In-between Seasons

It’s late Autumn and the air is becoming crisper with each passing day. The colors that once swept across the mountainside have begun to fade; the gorgeous crimson reds, sunset oranges, and golden yellows seem as though they came and went in the blink of an eye.

I live in Park City, Utah and today I finally realized that I accomplished something I set out to do long ago…

Live where people vacation.

I live in a 3-story, 100 year old house that sits at the foot of Park City Mountain Resort. It’s walking distance to the bars, ski-in-ski-out (not door to door, but close enough), and equipped with one kick-ass hot tub.

This is my Staycation.

I have 4 roommates, 3 live on the top floor, and one lives with me on the bottom floor. We’ve got our own kitchen, laundro, and bathroom. But what we didn’t have, was a 2nd room for me. We took a long look at the living room, and decided to build walls. I have to admit, I was nervous during the early stages of the room, but now I couldn’t be happier. It’s not perfect or luxurious by any means, but it’s still the most unique room in the house. It’s kinda like my own quaint, little log cabin inside a big house. I’m not going to post pictures, so if you wanna see it, get out here and check it out yourself (and that’s an open invitation to all of you).

I’ve really only lived here for 2.5 weeks total since I left Bryce in late August. I’ve been in Florida for some quality family & friend time, Philadelphia for the World Green Energy Symposium, and Chicago for Yom Kippur (and maybe a little bit of fun). All of which were an absolute blast.

Visiting my sister at school with Oma & Opa.

Playin golf and eating lunch at the Touchdown Club with Mom & Larry!

Enjoyin a day out in Biscayne Bay with some old friends!

Takin in the sights of Philly with another old friend!

It'd be a sin to not see this sign before leaving Chicago

Now I’m back in Park City and working harder than ever to land my next job.

So, to all of my close friends and family….
