Many of you may or may not know that I'm in a book club and as small as it is, I love it. In college my roommate Candi and I decided to read a book together. It was a huge success and we ended up reading and discussing together 3 books in the few short months after school ended and before I left on my mission (sometimes reading the books out load together much to the amusement of my mother who secretly listened from her bedroom window). Finally after 8 years, 2 marriages, a couple kids, and a divorce, we found the time to pick it back up and officially started a book club. This is not the topic of my post though and as my history teacher Mr. Cripe used to always say, "I digress..." It is only to mention that through our fantastic book club I met Gina. I'm discovering that everything I want to do...Gina wants to do too. Thankfully though she's a little bit more of a go getter than I am and where I sit back and wish, she takes action... and invites me along. So in addition to joining the book club, she's started up an Outdoor Women group organizing activities in the great outdoors and finding other women to join in the adventure. I have high hopes that it will really take off. This Saturday morning we went on a hike up Red Butte Canyon. It was a great little hike for the second day of spring and we got some amazing panoramic views of the entire Salt Lake valley from North to South. We were up there as the first winds started arriving with the storm that showed up the next day. It was great to get out with new people, to a new spot, and enjoy more of this great state we live in. So thanks to Gina and Maria for the hike and hopefully some others will come along next time... next time.... that's tomorrow! We're going climbing at the climbing gym! YES!
