Summer fun at Cherry Hill!

Cherry Hill is a favorite family tradition that has lasted 40+ years. What's the secret sauce to getting 100+ people together every year? Maybe it's the delicious slices of pie on Saturday night, maybe it's the races down Cardiac Canyon, or maybe it's the campsite games and conversations. Whatever the reason, I am grateful to grandparents who have gathered us to together at Cherry Hill since I was a baby. And now I take my own babies! This family-friendly place is nestled in Davis County. Read more [...]

The Last Descent

Movie Review: The Last Descent

  Amidst a box office full of fanciful stories and fight scenes, it's refreshing to be exposed to real-life stories. At first glance, The Last Descent is the story of young father and medical student, John Jones, and the tragic Nutty Putty Cave rescue attempt in Utah. That is what I expected. What I saw was so much more - a raw and real look at life, relationships, and our individual defining moments. The Last Descent is an equally heart wrenching and heartwarming introspective movie Read more [...]

Shopping Main Street – Girls Night Out at My Sister’s Closet Boutique

One of the first things I fell in love with in Spanish Fork is Main Street. I love a smaller town and I am so happy that I ended up in one that has twinkle lights on Main Street for Christmas and a Farmer's Market at City Hall in the summer. Sounds like a scene out of Gilmore Girls, right? There's something I love about shopping and supporting local. We've had our share of stops on Main Street this year from checking out the soap-making demo at Sego Lily soap to dropping off donations at Tabitha's Read more [...]
