I love this time of year so much.

You know here in Utah, the leaves are changing colors.
I love this time of year so very much.
Last week my brother Andrew, my sister Lucy and I planned a 3 mile 
hike up Rock Canyon, which is near my home.
The leaves are not in full colorful force yet, but will in the next coming weeks.
I often think about how much I love Utah- especially my hometown 
and a few surrounding areas.
I love it because its home to me.  It's where I most comfortable.  
I love it because it's simple, and gorgeous. 
 We are surrounded by mountains, good people, and traditions.
I always knew I wanted to raise my family in Utah, particularly Provo.
I love Provo because it's accepting to big families, like the 
one I grew up in and the one I am raising.
 To us three, this is home and probably will be until we die.

The cool autumn air probably should be a perfume,
It's musky, smokey, fresh, clean, and earthy...its pretty much amazing.
I am hoping (besides my daily Y hike) to hike a new trail each 
week and soak in as much of this autumn goodness as possible.
Then Andrew cut me some colorful leaves and hiked the whole way down 
the trail holding them.  What a brother hu!?
They look fabulous on my dining room table.
