We've been here in Utah for close to 3 months and so far we really love it. I've never been to a city quite like SLC... it's so clean, beautiful, and feels very safe. It's not too huge and yet it has a lot to offer.

We live downtown and we really like it. Lee works a lot.. so that leaves Jude and I car-less a lot of the time. I still need to get used to using the buses/trax.. but there are still places that we can walk to that are close by. There's a super cute coffee shop a few houses down from us (which is seriously dangerous!) and then we have a organic grocery store down the road from us. There's also a plaza a little further away with several stores and restaurants that we can walk to if we're feeling especially ambitious.
Probably in the summer we will take advantage of the buses more. 

Anyway.. there are lots of organic grocery options (which is a big deal for us!) and there are lots and lots of young families with babies. 
People are super friendly around here. When we first moved in .. our neighbors brought us potato soup and came over to meet us. And then for Valentines day our landlords (who are also our neighbors) brought us cookies! It was so sweet of them both! 

Another awesome thing, is that we found our church through one of my blog friends, Meredith! We are really loving it there.. and are so grateful that we found such a great home church so quickly! (Thanks, meredith! :) 

It's so beautiful here.. the mountains are seriously breathtaking. I can't wait to do some camping in the mountains with my little family in the summer!

Utah, we really love you!

Oh, and we're ready for some more Spring-y like weather whenever you are... 


  1. I'm so glad you're loving it here! Did it snow up where you are today? It's sunny here in Provo but I'm hearing you guys got a little bit of left-over winter.

  2. So glad you are liking it there! Western cities always seem more friendly to me in general. :-)

  3. I am glad you like it! We need to get together again so we can get to know each other better! Tomorrow, we are having a play group from 10-11:30 if you want to come. I'll tell Becky to let you know since you probably won't see it on here in time.
