I feel it all, I feel it all....

We went to Park City for the weekend. The city was sleepy, a tourist town in off season, my favorite time to visit. The Aspens glowed yellow and the air was crisp, perfect for relaxing in the hotel hot tub with your arms out on the cold cement when overheated.

Ben had to check up on a project for his company at the Olympic Museum. We must have been in the right place at the right time because we were lucky enough to have the chance to be able to ski on the olympic course while there.

I'm so glad we bought those matching yellow snow suits last year.

People in Park City are so glamorous. Can you imagine being so tack...um, I mean wealthy you can wear fur any time of day, or...um, night?

Overall a lovely weekend and a good way to feel the Autumn air on your face.

Oh, and by the way....

    Today is our 4 year anniversary. And I love him more than words 
can express.


My little brother Levi has the best smile. The sides of his mouth curve into a perfect U shape, much better than the straight line of my own smile. His smile is how he earned the affectionate nickname, Elmer, as a baby. The resemblance was uncanny, bald head and that cute little smile, and of course the R's pronounced as W's. "I'm gonna git dat wascally wabbit." The nickname became an endearing reminder of the sweet boy we all adore, even though at times it is now buried under the tough exterior of a soldier. Levi is currently earning the title of soldier at basic training with the Army, working to serve our country with honor. I saw a picture of him at my mom's house, sent from base last week. He looked tired, but had that same great smile none the less. He told us before he left that all he wanted to do was something in his life that would bring honor to his name. I know the reality is that we are the ones who are honored to have him. Wuv you Elmer, big sis.

Wedded Bliss

I found these pictures taken of my friend Kenzie's wedding a few weeks ago. Her wedding was at her parents home in Liberty. The night was cool and the evening light was perfect as we feasted on homemade crusty bread dipped in olive oil, hot artichoke dip, and gourmet cheeses. A band played as darkness crept in and the bride and groom glowed in the midst of all the friendly faces. The perfect late summer night. Congrats my friend!

Isn't her dress so fab?

Hot Diggity Dam!

Two weekends ago we were,um.....bored. It was an extra long weekend, it was rainy, and we had no where to go. Duh! We have family in Las Vegas! Utah+Long weekend=Bored. Vegas+Long Weekend=Not Bored. Sing it with me now, VIVA Las Vegas, VIVA Las Vegas! It sure did deliver too. We even got invited to an impromtu pool party complete with homemade b.b.q. ribs and the BYU vs. Oaklahoma Game pool side over the loud speakers. Needless to say it was anything but boring. I also requested to go visit the Hoover Dam while there, just because. Pretty impressive slab of cement if I do say so myself. Thanks for havin us Garners!

Summer luvin', had me a blast...

Fall is here. I can feel it in the crisp morning air. After living in Colorado for the last four summers, I can finally say I've had the summer I had longed for here in Utah. It was hot, full of fireworks and watermelon, rodeo's, and even included a river float or two. It was fun and just what we needed. Here's just a little sample:


Bear Lake

(love those niecies)

Late Summer Harvest

Yes, just what we needed.
