I've never seen Utah so green-- ever (and that's saying something, considering the fact that we just spent a month in green, green Missouri). Tay and I spent at least part of every day this week up in the mountains. We fished a little, hiked a little, took some photos of old friends, and sought out places we'd never been before. Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year; I'm a sucker for the crisp air, golden leaves and fields speckled with pumpkins. But this year, summer is putting up quite the fight. I've come to the conclusion that there's not much better than the smell of pine trees on the mountain side as they sparkle beneath the setting summer sun. There's not much better than the heat of summer making you forget what it feels like to be cold. There's not much better than evening barbecues, befriending strangers on long afternoon hikes, and a the kiss of the warm summer breeze. Fall has always been my favorite time of the year, but this year, summer is putting up quite the fight.

We had an unexpected two weeks of "us time" due of an array of technical difficulties linked to our broken-down, abandoned car (that conveniently got picked up from the middle of Colorado today). Or, in other words, we ended up with two empty weeks to fill with adventure before we make the move down to St. George. We like it when we get to spend every waking moment together, so it's been really nice! I'm excited to move down to the southern Utah red rocks, though.

I could keep rambling about random stuff at this point, but I'm just going to stop where I'm at and call it good.
