1. My Hubby whisked me off to a five-star resort right in our backyard! We are blessed to live just minutes from a beautiful canyon which happens to house one of my favorite campgrounds. Steve surprised me on Thursday by pulling our trailer up the mountain and parking it there for a few days. The ambience couldn’t be better–complete with a gurgling brook, majestic mountains, a great walking trail, and a sunflower to boot! Thanks for the fun, Steve!
The last night of our camping excursion, two of our kids and some dear friends (I met Judy through scrapbooking!) met us for dinner.
2. Steve and I have a favorite walking/running trail up the canyon. One morning last week, we got half way through our route when it began to bucket down rain. We sprinted the last couple of miles for the car while getting soaked to the bones. We laughed when we got in the car–rain jackets and hats were left there because we were sure it wasn’t going to rain! A great lesson to always be prepared! These are the memories!
3. If you ever come to Utah, you’ve got to walk throughout the Thanksgiving Point Gardens–truly an oasis in the desert. There are 15 themed gardens and 55 acres of flowers, green rolling lawns and the largest man-made waterfall in the western hemisphere! You can check out some pictures here. My favorite garden is “The Light of the World” which contains breathtaking sculptures of the life of Christ. You can watch this short video to see how magnificent they are. I went twice this past week and was able to introduce friends to this amazing garden:
By the way, the above collage was made on my iPhone with the new Becky Higgin’s Project Life app. It’s not available yet but I’ve been beta testing it and so LOVE it. Stay posted when it’s available. I’ll let you know!
I’ll start sharing the HSN October 7th fun this week.
