these? Six word love stories? I mean, everything is always my newest favorite thing, but these are my newest favorite thing. People telling their love story in exactly six words. (Some are happy. Some are grumpy, and sometimes the grumpy ones are the funniest.)
Some of the best happy ones (from the comments on the link above):
Saw him. Hired him. Married him.
I was wrong. You are right.
We have the same operating system.
So, of course, just like anyone else who loves to write, I tried to figure out my love story in six words. Here are some of my best attempts.
Calculus is romantic? Who knew? Sigh.
Turns out he's funny. Lucky me.
Two not-so-free spirits still delighted together. (Did I cheat on that one? How do we count hyphenations?)
Eleven years blinks. Even better now.
How about the rest of you? Do you have a six-word love story?

I hope all the rest of you had as marvelous a summer as we did. Our favorite activities were:
1. NOT blogging. I'm an on-again-off-again blogger at best, and when I examine my history, summer always gets the shaft. Probably because we are doing lots of fun stuff instead of blogging about fun stuff.
2. Visiting the LifeFlight helicopter. When you live by the hospital, you see the helicopter coming and going a lot, so it's SUPER exciting to get to be inside the chopper and ask any questions you want.

Bella got a haircut, too, and it was evidently so inspiring that she felt like she wanted to expand on my artistry. A couple choppy layers and some blunt bangs later and . . .

Take a look at these two pictures:
1) My youngest daughter loves my mom with all her heart. If my memory serves me correctly, she said "Nana" before she said "Mama."
2) An extra pair of size two panties and a plastic grocery bag can tide you over in a pinch when you find yourself two hours from home on a Sunday without an extra diaper. (Turns out the gas stations in Green River do not sell diapers. Or wipes. That was an interesting change duty in the bathroom.)

The Ashley National Forest offers some of its old Guard Stations for overnight stays. They offer cabins, with bunkhouses, running hot water, and electric lights for as little as $35 night. It's an opportunity to experience what it would be like to live as a park ranger. (60 years ago, but that's fine.) What a bargain, right?
Here's what I learned:
1) My kids love to play. The more dirt and trees, the better. Add a bridge, their Grammy, Grampy, three cousins, some pipe cleaners, and an outhouse, and you've officially discovered heaven.

I think I've mentioned before that John's Jeep has become our little adventure vehicle. With all of the Uintah Mountains basically at our doorstep, and an iPhone to stuff completely full of topographical maps, we regularly head out on little expeditions. Yesterday was one of our most adventurous.
After an hour-and-a-half drive, we headed up the trail for a mile-and-a-half. Bella started out as leader. . .
Get out the way of me and my crew-crew-crew.")
As we were trying to find some fish in the lake, we heard rocks falling from the cliff. When we looked up, we saw this:
The real mountain goats, of course, inspired my own little babies to scamper around the rocks. We escaped nearly unscathed--nothing a few bandaids couldn't fix.

First Day of School. I found this fantastic printable sign on Pinterest, of course.
