sometimes i still get sad when i think of my old Utah life.
i miss all of my friends there terribly.
i miss all of my family there terribly.
i miss being close to everyone.
i miss Cafe Rio and Bajio and Zupa's.
i miss being able to drive an hour to have some warm black bean soup over white rice... and better yet, a warm hug from my favorite arms.
i miss having a dollar theatre...or a dollar anything.
i miss seeing those little steeples on every corner. and those temples on every bend.
i miss running into people i knew from my high school psychology class with Miss Coburn or from the street i grew up on since i was 10.
i miss that Utah life.
a whole lot.
but then, i have days like today...
where i started my morning with a run...
took the girls to the park to play with friends...
and had a picnic on a blanket in our backyard...all without wearing gloves, hats or puffy suits.
because it's 65 degrees outside.
you heard me, 65 degrees. in january.
i guess i could get used to this.
p.s. i'm so happy it's Wednesday. such good TV on Wednesdays. agreed? can't wait to chomp down my homemade oreos and sip on some diet 7 up while laughing at Phil Dunphy and some ridiculous American Idol auditions.
