New Year’s Eve in Ogden- Countdown to 2017!!

I can hardly believe another year has gone by. That makes six years as a resident for Ogden for me!  It’s been a while ride, and I am so glad I found this town to call home.

Here are just a few things I am thankful for this past year…

  • The friends I have made and grown closer to, who have held me up and cheered me on.
  • My best friend Amber, our memories I will cherish forever.
  • My family and how much these darn kids have grown and how much they have learned in Ogden’s incredible charter schools
  • My fabulous job working for Even Stevens. Seeing how they impact local communities has been an inspiration and motivation to be better and DO better.
  • Ogden Twilight, some of my best summer memories happened here. Thank you to everyone who puts this incredible event together.
  • Ogden Farmer’s market so feeding me fabulous foods throughout the summer and early fall.
  • All the people who run non-profits, charities, businesses and events who make this town unique and beautiful.
  • Every cafe in Ogden for fueling me through the year, seriously, every cafe is a gem!
  • My neighbors, the Jacksons, for always waving to me when I pass by and striking up a conversation when I walk by. I truly treasure those moments.
  • Every person who has stopped me to say they recognize me from this blog, I am socially awkward and never know what to say at the moment. What I wanted to tell you is that these moments fuel me, feed my soul and make me feel like I truly have a purpose, and for that, I am forever thankful.
  • To the sweet people of this town who have made me feel at home. I grew up on the road,  bouncing from town to town and I never knew what It felt like to call somewhere home until now. Thank you.
  • For every person who told me not to give up, who said thank you, who told me I mattered.
