sometimes the world hands you a perfect night. and sometimes that happens to be right before you’re moving, and I feel like that’s not all that fair, right?? we went to Salt Lake last Friday with no objective in mind, and I think we were handed one of those solid nights.
aaaand here are the stories of the evening, told in verbs! (because I don’t feeel like stringing it together into an eloquent story tbh, haha. but sometimes story pieces are fun?)
SNEAKING // we accidentally snuck into the back of mass at the cathedral. (mass? a mass? grammar??) and by accidentally I mean that we happened to be there when mass was going on haha. and by sneaking I mean we just walked in and tiptoed to a bench on the creaky wood floor so we didn’t make much noise. Mass was super cool, actually!
DROOLING // over the Avenues. and tree-lined streets in general.
SPELLING // Me: “does capitol have an ‘a’ or an ‘o’?” / Kenzie: “it has both!” … That made me laugh more than it probably should have. & now I think I’ll always remember how to spell capitol.
WATCHING // this family on the capitol lawn was blowing bubbles with a giant bubble wand and it was straight magic. there was a little kid who would run after the bubbles every single time, and we decided that’s the epitome of childhood joy. and we also decided that if you’re dating someone who’s outgrown chasing bubbles, you probably shouldn’t date them.
it was a good night, that’s all. that part of Utah doesn’t feel like Utah, and I don’t know why I haven’t spent more time up there (in Salt Lake, and especially up by the capitol) this whole time I’ve lived here.
and here are some pictures!
[this is a story of not quite being in the same social class as everyone else in park city]
yesterday afternoon we went to Park City, just for exploration’s sake.
by the time we got there, we were hungry. so we walked up and down Main Street, examining menus outside restaurants, and it quickly became apparent that the majority of the Park City visitors must have a different idea than we did about what a sandwich is worth. either that, or Park City sandwiches must be have other-worldly flavor. idk which one it is.
so we settled on ice cream for pre-dinner.
then we walked through a neighborhood and climbed a mountain.
then we drove 15 minutes to find a McDonalds for real dinner.
then we went to a park commandeered by high schoolers.
then we drove home.
conclusion of the day: it’s definitely not that Park City is too cool for us. I’m pretty sure it’s the other way around.
(btw, did you know there’s a Banksy in Park City? so rad!)
*cue photo dump for posterity’s sake*
^^^ Ya you read that title. So here’s a list of things. I’m not even putting a picture.
- Natalie Jean just blogged again after a year away, and it’s everything I wanted it to be for her first post back.
- I decided that I’m going to buy myself a bathrobe when I move into my new apartment in KC. Because somehow a bathrobe seems like a token of adulthood? Or at least a token of adulthood living in an apartment on your own? Or at least a token of some form of luxury? So ya, bathrobe.
- I’ve spent 3 months being sad and sentimental and nostalgic for Utah, and I think I’m done being sad and I just want to move already.
- I went to a concert the other night and I decided that I would definitely be okay with dating someone in a band. Long hair, artistic flair, some well-placed tattoos…yeah I promise I’m not kidding, I’d be wayyyy into that. Ok maybe not the leather pants. But all the rest of it, where do I sign up??? Anyone know any temple-worthy kids who check off the “rockstar” box?
- Dan Mace on Casey Neistat’s vlogs these days MAKES MY LIFE SO HAPPY. Like, can I order one of him to bring to KC with me to be my friend before I make friends haha? [watch THIS ONE and THIS ONE especially]
- Whaaaaat do I even want this blog to be? Do I want it to be anything? Do I need it to be anything?
That’s all! K bye!
- looking at the effortlessly cool Instagram feeds of women working in the ad industry in NYC and killing it at life.
- the app “Hyperspektiv” … solidly the best $0.99 I’ve spent all day. but I’m also easily entertained. basically there are about 20 different interactive filters that you can use to distort your photos or videos so you can live our your dreams of being artsy. [AM I AN ART DIRECTOR YET???]
- getting the perfect text placement and color for my IG story about how cool Hyperspektiv is.
so basically I need to get off the internet hahaha.
