when i'm reading blogs,
i really like knowing where people live and what they love about it.
i love getting snow.
i love the mountains.
i love the people.
i love that everyone i know here is so motivated and talented.
i love living so close to all of my family members.
i love the humility of salt lake city. it's not a huge city, but it's got tons of huge-city features.
plus it's clean and nice to explore.
i love riding trax.
i love that i can travel 3 hours north and wear a parka and 3 hours south and wear shorts.
i love having loving neighbors.
i love being able to walk to church.
i love having the suburbs so close to the city.
i love being able to fly to vegas or cali for a hundred dollars.
i love that the license plates here say "life elevated". cool.
i love the creative community and the cool restaurants.
i love the options and possibilities here.
sure, it's not new york or LA or DC,
but it satisfies the very basic needs i have.
the city + the natural...
i love planning a saturday night and being able to choose between a hike or adventure in the mountains or a completely black tie event... all within minutes' driving distance of each other.
i've lived here my entire life
and i'm sure as shootin' that i'm going be here for a long time.
utah, i love you.
