you know those people who are so obsessed with their nieces/nephews and all of their friends are sick of hearing about how cute they are? well i have turned into one of those people. i fully believe that my niece is the cutest almost-2-year-old that has ever existed. i don't get to see her nearly as much as i'd like to because she lives in arizona with her mom (my sister, tessa) and dad (my brother-in-law, collin). but collin is in med school and has a rotation in salt lake so their cute little family is staying with my parents for an entire month and i couldn't be more thrilled about it.

so my life has gotten ridiculously busy with the new school year, work, and now every second of my free time has been spent playing with my lovely niece, gwenna. so really it's her and her adorableness that's to blame for my lack of blogging...but really, can you blame me?
