Jody and I have been married for 6 years now! We live a simple life, but it's a happy life. We've been blessed with our sweet Elsie who we adore each and every day. Here's to a blog of thoughts, memories, and who are we kidding, lots of Elsie!!

A Man's Best Friend

It's a sad day at the Marshall house today!! We received a phone call from Jody's mom late last night, that Jody's had lost his best friend...
His Dog Frank :(
Jody has had this dog for 4 years! He bought him back when we were dating in 2005, and had him shipped to Las Vegas from Ohio! We still remember the day; picking him up from the airport and seeing his sad face with a big red bow! He has been Jody's best friend since... going camping together, taking him to the motocross track when no buddies could go, or sneaking him in the house to sleep by the bed cause I was so against giving Frank another chance of spending the night in the house and hoping for no accidents!!! ;)

Need less to say, Frank was an awesome dog and he had a mind of his own! He did only what he wanted to do and there was no stopping him! There we're multiple occasion's he would walk down to my parents house just to say hello or hit the town to see what was going on! He always knew when Jody was gone because he would wine for HOURS and would get SOO excited to see him when he would return! This is the last time Jody saw him and he is one sad man that he isn't here with him now to make Massachusetts feel more like home!

We are back in action!!

Oh it feels SOO good to be in a place where it feels like "Home" again! I thought the company condo was going to be the end of me but it's definitely been worth the wait!!

~First off, We are LOVING our new home! The views are gorgeous and it's so peaceful and quiet out on our little island! Jody and I will wake up in the mornings and just roll over to watch the waves or boats pass on by! We love it!! The neighbors have all been great and our friends from Utah also live a couple doors down so it's nice to have them close by! We are slowly getting everything put in it's place and making it look nice! Here's a few pics of the inside and the views before the movers arrived!

Our little Island.. We love it :)

Front Room...

The beautiful water and sunset from our front room.. (and balcony)

Jody and I going for a walk on the ocean bottom since the tide was low! Normally we can't walk out here!

And Jody posing for the camera from our front view!

So ....this is our new home in Mass! Once I get more decorations and new furniture in, I will post more pictures of the inside!

~We have also been doing fun things each weekend to keep us from getting homesick!! :) We started by touring downtown Boston with Chinatown, Newbury Street, and Faneuil Hall again! They are all awesome things to check out and we are trying to take advantage of seeing and doing everything while we are so close!! I suck at carrying my camera so I miss out on some GREAT pictures but here's a few!

Jody downtown

Some guy flying a kite in the middle of the city from a wheel chair.. There's a few characters here :)

Newbury Street.. Great Shopping!

Me at Public Garden Park

~We also flew to San Diego to enjoy some warm sun a few weekends back! Jody had an event there so we made a trip out of it and had a great time! Gotta love San Diego!!!!!

La Jolla Beach

And the temple from our Hotel... My favorite one :)

And our favorite thing right now is to take drives to nearby fairs and festivals that are all going on this time of year! Just to drive around New England in the fall is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We stayed at a hotel in Dover, New Hampshire to attend the with friends; then attended another one this last week down in Carver, Massachusetts for the Cranberry FestNone of them have compared to the good ol' Clark County Fair but they have been a great time!! ;)

(I didn't take these picture's but this is EXACTLY what it looks like here right now! Absolutely Beautiful!)

~The only down side right now....is the weather!!! That's all anybody talks about is the winters here and how the bad months are November to around February! Well.... it's only October and it is absolutely freezing! I thought we would transition okay being in Utah for a couple years but here, it's SO different! It literally chills you to the bone; You feel so damp, cold and the wind really adds that cherry on top! ;) The other morning we woke up to our bed literally shaking from the high winds... it's crazy!!! Anyways... sorry for the long post but I've been without the internet for a while so I'm trying to make up for lost time! :) AND...We miss our families like crazy and can't wait for the Holidays!!!!
