Before Tempe

Before Tempe, our deck of cards never toppled due to attention-mongering,
 we never went outside much unless we absolutely had to,
 Matt took naps alone, on the couch,
 we always figured one of us would win in our two-player game of Phase 10,
 we didn't think of the back of the couch as a perch,
there was no one to lay at my feet while I cooked dinner,
 and we always had enough room in our bed.
But we also never knew how much we would be smitten with this sweet girl. I don't know what we would do without her, she makes us laugh, gives us big sloppy kisses and makes us feel more like a family. 
Now that we have her, this is what we get to come home to! And we couldn't love anything more :)
Happy weekend to you!
Erin, Matt and Tempe

Alma Mater

Matt and I are both graduates of Utah State University, it's a sense of pride for us. We love this school. We met here, fell in love here and still live here. I've lived in Logan almost as long as I lived in West Jordan with my family. I claim Logan as my home. When Matt and I went to New York this summer and people would ask where we're from we would proudly say, 'Logan, Utah,' after a confused pause we would then say, 'it's about 100 miles north of Salt Lake City, almost to Idaho.'
We love the beauty of Cache Valley in every season - my favorite is, by far, autumn. Well, it's winter now in Logan, but you can't tell because we have no snow - and very little on the tips of the mountains. Weird.
So, here's to our Alma Mater, a place we love and always will.
