I had the unfortunate opportunity to go home last weekend for the funeral of a friend (I will sum that up in a post when I can better wrap my head around it). Which meant that my kids got a 3 day (5 total) vacation from school to visit Grandma and Salt Lake City. My kids, specifically my oldest has a strong attachment to that city… both have a strong attachment to Grandma!
The day after the funeral My wife and I took them on a trip down Memory lane. We visited some of our favorite haunts.
The University of Utah where my wife went to school and where I worked for almost 10 years.
KCPW The Public Radio Station I worked for ( and truth be told really miss it)
The Salt Lake City Public Library, one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. Our kids could spend entire days there.
The Apple Store I helped open at the Gateway shopping Center.
The Discovery Gateway children’s Museum at the Gateway.
We loved our life in Salt lake City, and every time we go back I am nostalgic for that time… and yet as I have moved forward I look around and am happy with the place I find myself, the growth I have experienced , new friends, new experiences, and I know that one day I will look back and be nostalgic for this place and time for it’s own merits.
I love where I have been, I am happy where I am, and I look forward to adventures yet to come!
