Life Elevated

So I've finally decided to dive into the blogging world. What kind of a blogger will I be? Will I be clever and funny like my dear friend Robyn or will I start this and then drop off of the face of the earth like my brother Tim?

I thought it would be great to have a clever name like one of my friends, but alas I have been handicapped by the world's most common female first name and a last name that only lends itself to cheesy images of old men getting their hair cut or a red and white pole. So my blog has been named for my current place of residence. That's right - Life Elevated is the newest and greatest plan to market the state of Utah. I wonder how many tax dollars we used to come up with that?! It does apply to me though, since Park City is a town in the mountains. And I hope it will help remind me to keep my spirits elevated and remember to post good stuff about our life here and not just whine a lot about snow and cold.

OK, one picture depicting the snow and cold:

That's the back of our house. All the open space is the community park, or the Barber's private backyard that we let other kids play in. We've thought about posting a sign-up sheet for the gazebo, but a really classy one, written in pencil on some lined school paper. So far no one has ever been using it when we wanted to!

The picture is from last March, but the snow looks pretty much the same as today. We had quite the storm yesterday, with more on the way tonight. We'd be loving the powder at the ski resort if Easton hadn't broken his arm again. Maybe I'll blog about that when I stop feeling so sorry for myself and the way I'm trapped inside with Easton.

Well, that's the end of my first endeavor. Feel free to comment on the content and/or grammatical errors.
