Yes, I could live in Utah. There, I said it!
I just came home for a quick trip and it was so wonderful to see my family that I love sooooo much. All of my sisters were there and my brother too! Bridget's garden has become the "Secret Garden" with lush flowers and herbs growing with life. As a California girl, Utah has become my second home and at first I really didn't appreciate the natural beauty and community charm. With time and also having moved back to California for a while, I've realized that I really love it and miss it. . . and yes, I would love to raise my family there. It's not the only place I'd like to live, of course, but it is a good one and I'm realizing that more and more these days. It is good to go away from places for a good while and return with new perspectives and different understandings. Bridget has just moved back to Provo and being at her house was like coming home for a while. If the store Anthropologie were a woman or if they had a woman that embodied their fashion and shabby chic feel it would be Bridget. She has been selling her luscious foods at the Farmer's Market and her blackberry tarts are a must! If you know Bridget, you'll know what I'm talking about. Jason has always loved Utah and likes the thought of moving back there some day as well. Michelle is right, there is this weird love-hate relationship with Provo ( but like she said " not really that dramatic" ) and I'm feeling the love- ha ha. It also helps to know that we have family there on both sides and living far away has helped me to appreciate that.
Posted are some photos of my sisters' children. Our nieces and nephews on both sides of the family are so beautiful and sweet and I'd love for Soren to spend time with them! On the Monson side he has 2 cousins just about his age! I'm missing my family!
