Utah aka BEST PLACE ON EARTH!

So, you know when you don't really feel homesick or you forget you are homesick until you go home? Yes, well that is what happened when we went to Utah in the beginning of August! I miss it so much. I miss the people, the mountains, the air, the family and the friends. We went to Utah for a family reunion and a small little vacation.

We had a fun potluck with a few of my good friends from West Jordan and other places in the Salt Lake Valley. It is strange to think we are all married, and most have kids of their own. Man, we grow up fast. I remember freshman year of college when we were still getting used to each other and our "fungus"! What great memories, and what true friendships I made.


On Saturday, we had the Giles family reunion. What bittersweet feelings from that. Most of my extended family was in attendance. It was great to see everyone, we haven't all been together since my grandmother was alive. Sure we've seen each other at a few weddings, but there was something to say about the special reunion this summer. If I learned anything it is FAMILIES ARE FOREVER! And that is what it is all about. No wonder the church has such a strong spirit there. Love you all!
