Salt Lake Farmer's Market

I am probably one of the luckiest girls on the planet. What I lack in some areas, I am greatly blessed and overcompensated in others, like having amazing friends. Meet Lindsey, the mastermind behind Green Apple Photography. Isn't she completely adorable? I also adore her little Lucy just as much. We had a little date a few weeks ago to the Salt Lake Farmer's Market . Can you believe I have lived in Salt Lake for almost 30 years and I have never been? For shame.

Lindsey taught me the ins and outs of navigating the Farmer's Market. You have to scope out the fresh fruits, photograph them, then move onto the fresh cut flowers, then the baked goods. Take a trail around all of the fun hand crafted item booths like the amazing hand crafted pillows that I fell in love with (see above) I got to meet Tara, the mastermind behind Modernality Pillows and will be contacting her soon to have her make some for my bedroom. I can't wait. I never expected to find something like that at the Farmer's Market! Who knew?

We then rounded the bend to Sweet Salt Lake in which Lindsey advised me was -the- best mint limeade in the world. I was a total skeptic I assure you. I was a sheltered child. The limeade was DIVINE I tell you. I even talked Lindsey into going back for seconds. (Bring lots of cash, you will want more.) Then we ended the morning with a Ruby Snap Cookie and a sit on the shady grass and enjoyed the bagpipes and people watching.

Thank you for the fun and relaxing and rejuvenating morning Lindsey. I can't wait to take my kids for their first experience at the Salt Lake Farmer's Market this Saturday.

An Afternoon at Deer Creek Resevoir

I am very blessed to have some amazing friends in my life. Truly, I have to wonder sometimes how I got so lucky to have found these wonderful people. Holly and her husband Toby are no exception. We have known them for almost five years now when I began working with Holly photographing weddings. We still work together and get the chance to chat via Skype every single day. I can honestly say the day drags when I don't get to talk to my friend Holly.

Toby recently got an itch to get a boat. The hunt was on, and they found the perfect one. Now weekends are spent enjoying the lake and all the fun that can be had, or not in my case as I rediscovered how deathly afraid of boats I am. I can be pulled by them just fine, but get me inside and I squeal like a little girl. Go figure. Poor Toby putting up with driving a snails pace for me. Thanks friend.

We rented a Sea-doo for the day and my kids had so much fun on the 'wet ski'. I still giggle over that one.

We ended the day on the beach with the kids while the boys loaded up the watercraft. It was complete bliss to watch the kids interact, enjoy the water and the sand and just be kids. The closest thing to a beach we have in Utah.

I'll take more any day. Thanks for the fun day friends.
