Trip to Salt Lake City


The week before Christmas, my mom and I went to Salt Lake City to visit my sisters and to watch Sarah in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert.  We packed our three days full of fun things.  



I've never seen Temple Square during Christmas time so this was such a treat.  Pictures don't do the beauty of it any justice.  I'm not a fan of snow, but Utah has the pretty kind and gets rid of it from the streets almost immediately, so it was nice to enjoy for a few days.



My sister, Jessica, along with teaching at an elementary school in the area, is a yoga instructor at Corepower.  I took one of her classes, and she was amazing.  I wish I could take from her every day.  At the end during meditation, she puts a cool cloth on your forehead and massages your temples.  So awesome.



We went and watched a rehearsal on the University of Utah's campus with Sarah, ate yummy breakfasts at Kneaders Bakery and tasty dinners at The Lion House, and did all the touristy Temple Square things.  



And the main event!  Sarah's performance.  What an exciting performance to be part of and she was wonderful.  ^this is the backstage door for performers...(I wanted to go in so badddd!!!)  



Our flight home was supposed to get in at 9pm Friday night, but we didn't get in until 330am Saturday morning.  Ahhhh.  That was rough.  

I wish my sisters lived closer, but the time we spent together with my mom was so much fun. Happy New Year!!

Love this!!! The square looks gorgeous. I was watching the performance on tv and pulled up your Instagram post to try and find her face ... lol and then I realized I didn't even know what she did in the performance. It was amazing! I love listening to choirs during the holidays.
