While in Salt Lake last week for a lighting-fast business trip, I had every intention of taking lots of photos of all the things that I miss most about living in Utah. The snow-capped mountains. Waking up to fresh powder outside my window. Rows + rows of thrifty goodness at the DI (oh, the DI). All of my amazing friends whom I miss terribly. The reality? I filled up my memory card with TONS of images from my breakfast at Eva’s Bakery in downtown SLC. I mean, I couldn’t help myself! Everything about this place is what designer dreams are made of, from the blue and yellow patterned flooring to the calligraphed labels in the bakery case to the gorgeous menu typography. I was in heaven (literally…this is Utah, after all).

We made it! Finally!


Does it get anymore masculine than this??? Hahah!

After 14 hours of driving and an hour of sleep and a departure time of 3am and squeezing THREE adult-size bodies into my tiny VW bug with the spare seat jam-packed full of pillows and a TV and other random crap and my mom and dad towing the rest of my stuff on a trailer behind their truck, we are finally here in Utah and settling in quite nicely! I am in LOVE with our apartment! Comparing what we had in San Diego (1 bedroom, 1 bath) to what we have in Utah (2 bedrooms, 2 baths) and reaping a savings of $500/month in rent, I am in apartment heaven! Now if only we could turn the blazing heat down about 30 degrees…

Yesterday John and I took a spontaneous trip to Sundance, which -get this-  is only 13 miles from where we live! We can’t believe our good fortune because this place is beyond amazing and it feels like a world away (and several degrees cooler)!

Sidenote: the dandelions here are HUGE!! I don’t know what kind of juice they are on, but holy moly, they are giant (and beautiful!)!

There’s green everywhere! So gorgeous!

Another Sidenote: John pointed to the squirrels we kept seeing and said “what happened to their tails??” Us California folk are used to squirrels with big bushy tails! Which reminds me of another sidenote: while flying back to California last month, my mom and I sat next to an Australian man who told us he had just seen his first squirrel while in Idaho! Isn’t that funny what we take for granted? He sees kangaroos hopping about and we see squirrels darting across our backyards and we both find this to be completely mundane. Makes me laugh!

So far, we are loving this new adventure! The apartment is almost ready to go public, so hang in there! In the meantime, check out these sneaks from this month’s Elle’s Studio Gallery – fantastic! I can’t wait to see what everyone did! Here’s a little sample of my work:

Have a great Sunday!
