Warning: Not my usually sunny self post.

Guys, I’m rarely sick, but here I am feeling like pooh. Bleh. I’m sure you really want to hear complaints to brighten up your day so I’ll keep it to a minimum. It started out as what I thought was food poisoning and now it’s a cold. Thankfully, I work from home so I don’t even have to pretend to smile at people. This, combined with the passing of a friend last week and funeral services on Monday, has reminded me of the frailties of mortality. It’s one of those passings that I don’t quite understand and I’m not sure I ever will.  I won’t get too much into it right here right now. I just hope that he’s found peace.

Anywhoo, I had a craft project planned for today but considering I couldn’t really get off my can much, I’m going to show you a bit of our new hood according to my Instagram photos instead. One of our favorite things to do is go house looking (spying really) and we’ve found some really darling charmers and wonderful 60s gems. Not to say they are all like that because, let’s be honest, most are boring, beige, and brick, but some stand out (like the four above).

We went on a little adventure to Utah Lake on Sunday and the views are spectacular! The lake is in the process of thawing so one half is frozen while the other half is on vanguard. Top that off with some snowy mountains surrounding the valley and it’s pretty picturesque.

Utah locals, where else would you suggest exploring in the area? I’d love your ideas!
