For me, Sundays are always a great day for journaling and reflecting and today while I was journaling I realized what a whirlwind this summer has been! I truly cannot believe it’s coming to an end so soon. Where does the time go, honestly? I love everything about summer but I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t beyond excited for some fall clothes and a change in the temp. Bring on the college football games too!
August is our birthday month and August 3rd (Will’s birthday) is arguably my favorite day of the year! We both worked the whole day but we spent the evening surrounded by good friends and a pickleball tournament in his parent’s backyard. My favorite kind of summer night.
On the weekend of Will’s birthday, we went to Ed Sheeran in Las Vegas which was an INCREDIBLE CONCERT! He is truly so talented and I can’t believe he could play all of that BY HIMSELF. If he ever comes to an area near you, GO SEE HIM. Worth every penny. We actually booked these tickets back in March when his new album was recently released. Much anticipated for sure!
After the concert, I realized that I really wanted to be with my family up in Bear Lake for Raspberry days. They kept sending pictures of everyone together in our family group message and my heart was longing to be up there! So we drove the length of the entire state of Utah and got there by 2 pm the next day haha. I was a little nervous to go up there because I knew it would be the place I would miss Poppy the absolute most but I realized now was a good time to go up and just feel it all with all my family up there.
The second we turned in the canyon and I saw the water I just started bawling. I truly still can’t believe he’s gone but I feel so grateful I can now go up to Bear Lake and feel him so close to me! On Sunday morning I braced myself and walked alone up to the crash site where the car rolled. Exactly 1.7 miles away from our cabin.. so close. It was such an incredible time for me to just sit and feel it all… woof.
I also found my new favorite restaurant recently. VESSEL KITCHEN in Park City. I love everything about it.
I love everything about them too.
And last Wednesday we dropped off Will’s little brother Jake to serve a full-time mission for our church for 2 years! He is serving in CAMBODIA and I can’t wait to hear about all the amazing things he accomplishes out there.
That’s all for now. It’s 10:30 pm which means it’s my bedtime haha. If you’re going to school tomorrow GOOD luck! I’m such a nerd and always LOVED the first day of school.
