See ya Later Summer!

Saying that this summer was incredible is a huge understatement! This summer will be one that I will remember for the rest of my life. I had so many fun times with my sister and family, photographed so many beautiful weddings and people, Tyler came home to me after his two year mission, we got ENGAGED, and filled the rest of the summer up with fun adventures and amazing times. It seriously was the most eventful summer of my life and I'm so grateful for every single moment of it. Now it's monday and I have to go to school in an hour, it still hasn't hit me that this summer is done-zo! On the bright side this is my LAST fall semester that I will ever have. I'll be graduating in Spring and I'm literally counting down the minutes until I'm finished with school for forever! Also my favorite time of the year is right around the corner…

FALL!!! :) 

Gorgeous changing leaves, hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, corn fields, sweaters, boots, beanies and hats, halloween (my fave holiday), scary movies, chill weather, campfires, and so much more!! I wish fall would last 8 months of the year and summer lasted 4. How incredible would that be?! But for right now I'm saying adios to the best summer of my life!

Our Spot by the Lake

Tyler and I have a special spot up at a lake where we like to hike up to, relax, and have picnics! The other day we hiked up there for the first time since he's been back. It was fun to go see our initials that we carved into a tree at the spot almost 4 years ago! Has is really been that long?! Anyways, it's such a pretty hike and it's so rejuvenating to breathe some fresh air and take in the beauty of our surroundings.

Some Mountain Lovin'

So there's this place called Albion Basin up Little Cottonwood Canyon and I kept hearing from everyone how beautiful it was up there! I booked an engagement shoot for this upcoming week at that location so Tyler and I went to go check it out and take some cute pics. Let me tell you, the self timer is only 10 seconds long so I'm sure it was the funniest sight in the world to watch Tyler and I taking turns sprinting back to the position trying not to kill ourselves by tripping over anything. We laughed so much and had a blast! Tyler is really creative and he kept thinking of fun new things to do in the photos. I love sharing my passion for photography with him and I love when we do photography related things together! So grateful for this sweet boy of mine.

On Saturday July 26, 2014 I finally got engaged to my best friend in the whole world and love of my life!! Happiest moment is an understatement for when he proposed and the whole rest of the day after! To be honest, Tyler had been teasing me ever since we went ring shopping that he was going to propose way soon! So I was expecting it to happen at some point! I don't get surprised very easily because I like to figure things out and I'm pretty good at it too! But the actual moment Tyler proposed completely caught me off guard in the best way possible! 

Tyler and I had a fun date planned for the day and he picked me up to go to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date, Fratelli's. P.S. if you've never been there you HAVE to go! We love that place! Anyways, we started driving there and he took some weird, long way which I thought was strange. The whole time he's talking to me about when we first met and reminiscing about our relationship. He even drove past Alta just to point out that that's where we met which made me laugh pretty hard. So we get to the restaurant and we sit right next to each other instead of across from one another (T&E tradition, not sure when that started). Anyways, he started talking to me and then all of a sudden he asked if it would matter if my family were there or not to see us get engaged. I said it wouldn't matter and it would be kind of sweet and intimate if it were just the two of us. And then I really don't remember what he said next but it was along the lines of "so if I proposed to you right now, you'd be happy" and he whipped out that perfect box with the perfect ring and proposed to me right then and there! It totally took me by surprise and it was the sweetest thing! I loved getting engaged in a place that was so special to us and where our relationship began almost 4 years ago. 

We were SO ecstatic! Then the restaurant gave us the best free gelato with hearts all over it, which was really nice! Then we went back to show both our families before heading to the TRAIN concert downtown, which was seriously SUCH a blast! Ty and I danced and sang and partied all night long calling each other "fiancĂ©" every 5 seconds! It was such an incredible day and I love that boy with all of my heart! It couldn't have been any more perfect! 

I can't stop staring at this little beaut on my finger!! It's so amazing!!
