Thankful November 13th: My Home Town

To be honest, I haven’t moved very far from where I grew up. It’s a five to ten minute drive from our current home to my childhood home. As such, you could really say that I still live in my hometown, and I’m very grateful for that. Salt Lake City surprises quite a few people who come to visit. Though it’s not a huge city by any stretch of the imagination, it’s also not small or super backwards (depending on who you talk to). You can listen to a world-class symphony (the Utah Symphony), enjoy a play or musical presented by one of the top regional theater companies in the country (Pioneer Theatre Company at the University of Utah), enjoy world-class skiing at one of the many resorts less than an hour from downtown, take a hike up the Wasatch front for a break-taking view of the Salt Lake Valley, or take a tour of the beautiful grounds around the Salt Lake Temple.
