this BREAKS my heart. i love the provo tabernacle, it is what makes downtown provo special. just wednesday i was up in provo and as caleb and i drove past the tabernacle we talked about how much we love it and all the cool things we've seen there. i remember going to stake conference there for a saturday evening session, i remember one year when i lived in provo and had season tickets to the utah valley symphony there, i remember seeing gospel groups perform there, folk group, the messiah, and i remember how i always love looking at the gorgeous minerva teichart painting that graced the back wall. this is such a huge loss and i'm so sad about it. :(
on a happier note, my aunt lucy, who makes the most awesome homemade soap, has a bunch of new soap and is offering a super deal on some free soap if you order 10 bars!!! seriously, this stuff is the bomb. smells good, lathers great, looks pretty and is good for you. buy it.

all i want for christmas is . . .


still proud it's my alma mater

every year sarah lawrence sends out a pretty rad holiday card. they always warm my heart and help me remember my undergrad days and the eternal push from slc to take your own path. i'm still glad i chose to go there, and where that path has led me.

don't mess with three girls in texas

hi folks. hope you all had a swell turkey day. i sure did! my good friend lindsey and i went to visit our other good friend kate who lives in austin, tx (where she has a super awesome life as a writer at utaustin!!!) and had loads of fun. austin is really such a nice city. i'd heard that. and it proved true. it had tons of cool things to do (like eat fresh doughnuts topped with maple glaze and bacon, or go to a movie theater where you could order food at any point during the movie and they'd bring it to you, a FABULOUS bookstore, lots of great food stores, the best knitting store i've ever been too, lots of great vintage shops, and good friends) but it felt like a small town at the same time. real nice. so here are some pics from the adventure. thanks to pack and kate for a most excellent holiday!!! remember the alamo bathrooms!!!
