Marilyn McIldoon

I think wherever you go, good times follow! You are a busy little muggle my dear! Glad you had so much fun, Marilyn


Wow Karla - looks like you had the time of your life in Utah!
The park looks like a wonderland with adventure beckoning at every turn.
I want to roll down the grassy hill with my dolly!!!!
Great photos!!
Shane :))
ps Those paintings are amazing!

Karla, This was fascinating. I love looking in other people's houses!!! Your family looks so nice and fanciful and I sure see the resemblance. I had my brothers here last week and we all went to Harry Potter. Katie and I sobbed. Jud, Mike, Lilah and John...well, no! It was fabulous. It is so hot here and we have had rains that filled our basement today. UGH. Tomorow we are going to Rapid City and the temp. there is 103. We were expecting a break!

Yes, Sugarwings would have loved this!


Love the little dragon statue! Too much fun!

Karen Hess

What beautiful images!! You're so lucky to be able to spend quality time with family. I'm sure your memories are priceless!

Karla, the thing I love about the West is the nice dry weather during the summer. I couldn't handle humidity and bugs. I don't know how you do it.

Your sister-in-laws yard is beautiful! Sugarwings would have certainly kept you on your toes.


Jasmine MacDonald

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! You have spoiled the ending of Harry Potter for me. No point in going to see it now that I know what happens!!!! AAAAGGGGHHHH. Please delete what you wrote (above) about where you cried in the last movie. I am not going to say what you said in case there are people who have yet to 1) read your comment and 2) see the movie.
Sookin' here.
Hugs, Jasmine in Oz.

I can't believe you were here in Utah! How fun it would have been to bump into you, my sister lives in Lehi and we love Thanksgiving point. So glad you had such a great trip!


Hey Karla, this post is so great and I am so glad Aryn and I were able to spend some quality time with you! It was really great getting to know you, and fun watching you roll down the hill with the girls ;)
I'm going to stalk your blog now~!
Feel free to come visit ours :)
Many loves!!!



Oh, it looks like you had a wonderful time with your family. Those colors were amazing! I do admit to loving the whole zero humidity living we have here in the wild west! I can't wait to see photos of your mountains of Birdsong tags.


Beautiful! Sounds like you had an enchanting time!

Those are awesome pictures. The house looks like a beautiful museum. Thanksgiving Island is gorgeous! Utah is a beautiful place. Thank you for sharing those. Looked a wonderland. Love to see the bird song swap tags. all just lovely.

Hi Karla - I am glad you loved Utah. As one of your blog readers (3 yrs+), customers and fans who lives here in the beautiful Salt Lake Valley, I so enjoyed reading your post and nodding.... yep, gotta love Thanksgiving Point. I have dozens of their tulip bulbs (which they sell off every year) to plant this fall. Zero humidity? Yeppers - I love the warm and dry weather. I live near a creek and a large wild area (farm), so I relate to the lovely, calm sounds. And today our skies were crystal blue, just like in your pictures. Next time you come, bring Sugarwings. Maybe we can meet up for some fun shopping and I`ll bring my DGD along for for a playmate. Hugs, Cathy K

Looks like you had a wonderful time! Loved the pictures of the garden, beautiful.


Okay...Now I'm dying to go to Utah! The way you describe it, makes it sound so amazing! To be able to open your windows during the summer....well I can't even imagine it! Very different from Texas for sure!


How do they get that "misty" effect in their pond? I would love to do that with ours! P.S. Really love reading your blog.... Lynne, Calgary, Canada
