Anytime you move to a new location, you’re going to have a new experience. Every new location comes with a new culture.  Right? Whether you have to adjust from saying “pop” to “coke” when moving from one state to another.  Whether you put up ALL your winter coats because you relocate from harsh winter weather to a climate that only goes from hot to hotter. Having relocated a few times now, we are “pros” or somewhat pros and adjusting to these new cultures.  However, it’s not interesting to learn what’s new in our new state.

One of the very first things that were apparent and obvious when we moved to our new home was the impact religion has in this state and in the community. With 85% (this is not a matter-of-fact statistic, just something that is frequently spouted off as the “known statistic”) being LDS, the influence this religion has on the community is immediately noticed.   In fact, you can’t miss the GIANT temple that sits on the hill as you enter the community. If that’s not enough of a sign, I don’t know what is.  We discuss other impacts in the podcast, but religion more so than anywhere else that we have lived, definitely plays the largest role as far as influence.

Another dominant influence is the weather.  When it’s cold, IT IS COLD.  And when the sun shines down on you in early August, it’s like you are two inches away from the sun. IT BURNS. And whether for sure tells people what they should do. Meaning, in the winter, we ski. In the summer we hike or kayak. And the garages here are a testament to that. Outdoor enthusiasts are welcome because this is the place for you. And even though the cohost is “meh” about the weather here, as you’ll hear in the podcast, the other host ABSOLUTELY loves everything about it and how it creates the perfect Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall. Hoodies year-round, yes, please.

How do you return to something after being away from it for so long? We wondered the same thing. So instead of planning a party, agonizing over it for hours, we just decided to start from where we’re at. Still somewhere in the middle…. still married… still parents… and still trying to figure things out. Although a lot has changed in the time that we have been away, we have a little kid now instead of a toddler, for example, the one thing that remained was we still enjoy getting together to podcast. So, we decided to return to talk about all the things that make our life, LIFE. It’s not always easy but most of the time we can find something interesting, entertaining or something that’s going to make us better the next go around.  This season, we explore what life is like raising a little boy.  When you venture into a new region of the United States that is unlike anywhere you’ve ever lived, and how you keep it together in work, marriage, and just in general.  We’ll also bring on some guests as if there’s been anything positive that has come from this post-pandemic time, it’s that we are now better able to maneuver virtually, which means more virtual opportunities and virtual guests!
