Sam and Rox- graduation2

fern canyon 4








Starting the new year has made me realize how amazing 2011 really was. Sam and I really made it a point to take advantage of our last year in Utah. We didn't know for sure, but we felt a move on the horizon and didn't want to miss out. I think that moves can be really hard on a couple, and I have loved looking through these photos and being reminded that once we get packed, find a place to live, and move across the country--our lives will slow down again, and we won't have to move again for a long time. Right? Yes, the light at the end of the tunnel.

I think 2011 was pretty darn amazing. It will be hard to top!
