This is life.

I feel like I spent my entire life {thus far} waiting for the next big event. In elementary school, I couldn't wait to get into that J-High. Then High School was waiting. Graduation. College. College Graduation. Marriage. Moving to a new city. Finding the best job in the world. And suddenly I have found myself feeling like I'm not sure what the next step is. Suddenly I find myself in this place where life is life. I'm not eagerly anticipating the next step. I'm ready to just enjoy. 

This is life.

I wake up early. 
I go to work. 
I see the sweetest most amazing patients in the entire world. 
(more to come on that in the near future) 
I come home to my husby. 
We go to the gym
(sometimes).
We eat dinner. 
We watch TV. 
We go to bed. 

And you know what? I love it. I love this routine. I love this life. We are happy in our tiny little basement apartment. We are happy as just the two of us. We have been so blessed in so many ways since we have started our lives together. Physically, mentally, financially, and any other ally you can think of. Of course, life isn't perfect and we, of course, have our struggles, but life is just so so good!

Now completely contradicting the fact that I stated more than once that I am not eagerly anticipating the next step... we ARE eagerly anticipating our vacation to Puerto Rico in May. We decided that this time in life is the time to both save money and spend money, and are trying hard to do both. Returning to Cody's mission is something we have both wanted to do since the day he got home, or maybe the day he got his mission call? Regardless, we are beyond thrilled at the opportunity to spend a week there. I imagine travelling will be much harder once we have littles following us around so we figured we best get rid of our travel itch before there are mini me's in the picture.


The past month has been eventful. We were able to drive to SLC for Easter. Most of my family was there, so that was marvellous. I got to see my favorite Owen Bear! Naturally he was the highlight of the weekend.
All I had to do was put my lips towards his mouth and he gave the best slobbery open mouth kisses you can ever imagine.  He loves me.


We also attended the Sunday Afternoon session of General Conference.  I haven't been to conference for years and years, so I was so excited! Also, it was SO warm outside.

Cody hates this photo but it's the only one we took. Oops.

This past weekend was my bestie's wedding! Congrats to Steph and Bobby. It was just the perfect day. Everything was so chill, and laid back, and easy going. Just like Steph. Despite the freezing cold wind, nothing could have made it a better day. 
Typical Karlee Fry and Jane photo. Love this girl!

I promise we let Steph and Bobby cut into it first.

Unfortunately Kate was stuck in Texas and unable to come, so we facetimed her between the family dinner and the reception! 
Just look at how perfect her little guy is!


*I'll have to post a picture of the beautiful bride once she has her photos back from the photographer. :)


Cody's birthday is this week, and it's also his last week of classes! Hallelujah. I can't wait until he is no longer stressed about school. Plus having 2 income's in the summertime makes for a happy bank account, which usually means we will do a little more travelling.... Hawaii anyone?
