Malaska Family Reunion

In May we took some time off work (gasp) to go live in Toquerville for a long weekend with all the Malaska Family.

This was this first time this happened in ever, so you see, It was quite the event. One where we mostly played constantly, cooked a lot, and played a lot more.

June

June has practically come and gone. Here are something's I enjoyed.

1. School is out! one serious move down the street, one 3 day conference, 2 toquerville visits, and I’m about ready to settle down. My total nap hours from the past 2 days=5.

this is me deciding I absolutely have to paint. More photos to come. Maybe.

here is an un-altered photo of me at school. In all my acne, frazzled hair, fluorescent-light soaked  glory. School gets to everyone seniors. You are not the only ones.

2.  I get to actually do things! with friends even!! Like go to Provo outdoor concert series on the rooftop. Does anyone else remember when you didn’t have to save a spot on the rooftop 2 hours before the actual concert? Yeah. Me too. None-the-less. Still lovely

And I even got to celebrate birthdays of two lovely ladies. Unfortunately this was the only picture that wasn’t blurry.

But, let us note that it was a lovely day in Nephi. I ate many doritos. And we talked into the night, like women should.

As always, there is more, these are just a few of the bright spots in our June.

Something poetic, something profound.
