This has been a melancholy road trip. This month would have marked my father's ninetieth birthday and just as we were packing for the much anticipated Utah trip, Lee received word that one of his dearest friends had passed away.We decided to move forward with our trip because the loss of a loved one makes it even more clear that we must enjoy each and every moment.
Utah is a whole new world for us. We were asked, "You're not from these parts are you?" and "Why Utah?" The truth is that Lee got a wild hair. Why not just keep traveling on Interstate 15 pass Las Vegas? St. George is an easy 1 1/2 hours from Vegas. The plan was to stop in Vegas at the Costco for gas. See what we found.
Then onto St. George where it is HOT...
First stop..Pebbles in my Pocket Super nice people. We came away with some sparkly ideas for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Lee strikes again.
Every trip includes cupcakes. Twentyfive Main.
There are locations all over the country but this was our very first yummy experience. We had chocolate but next time we will try vanilla.
Farmer's Market on Saturday. Where we purchased homemade caramels.
Favorite shop in St. George. Urban Renewal...our people. Totally cool with a vibe.
