Summer is Here

Life has been extremely busy the last few weeks! Lots of crazy homework assignments, thesis data collection and stressful tests. But I’M DONE!! I’m done with graduate school classes and classes in general forever! Sure I’ve got two internships, writing a thesis and the praxis exam ahead of me before I get my masters degree, but I’m done with a huge part. It feels great! I really can’t believe how fast it went and that I’m already to this point. We took these pictures with my cohort after our last class. 
I start my first internship at the hospital on Monday, and I’ll be honest I’m pretty terrified and kind of excited too. Meanwhile, Scott and I have been enjoying the outdoors. We hiked the Y at sunset after class and work a week ago and the views were so gorgeous.
My little brother Nick came into town to stay with us for a few weeks while he goes to sports and youth camps at BYU. It is SO much fun to have him around! We have always been super close and I love that he gets to live with me for a little while each summer. 
He always seems so much taller every time I see him!
During the craziness of school work and finals I bought some gorgeous peonies that caught my eye at Costco.  It really is amazing how a simple thing like fresh flowers in your home can lift your spirits 🙂
Scott took me out to eat at Cubby’s (the most amazing local place) for being done with grad school classes. Their salads are so freaking delicious!!
Saturday morning I picked Nick up from EFY (youth camp) and had a super fun day planned for us. We hiked the Y since Nick hadn’t before, went to 180 tacos for lunch (obsessed with that place), hung out at the pool, played ping pong, and rented a puppy. It was a fun filled Saturday for sure! Summer is here!!
