Soundtrack to my Summer

As the weather begins to cool off and I get away with wearing long sleeves all day and can't float down the river because it's too cold, I realize that I am not ready for summer to leave me. 

This summer was fabulous.

Not everything was perfect.
But it sure did have some fabulous moments. 
I was listening to the radio and thinking about all the songs I listened to the most this summer.
So there's one for every picture.

All This and Heaven Too by Florence and the Machine

Lounging in Parker's hammock and reading The Magic Barrel. 

Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen

I went to 7 Peaks A LOT with my Pass of All Passes. 
Easily the best money I spent all summer.
It's closed until next summer and I miss it so bad.
I just want to go back right now

Springsteen by Eric Church

My early morning drives to work were incredible.
I did work a lot, but it was great.
I love my job.

Niagra Falls by Sara Evans

We went to Strawberry Reservoir where Derik did some fishing.

anything Mariah Carey and Beyonce. These crawdads had soul!

We were more successful catching crawdads, though.
They really like bacon.
The best moment was when Joey wrapped his arm in bacon and stuck it in the water.
It worked!

Hell on the Heart by Eric Church

The sky continued to be stunning and made me remember why I love Utah so much.

You're Gonna Love Me by Chris Young
(I made Kenzie play that song for me over and over that night.)

I didn't get to a ton of concerts, but this was a good one. 
Kenzie and I have excited faces to see Jo Dee Messina.
She's still got it. 
What a woman.

One Thing and That's What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction

The Spanish Fork Reservoir was another one of my favorites.
I went there quite a few times.

Red Dirt Road by Brooks and Dunn
(Have you ever tried to keep headphones in your and the driver's ears while on a motorcycle? It's a tough job!)

The best part was perhaps when this boy brought home a motorcycle.
Rides are less fun now that it's getting chilly.

So now it is time for apple cider and pumpkins and tights and HALLOWEEN (my flavorite!)
And normally it is my most enjoyed time of year. 
But this year it is going to have to work to win me over.


  1. One of my favorite Seven Peaks activities was watching people try not to sing to Call Me Maybe when it came on the speakers. Ha.

  2. Of course she's still got it. She will always have it.


Because I love to hear what you think, leave a comment!
