every year since i have started school at byu, i've wanted to go to the lighting at the riverwoods in provo. this year, isaac made my dream come true! i was expecting lights hanging on the shops and on the trees, but let me tell ya…it was so much more than that! there was an ice sculpture, a christmas tree made of lights, a santa house, fire pits blazing, music, and lights everywhere i turned! the fireworks show was the best show i have ever seen! utah christmas fireworks are way better than california fourth of july fireworks (time to step up your game california)! it was freezing cold, so luckily i had my love to snuggle with! it was so beautiful and i'm thinking this will be a new christmas tradition.

what are your favorite christmas traditions?

  1. We finally went this year too! I felt like I was six years old dragging my husband and family along and singing the songs to get Santa there. But it was totally worth it :)

  4. I love how you're wearing a beanie, coat and looks so cold yet your fiance is wearing (what looks like) a light long sleeve. I also know how crazy cold it's been around here in the evenings. I swear every guy does this. They always under dress because I swear their body temperature equals 100 thousand degrees.

    xo.

  6. I like viewing the Christmas lights as well. Near where I live there's this one house that decorates every inch of their yard with lights. It's well known around the area & everyone comes to view it. So cool. :] // ▲ itsCarmen.com ▲
