Last week Jake and I spent some time checking out Salt Lake City Cemetery. I never knew a huge plot of land was located in SLC. With the white snow, and fog out, the cemetery was so peaceful and lovely. The cemetery was huge and seemed to go on in every direction for miles. It was really neat checking out a cemetery that has been around since the 1800’s. There were the neatest headstones. I want to go back here sometime in the fall or so, because I am sure the trees would be so beautiful and you would be able to see all the head stones. A lot of the headstones were just barely popping out in the snow, so it would be interesting to see. When we were driving around, we even saw 2 deer prancing around the grave yard. They looked to be enjoying themselves.
For some reason, I enjoy going to cemeteries I like how it makes me think, and I like the peacefulness. I remember growing up, when my friends and I went to tennis lessons, we always made our moms drive us through the cemetery. Weird I know, but I have fun memories of that. I also really enjoy reading the headstones. I like to imagine what someone looked like, what they enjoyed doing, if they had a family of their own, wonder what they lived for, ext.
Driving around the cemetery it got me thinking about life, what I have done so far in life, and all my hopes and dreams. I really began to think a lot how I feel I am so lucky to be happy in life, and how I want to share that with others. I feel I have been blessed throughout my life to always feel positive and happy and I hope to share that with others too.
The more I explore Utah, the more I am loving living here. I never thought I would ever live in Utah, or even own a home in Utah, but life is unpredictable sometimes right?! Its been a great time so far, and I love going on adventures with Jake. I am excited to explore and get to know Utah a bit better throughout the years. I also love how beautiful it is here. The day we were at the cemetery happened to be such a amazingly foggy and white snowy day 🙂 Here are some pictures we took…

Beautiful photos. I find old cemetaries facinating too. I like reading the headstones and wondering how these people lived and what it was like at that time. I once visited an old cemetary in Texas from the early 1800's and was astonished how many baby graves there were in those days. Love that you were able to catch the beautiful deer prancing among the snowy gravesides.

Great pictures! So cool that you caught the deer in action! I love cemeteries too. I used to beg my mom to take me to them when I was little!

I love cemeteries too, I like the history behind them if you pay attention to the gravestones. Funny thing about that cemetery, Trevor proposed about a block south from it 🙂
