My Alpine Home


We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for four years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Just Be-Cuz

Thursday evening I headed to Midway for an annual Fall celebration with my cousin (Cuz) Betty, her two daughters, her daughter-in-law, and my friend Diana. Sometimes I ask myself, "Why do I go to Swiss Days?" We rise early and head to the park hoping to beat the madness of all the crowds and to see what new creations we might come across this year. As many of you know, I really don't need another thing to decorate for Fall or Halloween. For some uncanny reason that's what seems to tempt me the most. One booth had the cutest crazy looking Halloween cat. I was so tempted that I left to go get me a diet coke, thinking that might take my mind off of it. Then Diana told me that there were only two of them and that a lady and her friend bought them both. Lucky for me they beat me to it. The atmosphere is fun and the food is great but after listening to that Swiss music all day we are definately ready to leave by around 2 in the afternoon. By then the park is swarming with people and the lines to buy anything are so long. The overnight stay in the hotel is always fun visiting with everyone and a few laughs are always guaranteed. So when I ask myself "Why?" I simply say Just be-CUZ!
p.s. I vowed not to buy Fall or Halloween, I caved and bought 1 new Halloween decor to hang on my new door.
