Vote For Me? I love Salt Lake City

You can still enter the Luna Protein giveaway here - low entries & 5 winners = a good chance to win! Ends Friday night.


I am from Salt Lake City, Utah, and can't imagine a better place to grow up. When I got married to a California boy & moved to Orange County, I missed Utah. Not only my family, but the mountains, the change of seasons, yes, even the snowy winters. The way we ended up back in Utah was a total fluke - Marc was recruited by a company here for a great job totally out of the blue. They didn't know he had any ties to Utah or that his wife was from here. It just came at the right time & we were happy to take the fork in the road of life.

Utah is an amazing place - the people are nice, the weather is great, it has a great restaurant & music scene, and the mountains! How can you not mention the mountains? The view from our upstairs is breathtaking:

This summer I was excited to be part of the Salt Lake City Summer Crew - a program put on by the SLC Visitors Bureau to promote Salt Lake & all the fun stuff you can do here in the summer. Everyone thinks of Utah as a winter destination (well, we do have the best snow on earth!) but the summers are pretty amazing, too.

We spent the past 12 weeks doing challenges & trekking around to different locations around the city to discover the fun & different things our city offers. The boys & I have had a great time finding out about new stuff as well as rediscovering some of our old favorite things to do in Salt Lake.

Our final challenge was to create a video to highlight our favorite thing about Salt Lake & to get people to vote on it. I'd LOVE to win & would really appreciate your vote - I've had a great time this summer spreading the love about Salt Lake City & winning would cap off an amazing summer of fun!

You can watch the video & vote for me here on Facebook (you can vote once per day!)

Thanks so much!
