Conference weekend

I have so much to blog about! I don't even think I blogged about my birthday. I spent conference weekend in SLC, UT. It was not only my first time there for general conference but my first time in Salt Lake in general. Ha! Of course I'm ready to move there. Salt Lake is so beautiful and clean! I loved where we stayed it was within a mile of temple square so I walked a lot. The salt flats were also a high light. I love how amazing nature is.

I don't have a huge place in my heart for California. Sure people move here because the weather is nice year round and there is a diverse climate. I miss the fall colors and getting all four seasons though. Not to mention when you visit other states like I do frequently (Oregon and now Utah) you realize that the cost of living, gas, etc is where its at because people want to live in California. I'm too poor to be a Californian. Don't even get me started on the public college system.

I'm on the brink of fine/happy and sad/depressed. I'm not acclimated to heart break right now. Its strange when you have so much to be happy about and feel blessed but feel so down in the dumps. So many changes are about to happen in the next 4 to 8 weeks (no I'm not pregnant! haha). Wish me luck!
my mom and I helped a girl from my church choose her wedding dress. She looked beautiful.

my girl Emily and I. It was really nice to be able to visit. Also my favorite side of the temple

  1. You and your mom are adorable! You look like you had a great time!

  2. I so relate to this post. My husband and I lived in Sacramento for three and a half years...and I was so happy when we were able to move back to Salt Lake City! California is expensive for sure, and I felt like I was always in the car. It's nice to be back close to the mountains. Hope you can join us one of these times "into the woods"

    1. Oh small world! Yeah there are the Sierras or Tahoe but its still like an hour drive or more for good hiking or camping. Not to mention you can't camp anywhere with out reservations and at least a $20 fee. Forget having a camp fire! I'll definitely keep an eye out for upcoming hikes!
