The Fall weather in Utah this year has been nothing short of glorious! The leaves have lasted for so long and the days are still perfectly pleasant. I definitely prefer the warmth over the cold so I’m holding on to every last minute of warmth until winter hits. I’m always so happy when fall hangs on just a bit longer and this year has been the best. The leaves are stunning and the mountains are covered with color. Trent and I try to find time outside together and we always talk about how life’s problems seem to get a little smaller when you get outside and enjoy the world around you. The other night we went on a bike ride out by Farmington bay and almost died by mosquitoes but it was still a blast. 🙂 I’m so lucky to have married a man who loves to adventure and even though I sometimes need to be convinced of an idea, it always ends up being just what I needed. I love my adventurous life and adventures call for Thread Wallets.

I wear a lanyard everyday for work and usually people know when I’m coming down the hall because it jingles as I walk. It holds everything that I need for the school day and I always freak out a little bit when I misplace it. When my old lanyard broke a couple weeks ago, I was so bummed! Luckily, Thread Wallets came in to save the day! Thread Wallets is a company that makes wallets, phone cases and lanyards. They have full length lanyards as well as wrist length lanyards and their wallets are simple and perfect. All the patterns are unique and stylish, not to mention they are local! I love supporting local Utah brands and feel like they always have such great quality products. Thread Wallets is no exception and I’ve loved my new lanyard.

Whether I’m wandering around the classroom or adventuring with T, this lanyard has been a perfect addition. Here’s to enjoying this wonderful fall weather while it lasts!

Cheers to Fall

Fall this year in Utah has been absolutely gorgeous! It’s been warm, sunny and the leaves are absolutely breathtaking. I’ve always loved Fall for the changes that it represents. The year moves along so fast when the leaves start to change and the weather cools down. It’s time to prepare for the winter, time to make wonderful memories and time for lots and lots of adventures.

The Way of the Wards is officially a year old! How crazy is that? I was looking back through all my old posts and it’s fun to see how much we experienced last year and how much we continue to experience each and every day. Life is a glorious adventure.

A couple weekends ago, Trent and I took off into the mountain on our little dirt bikes. I crashed, Trent rescued me, we rode together and simply enjoyed the beauty that surrounded us. We are so lucky. Of course there are good days and bad days, but the good days always seem to blur out the bad and each new day holds endless possibilities. Cheers to Fall, to adventures and to the beauty that surrounds each and every one of us.
