There is Beauty All Around

So there are many things I will miss about living downtown. One of those things being my walk to work. We live close to City Creek Park, and so many days I walk past that park and I can't help but notice how beautiful it is. This morning was one of those mornings. I just had to take some pictures.

These picturs don't do it justice. The way the snow clung to the branches was just pretty. Snow may be unwelcome these days. I, like so many people, just want spring to come. Snow is cold. It's wet. It's slippery, but there is no denying it's beautiful.

On other news, we get to find out what baby is on March 4th! We are so excited!!!


  • I'm still getting a bit of morning sickness, which is the pits
  • I found out today shortbread cookies give me heartburn, so I am staying away from them.
  • Chocolate gives me heartburn too...but I'm not staying away from it.
  • My belly is becoming more bumpy. Which makes me already wearing maternity clothes most the time more justifiable.
  • My funny dreams keep me entertained at night.
  • I wake up frequently durning the night to empty my full bladder, poke Sam for his snoring, and to eat a snack. In fact, I keep snacks on my night stand for that very reason.
  • I am 93% sure I felt baby this morning.

So life is pretty great right now.


  1. yaaaa!! i love this- i cant believe you felt the baby! and i am so proud of you for not staying away from chocolate. good. for. you.

  2. You felt the baby? How exciting! When I was pregnant, I didn't think I felt the baby until I was 24 weeks. But, now that I know for sure it was her, I'm pretty sure I could feel her before that and just didn't know it was her for sure. I'm glad you're moving closer to us! So excited :), although I completely understand why you will miss it down there. I LOVE downtown!

  3. Ah! You felt the baby?! That is so exciting. Living downtown really is fun. But it's hard to have a family in the city. Thanks for the pictures, it's nice to know what being outside looks like lately ;)
