We are moving to California. With a pretty backyard like this and no snow, who could stay away?
We found a cute little house to rent in our price range and we are so excited about it. It's funny because we had just stopped complaining about Utah and were starting to really appreciate it. Thinking about settling down here for good. I guess that's when it's time to go.
We love you, Utah, and everything you stand for. Your CHEAP housing and real estate (man, I might miss that the most), your clean, safe streets. We love all you people here who are exactly like us-- young, recently graduated Mormon families with two kids and so many dreams (of course we love the rest of you who aren't exactly like us, but you are kinda hard to find in Provo). We love how green it has been this summer even though it is a "desert." (Sure, that's because of how much snow we had last winter, but since I don't have to live here for ANOTHER winter, I can now appreciate that snow. Okay, maybe not.)
We will miss Utah. Dearly, dearly. And all our friends who live(d) here. Most of those friends have since moved on to NotUtah and we are finally joining the crowd.
