
Have you ever met someone who is basically your soul mate of a friend? 
That's what happened when I met Jenny; which is pretty lucky in itself,
but how 'bout when the fact that her husband, Jack, also happens to be Marcus's soul mate friend?
That, sweet readers, is much more than luck--it's destiny, I'm convinced. 

It was winter, and I was hating life in Idaho, and then Old Money and hours of band practice came into existence and that meant Jenny and I were going to be seeing a lot more of each other, whether we liked it or not. 
Turns out, we did.
We liked it A LOT!
Now, winter is coming to a close, and our time in Idaho is VERY limited and I hate to go.
I'm going to miss them too much.
Finding the perfect pair is harder than it looks.
Turns out this frozen wasteland isn't as bad as I thought...
I guess we'll be taking lots of roadtrips.

Pin It!


  1. Wow, those pictures are amaaaaazing.. Seriously.
    And I have always wanted to go to Jackson Hole, but its more like a double digit road trip for me.

    Love this sweet post.

  2. I know it isn't the greatest place...but I really have come to love and appreciate Rexburg.

  3. Love your pictures! I'm going to Jackson Hole in May - what do I need to see/do?

    Really gorgeous there!

  6. I've been sitting here for the past 5 minutes trying to think of a clever way to say: I love your style and I think you're beautiful. But nothing is coming to me, so we'll just stick with that. I love your style! You're beautiful!-- Seriously.


  7. These pictures are beautiful! Love the unicorn marionette!

  8. OHHHHHHHHHHHH my goodness. That picture of the sun and you looking over the fense just took my breath away. aka my face went purple because i actually stopped breathing. It should be a shot in a Disney movie or a magical-prefection-of-a-love-story movie. Just sayin.

  9. every period of our lives, wherever it might be, even if it was hard at the beginning, keeps a warm and special place in our hearts once we have to leave :)

  10. Ha! I totally didn't know you were in Idaho!! I live here too!! I don't know why this thrills me so much -- maybe because then I don't feel like I'm the only one here. :P


  11. soulmate friends are the best. it's never fun to leave that behind. it's one reason i love the internet so much - to keep in touch with some of my old favorite friends.

  12. I have the same love/hate relationship with Utah. Every winter I wonder what the heck I am still doing living here and in the summer and fall I am in heaven. Oh well.

    LOVE the little fishing pictures! Darling!!!

  13. I just discovered your blog and perused through your entries. I've decided that..

    a) you are so adorable
    b) i love your writing style
    c) i'm now following your blog

    xx, Brittni

  15. I served part of my mission in Idaho Falls and in the Bear Lake area. Beautiful, but very cold for a girl from Tennessee! Thanks for the photos...they brought back wonderful memories.

  16. Idaho.. oh my little home land.. its picture perfect and often underrated..

  17. Idaho certainly is gorgeous.

  18. Okay, all of these pictures are so magical! And I love that blue dress! It screams summer. I think I need to search the internet for something similar. ;)
