Love


I had someone ask me what was so great about Utah. What did I love about it? Where do I begin? I love the mountains, the Great Salt Lake, all of the gorgeous national parks, the outdoor activities, the beautiful city I get to live in, and of course a lot of my family live here. I love that I get to have four distinct seasons. Yes, sometimes winter lasts too long, but it's nice during the holidays and makes you appreciate the other seasons more. Spring and Fall in Utah are divine.

I took this picture right outside my kitchen door yesterday. Yep, this is the place.

WOW just beautiful and it's great to love where you live isn't it. I have traveled a lot and so many people don't like where they are....so why do they stay? Anyway, I'm happy you shared... thanks.

Hi, I just popped over from Spain Daily's blog, interested in this "corners" idea...and I see you are in SLC! I have a friend who moved there a year ago, and my DH and I will be visiting next month. So, I'll get to see your city in person....coming from Southern California I just hope I'm ready for the cold! and perhaps snow! But I'm sure it'll be beautiful, with the Christmas lights too.

That's it; just wanted to acknowledge visiting your blog and liked what I saw.
