August has been a crazy transition month but I made it guys!! I feel like I've talked about being in my summer in between season so much and now it's finally over. From here it's all about making new friends, getting into my new routine, building a client base up here in Utah, and adjusting to my this new season of life. It hasn't been easy leaving Vegas behind but I'm excited to discover what Logan has in store for me! 
I think the hard part about moving is just this: Every day you (hopefully) have something to add to your imaginary pile of good things. When you live somewhere for your whole life, your pile of good things really grows there. Everything that made my gratitude lists for as long as they've been going was something or someone that had a tie to Las Vegas. When you move, you have to start a new pile of good things. It's scary and unsettling to not have a close circle of friends or living with family but that doesn't make it a bad thing. It just takes time for friendships to deepen, for you to adjust, and your pile of good things to grow. This is also why the church is so great. If the gospel is the foundation of your good things pile, it will go with you wherever in the world you find yourself. 
So in other words, I'm doing amazing! My pile of good things is growing slowly but surely and I know as long as I stay positive it will continue to do so. Thanks for following along with the adventure guys! The best is yet to come!!

When we were handed the beer menu I was impressed. Really nice selection of beers and ciders. With 20 rotating craft beer lines, there is more than enough to choose from. These Seattle venues are among the best around here.
