I had visited Utah many times when I was younger, visiting family and eventually when I came over to go to school here. Whenever I returned to England I always missed the mountains and their beauty. It was a strange feeling to miss a place and feel so at home in a place that I had never lived.
It’s been over 20 years since I moved here now and even though I miss England I still consider Utah my home…I love summers especially and I do love the beauty of the snow. I am not a huge fan of cold weather, there is no denying the beauty of the sunshine against the beautiful white mountains and blue skies.
This weekend I am spending time with my youngest 2 boys up in Midway (a small town about 45 minutes outside of Salt Lake City), and as you can see the snow is bringing real beauty here. I took a moment to snap a few pictures of me playing with the snow and acting silly and I have to admit, it felt really good. Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day lives, and I know that I have a tendency to be a little too serious sometimes. So I have to admit, when I allow myself to let it go and I am not the “fun sponge” like my kids have been known to call me, I actually have been known to have a little fun (even when I’m cold).
Don’t be surprised if you actually find some posts and pictures of me over the next few months in full winter gear, sledding and skiing. I promised Brandon and the boys that I would do a little of each. In fact, between Christmas and New Year we will be going to our family cabin in Star Valley Wyoming and pretty much all we will be doing is hibernating and a few winter activities.
When it’s a beautiful, sunny winter day, it’s the perfect time to add a little fur to your wardrobe and have fun with it. I am wearing a cute black fur vest, I added a plum colored beanie and my great Sorel winter/rain booties. Throw on a pair of faux leather leggings, and cozy winter sweater, your favorite sunnies and voila…the perfect winter look!
