 Hey friends!

I feel like it's been soo long since I've done one of this life update posts, and I did some investigating and what do you know, my last one was back in February? Whaaaat?! Haha my bad sorry future me, good luck remembering. So let's get right to the updates.

1. Tayler and I have entered our senior year here at SVU.  Woo hoo! We both could have graduated this semester, but a senior season of baseball was really important to Tayler and I am not done being a baseball wife, so we decided to stick around for an extra 4 months and graduate in April. It's weird because I feel like we will never get out of this student life stage, but the days are flying by and I have a sneaking suspicion it will be upon us before we know it.

2. We have relocated apartments and we are so. much. happier. Our last apartment was cute and tiny but paper thin walls in a married complex is NEVER a good idea. Also the complete lack of closets got two thumbs down from me and my wardrobe. We are now in a basement apartment with closets and an awesome family above us, just like when we were first married!  (you can see those pictures here.) It's fun to have come a full circle!

3. Both of our callings were saved for us while we were in Texas this summer. I am the second counselor in the Young Women's presidency and Tayler is a teacher for the Valiant 11 class. Although we miss being together in nursery, we are happy with our positions and the kids/youth we get to meet through them.

4.  We started a photography Instagram! Finally. Haha we've been meaning to for a year but we never could come up with a name we both loved (and Peterson is not a helpful last name when starting a business). We have decided to call it Ridgeline Studios- kinda outdoorsy, with a nod to the Blue Ridge where we live right now. It's our way to have a photography portfolio/gallery before we decide to invest in a website, you can check it out here.

5. We went through a bag of spinach before it wilted and slimed! Haha this is a big accomplishment for us because we refer to our produce drawers as The Place Where Good Intentions Go to Die. For the past 3 weeks we have been trying to eat healthier -for the first time in our marriage life- and we have both really enjoyed it! Mainly we focus on eating less carbs (we just love sandwiches?? haha) so just replacing toast with a smoothie or omelet and replacing pasta with spaghetti squash, salads, beans or sweet potatoes. It's making a big difference so far, but then again the only way our diets could go was up haha. So if you have any super simple healthy treats or meals you love please share!

Well that's all I can think of for now, it's all just studying and working and eating.
Thanks for following along and HAVE A DELECTABLE DAY!! (can you tell I'm watching The Great British Baking Show while typing this)
