  • We went on a hike and saw three moose (from afar) and enjoyed the fall colors. I love Utah.
  • I am watching The Playbook on Netflix. I also want to watch this.
  • Any thoughts on the Samsung Frame TV? Yes or no?
  • Caleb’s birthday is this weekend and that means lots of fun and donuts! Donuts are a birthday tradition at our house.

  1. We have The Frame TV, it’s a couple years old and works great. Love that when we have company I can “ hide” it by making it look like art on my wall. I do a lot of photography so I use it to display photos I’ve taken mostly but there is also a huge selection of other art to display. I strongly recommend

  2. We recently purchased The Frame TV , great picture, sound and love the way it hangs flush to the wall and looks like a piece of art when switched off. Our dilemma is we’d like to hide the one connect cord from the tv behind the wall and out to the box but it is not in-wall rated. Still researching our options with this

  3. Love the family picture. I can’t believe Caleb will be 9. I have been following you since he was born. I love your recipes. Your chicken and rice soup is awesome!

  4. I live in SLC too and would love to know what some of your favorite family-friendly hikes are. The photos from your hikes are always so beautiful!

    1. Fun! Stairs Gulch, Cecret Lake, Donut Falls, Silver Lake, Neff’s Canyon, Ensign Peak…these are all easy ones for kiddos:) I hope that helps!

  5. Hi Maria,
    I’m in town for the weekend visiting from Danville,CA. I have been following you and have enjoyed everything you write about. I haven’t received your weekly emails in a while. Please get me back on. Also,any recommendations for pleases to eat dinner and breakfast?
    Thank you,

    1. Please check your spam folder. Welcome to Utah! Here are a few of our favorites. For breakfast, Roots Cafe and Banbury Cross for donuts. For dinner, Takashi, Valter’s, Lonestar Taqueria, and Copper Onion. Have fun!
