Utah is Beautiful
People often ask us what we miss most about living in NYC and usually I say that I miss how there was something always going on. Shows, entertainment, parks, celebrity sightings… the list goes on and on. Even walking and taking the subway to church usually had some drama. But that being said, that doesn’t mean Utah doesn’t have a lot going on too. I’ve realized after growing up in a suburb of Cincinnati, going to school at BYU, then spending a couple years in Jersey/NYC… it’s really about your attitude. If you want to have fun and enjoy where you live, you have to actively try. Or you can sit in your house and mope. Some people at BYU always talked about how their home state or city was sooooo much better than Provo or Utah. They’d say there was nothing to do. I’d look at them and think… uhm… Have you even opened your eyes?! Look at those mountains! Have you driven up the canyon? Explored SLC? Been to Southern Utah? Utah has so much to offer. It is definitely different than NYC and sometimes takes a little more effort since it’s more spread out and you’re not just walking everywhere. But there’s still stuff to do. And it’s gorgeous. Okay. Rant is over. I just get sick of people bashing Utah and I needed to defend its honor. I wrote about this a couple years ago, but had to get it out again, sorry!
Here’s all the fun things we’ve been doing in Utah the last month:
