I’ve always considered myself a NYC girl at heart because A) I love the bright lights and the constant buzz of energy, and B) I never learned how to drive so I simply would not survive in the suburbs. When I started joining Matt and his family (and happy to call them my in-laws now!) in Utah for the holidays when we were but a wee couple, this city girl was completely thrown. Cows in a field just down the block? Mountains all around us? Three Walmarts within a 15 minute drive radius??
At first, I couldn’t make sense of it all – so this is life outside New York?? On previous visits, I would resign myself to house arrest (although 2 weeks spent eating, sleeping, and cuddling with dogs to your heart’s content isn’t really terrible at all) and foolishly thought there wasn’t much to do out there. But oh how I was mistaken. This winter, I set out to make the most of our time and discovered a completely new and beautiful side of Utah.
