Park City, Utah

I think we all can agree that in order to make it through the {sometimes} mundane and repetitive days of everyday life, we need something to look forward to. Whether it be a movie night, a hair appointment or a small getaway, having small milestones ahead can help the longs days of work seem a bit more worth it.

Wyet and I live a very blessed life. We are both lucky enough to have full time jobs, to have found the perfect starter home in our quiet little town and to be together. Nonetheless, work can get boring, housework gets repetitive and our daily routine can seem a bit dull at times. The only way I have found to combat that feeling of monotony, is to plan something in the future to look towards.

As our summer adventures had come to a close, it seemed there wasn't much to do. That is when we decided it was time to plan something. Something in the near future that we could get excited about. We needed a getaway.

After some online searching, we discovered that Park City was an ideal option for our retreat. It was close enough that it kept us within our budget, yet far enough away to feel like a vacation. Once we made our arrangements, we could hardly wait for October 4th to strike the calendar. When the day finally arrived, we were more than eager to leave behind our stresses and worries and get on with our relaxation.

Lucky for us, this mini retreat panned out wonderfully. The scenery of Park City was idyllic. The slopes had a thin layer of snow and the rest of the landscape was the epitome of autumn. We were just a short walk away from the infamous Park City Main Street where we spent the majority of our time. We enjoyed a romantic dinner next to a roaring fireplace, came across artwork from the legendary graffiti artist Banksy, ate the best Vietnamese food of our lives and even enjoyed a few afternoon cocktails. Most importantly, we were together. For the first time in weeks, we had each others undivided attention. It made me realize that a little alone time with my main squeeze was just what I needed to revive.
We are huge Banksy fans so seeing this was one of our main highlights from Park City

Loving every minute of our sweet escape

You {All} Mean the World to Me

Sunday, October 6, 2013

I am not one of those people that has dozens of friends. Rather than keeping countless acquaintances involved in bits and pieces of my life, I tend to have a few people that just know it all. These are the people that I trust and depend on whether I interact with them on a daily basis or not. I don't think that the time spent with another person indicates the amount of love we have for them. From my experiences, sometimes the people that I see least often, mean the most to me. I wanted to take just a moment and thank each of you for being a part of my life. You are the ones that make life so beautiful.
Regardless of the circumstances, these two always know how to make me laugh.
Two of the greatest women I have ever known. They both continue to teach me how important it is to be a strong, independent woman.

Here's to one of the most thoughtful friends I have {also one of the craftiest}
Whether going out for a drink or staying at home in our sweats, it's always a good time with these two.
This little peanut is as close as I ever got at a baby sister. Nearly ten years later, I am happy she is still a part of my life.
Over the past few years, Alex has heard every ridiculous detail of my life. For some reason, she still answers the phone.
Not many people are lucky enough to consider their parents as people they can tell everything to {fortunately, I am}

My brothers are the best- they really need no explanation. {Blurry picture, but it's still great}
Have you ever wondered if you changed a little, would your friends stick around? This is tried and true between Tonja and I. Regardless of any decision either of us make, the other is there without a skip of the beat.
Ashlee has always been {and always will be} my person. I am so lucky to have her in my life. She is as real as it gets, and that's what I love most about her.
And of course, my puzzle piece. Everything in my life fell in place when realized we were meant to be together. I wouldn't trade a day spent with this guy for anything in the world.
