meeting my love in the red rocks...

Over the weekend I drove down to meet Trevor in St. George. I can't believe this is only the second time I have seen him in two months. Saying good bye to him is like slowly ripping a band aid off. When I am home I can distract myself with work and friends and then when we see each other I am reminded of just how much I miss him and it sucks. I am happy that this is the last summer we will have to be apart like this. 

Summer internships and associate positions are just apart of Law School life, so knowing we have one more year left and then we don't have to be apart of our summers ever again is really exciting! I feel guilty even complaining because I know there are so many families that have husbands and wives deployed for years at a time and I just can't imagine that. You guys are amazing!

We made the best of our short weekend and went out with his family on their boat. The weather was perfect! Not too hot, but just hot enough to make getting in the water the most refreshing thing ever. I love boating, but was reminded just how much I need to work out my arms and legs because I am so sore even today two days after!

After the morning and afternoon on the lake we decided to walk around the red rock cliffs. We hadn't been there since the summer we were engaged, and it was fun to just walk around and talk. We were pretty hot after our hot and windy stroll through the red rocks so we decided to grab a drink at the ever so popular "Swig" here in St. George. How a place that pretty much just sells soda can be so popular is beyond me, got to love Utah, haha. I got myself a "dirty" Root Beer which is Root Beer with a shot of coconut syrup in it. It was scrumptious. Trevor got their popular Mountain Dew and Mango combination. After we refreshed ourselves we hit up a movie and had dinner in this adorable diner. It was nice to actually have dinner with my husband! I miss just talking to him in person, so it was nice.


Sunday came too quickly. After breakfast and Father's Day gift giving and a great lunch we were packed up and heading our separate ways. Thankfully I have a lot going on the next few weeks to keep me preoccupied, but I feel bad for Trevor who has to be alone in Vegas with no friends or family. I think it is harder for him then me for us to be apart :( I love the summer time, but this is one summer I want to go by quickly, I want my husband back!

  3. My husband is in his second year of law school and doing a summer associate position right now too! Thankfully though, I work from home and the place that he is working is only 30 minutes from his in-laws, so we just temporarily moved to his parents house for the summer. I am looking forward to going back home, but am thankful that we got to stay together for the summer. I hope the summer goes by fast for you!

  4. It looks so beautiful there! I've never been to the islands. I'm glad you had a good time and I totally understand being apart from the man you love - my sailor has been on deployment for almost 8 months now.

  7. You got some AMAZING photos! You're making me so sad I never ventured south of Manti when I lived in Provo. I hear there are so many amazing things over there.

    And hey! You're looking pretty good, beautiful lady!

  16. My husband and I lived apart for six months while I was finishing my last semester in college and it was so hard! I can't imagine doing it for so long. That's awesome!

    I totally know what you mean about keeping yourself busy. I joined so many clubs my last semester of college to keep my mind off of missing him!
