So it has only been a cool 103 degrees for the past seven days. The heat here, combined with the humidity, has been quite a shocker for us. However, we have decided that we live in the most scenic place in Dallas, so we wanted to share a bit of that with ya'll.
We live on the edge of a beautiful lake called White Rock. We can literally walk out our front door, cross the street, and enjoy the lake. It has a nine mile biking/running trail around it, that Swede frequently takes advantage of. Two months ago he even decided to take on the nine mile challenge run. He got half way and about died... the last four miles he struggled to get home before dark. White Rock quickly humbled Swede, and he realized he was not in as good of shape as he thought... so he now sticks with a comfortable 3 miles a day :) He even talks me into roller blading next to him sometimes. Here are some fun photos of our front yard.

This is the lovely Dallas skyline

P.S. This is where our 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 850 sq. foot love shack resides


  1. You have a beautiful view.
    Congratulations on your newwly wedded bliss; my you still feel the same way in 10, 20, or 50 years!

  2. I want to come visit you guys!! We all miss you and love you too. Hope you had a fun 4th of July

  3. Hey let me know when a good time to come visit is? I don't mind sleeping between the two of you either! Swede Jessica B. got home two weeks ago and things are going pretty good, so do you think we could sleep four wide in your love shack?
