When we moved to Colorado four years ago we didn’t fall into the category of people that are devastated to leave “Zion.” I can honestly say that Colorado is “home” and that I love living here, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling a little homesick for Utah every now and again. With the birth of my first nephew I was especially missing many of the things in Utah that are near and dear to my heart, so we decided to make a quick trip over the Fourth of July.
Getting out of town was a little hectic. There were loose ends to tie up, friend’s kids to watch, a half day of work for Noel, and most importantly, a hair appointment to keep. I absolutely loved my long hair, but was ready for change (and was maybe getting tired of a certain little girl twirling my hair into knots). I took 12″ off my longest layer to send off to Locks of Love and then headed home to pack and load the car.
The highlight of the trip was of course meeting Porter. I wish I had more frequent opportunities to snuggle him, but I made the most of the time I had.
While in Utah, I was reminded of a few things I miss, like having relatives around who can watch the kids,
living so close to a temple (I know a 1/2 hour drive is nothing to complain about, but I miss the days when I could walk to the temple.),
and of course, the cheese factory.
Then we hopped in the car and made the long drive back home.
It was a good trip and I think it will tide me over until our next visit.
PS In case you were wondering, it turns out Cooper is still not a fan of peacocks.
