// Make time for the things you love, and your days will seem better than ever //

Hello! I am happy to report that our small little warren family is doing great and enjoying almost six (!!) months of marriage! You've probably noticed that the ole blog has been a little neglected... which would be the understatement of the year! But I found some spare time on this quiet Sunday to quickly update you on our lives. 

Colten and I are living in Cedar City in a cute little apartment that has a million and a half quirks. (Someday I'll tell you about trying to cook in an oven that has no temperature gauge!) I am in my last semester at Southern Utah University, and am about 15 days into my first student teaching placement. Yay! I am definitely learning a lot and am so excited to be done with my degree. Colten is starting his Junior year at SUU and is staying super busy with classes, working for the fire marshall, and filming all of the SUU basketball games and gymnastic meets. It is so fun to see him down on the court doing his thing! (I just make sure I'm not within his view, or else I end up on the jumbo tron a little too often!) 

We have been married for almost six months, and we both think that we have got this marriage thing figured out. The first few months were filled with lots of growth, trials, and patience but also a huge amount of laughter, making good memories, and falling even more in love with each other. We've learned to love each other's quirks and rely on each other for everything. We don't always have a lot of time together, but we definitely work to make the most of it when we do! Life is so good with him. :)
