I WANT TO WASH MY HANDS, MY FACE, MY HAIR WITH SNOW


we took advantage of the fresh utah powder that's been falling nonstop and found ourselves a cute little sledding hill this afternoon with brandon's sister and her family.


don't let my expression fool you, this hill was tiny! obviously sledding's not really my sport.
turns out i'm much happier taking pictures of the snow than falling down the snow.


it sure is fun being back in the place where brandon and i first fell in love.
look out provo, we're going to come and smooch our way through all our old haunts soon!

  1. Fantastic photos. Little bit different to my Christmas- bathers and pool time in Aus!

  2. Ooh-a "White Christmas". My very favourite Christmas musical. That snow looks amazing-so clean and fluffy seeming. I'm a fan of the first and last photos. Most frameable (for you not me, that'd be weird).

  20. oh my gosh at that first picture! and im dying at the ones of you getting on the sled!

  21. okay this is all adorable and amazing. but may i just say that as a woman who does not care for beards on faces at all - like AT ALL, at all - that husband of yours sure does grow quite the beard. that must be the beards that men everywhere dream of! and there's like a two-tone beard/hair color quality that totally just works. so please do tell him that he may have just changed my mind about beards? and i truly thought it was not possible.

    okay. now that THAT is out of my system. i am glad that you guys were here for the snow. it is almost like it was a sign from the heavens above. if the snow comes....nat will come...you know all that "if you build it, they will come" stuff. pretty poetic if you ask me.

    your huck is my favorite on this planet. that first picture is pure beauty. good work. on both the picture....and his creation....you did good natalie.

  28. I was just reading my grandmother's journal and she wrote that snow water is the best for hair washing because it makes your hair super silky and soft. They'd leave a bucket out to collect snow, let it melt, and then wash away. So, I say go for it, lady!

SO wish I was there! Especially so I'd have a chance to randomly run into you at Cafe Rio or the Wilk or whatever other zoobie place you might've visited. Hope yall had a Merry Christmas! Oh and btw, your Huck is so stinkin' cute.. buut you already knew that, I'm sure. ;)

  33. That last picture is the kind of picture generations to come will look at and talk about how much fun the two of you were and how deeply you loved not only each other, but your lives together. Well done.
