cleaning out the attic at our old
family home, which was just
officially sold a few months ago…
(we found some pretty incredible treasures like this 3x life-size
poster from my dad’s
gubernatorial campaign)

the best being a beautiful live nativity.

four of my eight siblings came to my parents’ home in park city for christmastime this year. i have so loved being with them and being home. every time i come back to utah i feel incredibly grateful for and so adoring of where i came from.


  1. I love This Is The Place at Christmastime! Looks like you are having a nice Christmas break!

    I'm so sad I didn't get to see you in California. I didn't get to see my bro in law & a few other people too. 2.5 days was simply not enough time in that fabulous area. I love it & I can't wait to go back someday soon & explore with you! McCaye happened to text me when I was heading to Fisherman's Warf & she jumped in her car & met us there which was so nice. Next time I need to stay for a week I think :)

    PS I'm going to utah in February, any chance you'll be there??? :)
