I did NOT appreciate the scenery when I lived in Provo*.

me and stella at aspen grove, just up the street from my parents' house
thanks for the picture, les.

It's gorgeous there.
Seriously, look at that mountain!
We had a wonderful time.
Even though Mabel had plans to enroll in school there so we could stay forever,
it is good to be home.

*I lived in Provo for six years while Mike and I attended the BYU. Sadly, I don't think I ever really noticed those humongous mountains. Maybe it is this life in the desert that has given me a better appreciation for it all. Either that, or I am just older and way more mature. :)


  1. So beautiful!!! I just love it!

  2. you are way more mature, for sure. :) we miss you guys. all the way home audrey was asking me "why don't we don't live in utah again?"

  3. SO, SO pretty. Are you going to blow that one up huge for your house? You should!

  4. I think the same thing every time we visit Utah. And Utah County in particular is so much more pretty than Salt Lake County; I definitely did not appreciate it during my years in Provo either. Well, Aaron & I hiked to the top of Mt. Timp so I got a pretty good dose of mountain-appreciation then!

  5. It is beautiful! and i try to appreciate it every day! you and stella look adorable! mom

  6. I agree with you on this one! I have rushed out of my house and taken so many pictures of Timpanogos at sunrise, sunset, with snow, with clouds...I love these mountains. But I still miss my Mesa mountains. I grew up on a dairy fairly close to Red Mountain and a shot of the Superstitions will always make me cry!

  7. This photo is incredible. That was a good idea... you should blow this up enormous for your house. Thanks doe the shout out, sister. You would not believe how my stats jumped from your link.

    It was so great to see you. Thanks for making the time, and let's do it again soon soon soon!


  8. I think you have to move away to fully appreciate Utah. When I looked at Leslie's pictures I thought, "Wow- that's gorgeous." But I still hate living here!

  9. what a beautiful picture.
