((((Home Show))))

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the St. George Parade of Homes! We took a couple of years off because it was getting kinda old going every single year, and I'm way glad. There are new cool things again. My favorite today wasn't really anything special technically, I guess, but it was just decorated so perfectly, not to froofy, or trying to hard. I would love to have just bought it exactly like it was furnishings and all. It was really open and had amazing views with tons of floor to ceiling windows everywhere. The master suite was divine, good textures and just really peaceful. All the cabinetry was stunning, dark woods with light walls and carpets, it was beautiful. There was also a Frank Lloyd Wright-ish one, totally symetrical with tons of art glass windows and craftsman woodwork. That one was cool, but it was surrounded by this UGLY cinderblock wall. I couldn't get over how stupid the person who decided that would be okay was. eww! I think it's pretty clear that Matt & I want to have a place down here one day. He loves the Entrada area with it's snow canyon views and all the red rocks. It is really so incredibly beautiful. Plus, St. George is just such an active place, everyone is always out jogging, biking, rollerblading or golfing. It's 70 degrees today, and it's February and we're going swimming. It is perfect. We could stay down here from like October to April and then live in Bountiful or Layton for the rest of the year. Yeah, that would be ideal. Maybe when our kids are grown. Of course, we wouldn't be the first to do that. There are so many freaking old people down here. It's a little insane. Well I think I am going to have a nap while Sawyer does. I got up early today & went to Golds, so it's about time.

Hi neighbor! (I can call you that now because we live in the same city!) I am glad you are back and I am glad you had such a wonderful time in St. George. Reed and I were talking last night about how we would like to retire to St. George and have another house on the beach somewhere exotic. Yeah, we'll have to see about that when we're 70! I miss you and hope I can see you more often. Have a wonderful day! xo-Love you lots, Kierstin
