bek & the great salt lake

She lived in Oregon and I lived in Arizona
She lives in Arizona and I live in Idaho
Somehow we find each other in the Great Salt Lake, eating waffles and telling secrets
Salt Lake is our place, our secret tree fort of adulthood
I love it
And her.

(and some things I cannot, will not, and don't ever want to forget about this weekend: the "i-slept-in-till-8-o-clock" dance. giving a homeless man our uneaten gourmet pizza and watching him do a little dance as he ate it. the bearded masseuse. "Bake-ah." The see-saw table. Proposing marriage to a Belgium. THE MACHINE GUN. Hushed whispers in the temple (trying to figure out how the heck to get into the temple.) Utah being too righteous for Thai food. "You should turn your sign off then...." Squirting root beer all over the table. Driving around the foot hills.{Just to name a few.})

I REALLY hope it was Bekah behind the wheel in SLC or else I would bet my children that you went the wrong way on a few one way streets. haha :) I HAVE driven with you there before after all!

Love all the pictures by the way. Especially the one of Bekah. So cute!

Oh, sweet sisters. I sure miss reading Bekah's blog, so it's fun to see her make an appearance on yours. That picture of you two is beautiful - obviously b/c you guys are beautiful. :)

I love these photos. So so beautiful. I am a SLC lover too. Like you, it's mainly because of all the great people that I go there with.
