Hello fellow bloggers,
I haven’t written a personal note in quite a while and thought it was finally time to do so. First of all, let me apologize for not posting the monthly writing prompts for December. I have been so caught up in my own little world these days that I completely forgot to post them. I didn’t even realize I’d forgotten until yesterday, so I thought I’d just do a personal post this month instead. As all of us know, the past two years have been crazy. But during the days of covid, my life hasn’t changed too much.
I’ve still been homeschooling as I have been for the last 15 years, and the only big difference is that I’ve moved twice since the pandemic started. I had to downsize each time I moved and feel lighter now that I don’t have as much stuff weighing me down. The first move went well, and I ended up in Virginia. I loved all of the historical aspects of Virginia but hated the traffic that I couldn’t avoid no matter how far down the road I went.
Fortunately, I lived within walking distance to all the stores and businesses that I needed access to, so I never really had to drive anywhere while I was there. But after 18 months in Virginia, I was glad to break free, and I’ve now ended up in the one place I’ve most wanted to be, and that place is Utah.
Ever since I visited Mt. Zion National Park seven years ago, I’ve wanted to come back here, and I haven’t been disappointed with my decision. I live within walking distance of some amazing hiking trails, and I’m within a 30 – 60 min drive to several state and national parks. And that’s what I love most about being here; I’m finally able to enjoy nature and be outside as often as I want to be. Here are some recent pictures from my hikes. Isn’t it beautiful here…
