UTAH UPDATE


It's day 3 of Sundance for me, and boy has it been exhausting! Pretty much all day, everyday since being here I have just wanted to sleep but Sundance has definitely kept me on my toes with all the celebrity site seeing and mingling with directors. Honestly, if you get the chance to volunteer next year you definitely should! Unfortunately I have already let myself down with my picture taking. But in my defense we are strictly not allowed to take pictures while on shift, boo! In the meantime I leave you with a few pictures from the mister and I's time on a giant frozen lake. These pictures do not do it justice, it was simply gorgeous, sunny and wide open spaces for miles. And when people told me it was going to be cold, they were not lying. My little Seattle body is not used to 6 degree temperatures. Only two more days left here in Utah, and I definitely want to make them count!

P.S. The winner of last weeks giveaway can be found HERE. Make sure to check out if you are a winner!

  13. i hoped i would run into you while we were up at park city on saturday. sadly i didn't. have you popped into olive and tweed, the shop on main street? it's beautiful and a absolute must! also try the aged balsamic vinegar above the mary jane's store (mary jane's is also a fun place to shop) the chocolate one is super yummy!
