Wearing beautiful leis straight from Hawaii. A surprise brought by sweet friend Mounu.
Coryn gave an excellent talk today. We are so proud of her hard work as a missionary in France and Belgium. We admire her example of love for our Savior and her willingness to give 18 months of her life to share His Gospel of Love with those who would listen. It has blessed her life. And will continue to bless her life. She is all the richer for this experience.
So... I guess they liked me. The "4 Powers That Be" of the Rooftop Concert Series Asked me to return this season as the Greenroom Manager. So... The first Friday of every month Through October You know where to find me. Check out our great line-up HERE.
My husband and I looking eager to partake at The Cheesecake Factory.
Saturday we celebrated both Coryn and Caitlyn's birthdays by visiting the new gorgeous City Creek Center in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City.
And believe me it is one fabulous mall. We splurged big time and ate lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. The menu alone is a small phone book. The food is divine. And Caitlyn let us know that "The waiters are hot!"
There is a store for everyone. Coryn and Caitlyn were excited about H&M. Court and Cammy headed to Disney Store and Deseret Book. Bill was a sport and tagged along with me to Papyrus.Tiffany's was not in the budget:)
It was a pleasant day and well worth the trip.
Our evening highlight was a visit to the home of our friends Tom and Courtney Morrill. They had lovingly planned a soiree to celebrate Coryn's return from Paris as well as her 24th birthday.
Coryn met Courtney in a university film class and they became fast friends. Courtney is a graduate of BYU's film program and a talented screenwriter. One of her projects, a web series called"Dead Grandma" is making the film festival rounds. Tom is also a film graduate and works as a producer. One of his current projects is the excellent series "Turning Point" which can be seen on BYUTV.
Our dinner was up on the rooftop of their apartment. A spectacular view of the Salt Lake Valley! We felt like we were on a movie location.
Tom and Courtney had created lovely ambiance. Cafe lights, tissue flowers, and French music. And Tom is a talent at the b-b-que grill. Yummy food and fun conversation.
So nice for Coryn to connect with her dear friends again. She had missed their wedding last May. The Morrills jokingly offered to "recreate" the day, dress and all:)
If you know our daughters, this photo says a lot...
Look at that view!! And the guy in the corner:)
Such a wonderful day. Thanks, Tom and Courtney, for capping it off so beautifully.
