Places To Be: Amangiri Resort

One of our favorite things to do is talk about all the places we want to go together. When I saw photos of the Amangiri Resort I did some research, and to my surprise it’s in Canyon Point, Utah. Canyon Point is only about an eight hour drive from us, so this will have to be something we can add to our wish list. Utah is incredible. We get the best of both worlds & I am so grateful that we live in such a beautiful place. For a video tour of the resort go here

The Beauty Takes The Gold

After sharing the rant from hell I knew I just might regret, I read your comments & learned to breathe again. With the love & support of all of you I got through the hardest day Logan has thrown at me thus far. Those deep breathes resulted in this recent discovery: We can either break down or break through, and like one of my amazing readers said, we always, always have a choice. One of my readers whom I adore also commented on that post & gave me some food for thought…

“Sometimes I sit and watch the emotion unfold like I used to watch clouds form and unform until they passed from my living room window,” he said. “Doing that reduces the potency of the feeling but also helps clear your head and provide you sometimes with great insights. It seems at first a very zen thing or stoic but it will relax you and help. – just my two cents” Well, your two cents prevented this lil’ lady from losin’ my mind up in here. (Click the link, it will make more sense) Thank you Mr. Marymuthafuckingpoppins :)

Shortly after I spent some time unfolding, Leslie (Andys sister) invited me over to watch the Superbowl with their family. Such little things seem to get by without recognition, so I want to say thank you. I adore the Lundbergs & cherish the time I get to spend with them. Being with them brings me comfort that feels familiar to the kind I find with my own family, which is something my heart has been absolutely yearning for.

The lesson I learned in this mini-meltdown of mine is this: The on-going battle with my emotions was the root to a weed that can spread like a wild fire. But who am  I to choose what is a flower & what may be a weed? Despite the flaws in my situation I believe the beauty takes the gold. I did not see this at first, of course, but because of my readers, the Lundbergs and my loved ones I opened my eyes to what I have, not what I need.

It has been a little over a month since I loaded my car & made the trip that I had been waiting for for years. The transition scared the shit out of me… but I knew that I was on my way to a new home where I would grow & expand my ability to cope as a young woman in an old & very fast world. Consider this a big fat smooch & long hug from me. Some say strangers cannot make a difference, but I feel we have a connection, and all of you have indeed made a difference in my life… an unforgettable one.

First Comes Love

Andy surprised me & stayed in Salt Lake for dinner before he & his dad made their way home from their trip to Oregon. We went to one of our favorite restaurants Market Street. We met at The New Yorker, the restaurant downstairs that is owned by the same people. It made my week!! I was so happy to see him. Being apart has brought us even closer, and even though I tend melt into a puddle when he isn’t here, I know it is worth the wait. The countdown begins, I’ll be moving to Logan at the beginning of the year! We got the house we wanted & couldn’t be more thrilled. I am so ready to start my life with my best friend & love of my life.

 

 

I hope all of you have had a great day! Until next time, xoxo
