these are a few of my favorite (utah) things...

returned late sunday night from a wonderful 2.5 week vacation. well, three vacations in one, actually. laundry is {almost done}, fridge is stocked, leah's back in school, bags are unpacked and we're slowly creeping back to normal. lots to catch up on...including, but not limited to...some of my favs from this wonderful trip...

family...two angelic 12+ hr. car rides. seriously...
old friends...new friends...
friends who are getting really old (i mean aging)...lush utah grass...10 years of memories...visiting old apartments without having to live in them...
clean teeth...ample time to read...cafe. rio.

I loved reading the book, "The Help." What did you think about it? Looks like a fun trip, I am so glad you got to go to your High School reunion. I should have gone to mine!

You packed a lot in to 3 weeks. So glad you had a chance to visit . . . with everyone!

So, so, SO sad I didn't get to see you! I'm kicking myself. Glad you had a good time - looks like I'll have to trek out to California! :)

And those red shoes are FABULOUS!

Oh the rio, the grass, the provo apartments. Utah and it's memories are so great! And totally impressed that you're already unpacked, fridge stocked, laundry-ed...it usually takes me another 3 weeks to recuperate and get productive again, especially the unpacking part.

Same here with the unpacking. Honestly, 3-4 weeks. It's like I want to stay in vacation mode. I love your blog, how you highlight people. I do a sewing and then a style/design blog and was just thinking about how cool it would be to do a blog about people (other than your family)...you're now my hero!!! : ) Love you! I'll add you to my reader.

I love going to Utah! We're headed there this weekend and we'll be stopping at Cafe Rio and Sundance - our two favorite places while we lived there.

Okay, I can't stop laughing. You took a picture by the madrigal scrapbook. Maren. I'm SO glad I didn't know YOU back then! :)
