This weeks SPT was no challenge, no props, no tours of your hometown, just you!

Today has been one of those crazy busy days! The day before we leave town, seems to usually go like this. We are headed to Utah tomorrow for the next 8 days. I can't wait!!! The one part that makes me feel a little sad is that Ben, Nathan, and Desirae wont be joining us. They had commitments, school, work etc. that they couldn't get out of. Hopefully next time we will all be together! Today has been filled with washing, packing, shopping, etc. This morning I had Sarah take this picture of me at one of my favorite places... the porch. This porch is where I read the daily mail. I love sitting out there reading the mail, and catalogues. The weather has been a little to warm for this the past month. I miss my quiet time. The porch is also a great place to hold wonderful conversations. I also love to sit out on the porch to watch thunderstorms, and monsoons in the summer.

Your porch is amazing and looks so relaxing. What's up with the 118 weather today? I am not sure I am ready for that. Yikes!!

You are so beautiful! And that is a great front porch!! I love the front porch as well! It was one of my "criteria" when we were looking for a new house.

Have a great trip!

You guys are all go-go-go...or at least that's how it appears from my perspective. When things calm down after girl's camp & trips we'll have to lunch again.

Cute photo! I also love the front porch, but TOO HOT right now here in Tallahassee, FL! We are currently experiencing the "air you can wear" with the humidity so high! Have a blast in Utah! Went there in January- it is so beautiful! We'll miss your posts, so be sure and check in upon your return with photos!

Wish I could sit next to you on that beautiful porch! I think a tall glass of ice cold lemon aid is all we would need to make it perfect!

I am so sad I can't see your picture of you on the porch. I really wanted one of those when we built this house but it didn't work. It would be so fabulous to have.

Have fun in Utah! It is really hot here also, so I don't know how much releif you will get here.

Your picture disappeared and I'm dying to see the porch after reading all the comments! (that happened to one of my pics this week too and I had to redo it)

Wow, everyone and their dog is going to Utah this week or next. We are on Tuesday and I've read numerous other blogs of people going. Have a fun trip!!!
