A Night in White at the Cape – 2017 JLO Spring Gala

Soon after I moved back to Ogden 5 years ago I fell deeply in love with our fair city. Yes, the mountains and miles and miles of trails are beautiful. We have some amazing restaurants and theatres and coffee shops. We enjoy the small-town feel with all the conveniences of larger cities. However, what I fell the hardest for was the people. I grew up in a small town not far from Ogden that shall remain nameless. I’ve lived in Salt Lake...

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile.

A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...

October in O-Town

[slideshow_deploy id=’7510571′]   As an Ogden native, I have a special place in my heart October in my city. As autumn approaches, the city is shrouded in colors, mysteries, and festivities that both enchant the spirit and warm the soul. Early in the month the mountainsides begin to turn soft shades crimson, amber and copper. The color creeps, slow and clandestine down the jagged slopes and into the valley. Along the...

Bloggers Night at Scruds Gourmet Grub & Liquid Canvas

**Have you ever spent hours passionately writing a post only to have your computer crash and you lose it all? Yeah, that happened to me today and after sobbing  into my coffee for a good hour,  I sucked it up and wrote it again.  I wish I could remember all the little quips and details I wrote the first time around, sigh… Still, I hope you enjoy my shortened recap of that fabulous night.** Earlier this week Historic 25th street...
