Time at { h o m e }

The last two weeks have completely flown by for me! I’ve been in Utah hanging out with my favorite people, and preparing for my BIG move. Tomorrow I will officially be living In NYC.


Upon returning from Germany, I was able to see my brother Taylor for the FIRST TIME in two years. That was quite the moment for us both. I had been anticipating it for months.

With a little magic, Kyle was able fly to Utah to spend a few more days with us before heading back to reality. His arrival turned into constant entertainment for the next five days. I was basically forced to adjust to the time change, since he had us on a constant go!


Here are a few activities we had together:

Saturday we floated down the Provo River. All three of my brothers came, as well as his awesome friends. Of course Kyle was the leader of the pack, forming what we called ‘TubeTopia,’ with anyone who happened to float by us. Soon we looked like a giant amoeba traveling swiftly down the canyon. There was constant laughter, major bonding moments and breakthroughs in every form for all of us.

Sunday a few of us took the dogs for a hike. Now when I think ‘hike’ it usually involves a trail of some sort. Oh but that was not the case for us on this fine day! I found myself climbing up the side of a mountain, following the dogs and the most masculine of men. As we reached the top, we experienced the most incredible view of the valley. Sitting on the edge never felt so exhilarating. It was pure bliss.

Monday may have been more of a relaxing day filled with dog parks, friends and studly brothers. At some point we made our way down to Sodalicious for some cool refreshments. Actually if I’m being honest: we may have found ourselves here just about every day. Whoops!




Tuesday Kyle and the guys convinced me to ride up to Mirror Lake, near Wasatch National Forest. Motorcycles normally freak me out but riding on the back of one was pretty darn relaxing. Once we reached our destination, I was in complete awe. The lake was crystal clear, while the trees offered such a calming feeling. It all seemed rather surreal.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, anxious and absolutely thrilled!

Bye for now,
