I was fortunate enough to be asked by work to head out to Salt Lake City for the Build Your Blog Conference. It’s one of my favorite cities, and if you’re a avid follower, you’ll remember I was out there in July of 2013. I was so happy to get back, and I even got to stay out there a couple extra days after the conference to go skiing!
The conference was a blast. So many great bloggers and companies attended the show, and I got to meet with most of the attendees. I’m so interested in hearing everyone’s stories and backgrounds, so the 2 days flew by. We stayed at the Little America Hotel where the conference was hosted, which is stationed right in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City and had awesome views of the mountain tops. Contrary to what most winters are like in Salt Lake, most of the mountains still showed a lot of green.
Once the conference ended, my high school friend came to pick us up so we could check out her new digs and hang with her puppies. The next day, we got up early and hit the slopes. We skied Brighton, which is more of a locals mountain from what I hear, but I loved it. It had snowed a good amount the day before, we were blessed with fresh pow. The trails through the trees are what makes this mountain more unique than the others I’ve been on (and more dangerous!) We skied all day and went home to eat soup that had been cooking in the crock pot all day and watch the Grammy’s.
The next day and our last day in Utah, we went to Park City for brunch at a fine establishment literally called, “The Eating Establishment.” I ordered the Veggie Eggs Benedict and was a happy camper. We could only spend a limited amount of time there because our flight was departing around 4 that day.
I was so thrilled to go back to a city I truly enjoy. And it’s a good thing, because I’ll be heading back in April for Snap! Conference 🙂
