Moab Utah

The more I live here, the more I feel like I'm cheating on California beacuse I fall more and more in love with Utah every day. Oh don't get me wrong - California is my one true love, but I feel there's room in my heart for another (insert polygamy jokes here). Welcome to Moab - a magical pegasus town that is home to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

I wanted to go big for Jess' 35th birthday, so I gathered 9 of our closest SLC friends and we booked a sweet set of teepees and tents at Moab Under Canvas. Let's not kid ourselves, it cannot even be called camping...but regardless of what you call it - it's just flat out amazing. Hot running water, shower, and flushing toilet IN OUR TENT. A view of the entire Arches National Park from our porch. And the staff are the nicest people I've ever met...

This trip was equal parts inspiring and tiring. I am not sure I'll ever attempt to cook and cater for 11 people in a camp setting again, but my love for design, good food, and this top shelf white man compel me to do crazy things sometimes.
