Falling for Utah

Hello friends!

It’s officially the fall season. How do I know? Well, just like waiting for the groundhog to emerge from his den during winter months, I simply take my cue from Starbucks (when the debut of the infamous pumpkin spice flavor re-appears) I can’t believe fall is already here, but to be honest, I could not be more excited to celebrate the cooler weather, especially because I’m enjoying it from an entirely different state!

If you haven’t been stalking my every move on Facebook (because you have all the time in the world, I’m sure) then let me take just a quick moment to share something special with you! Drumroll please….brrrrrrrrrrrr (that was my attempt to roll my r’s. Did it work?)

So, about 2 months ago, my hubby, two kids and I packed our bags and….moved to Utah!!

The verdict? We are absolutely in love with it here.

Not only am I savoring my new surroundings of lush, beautiful trees and lots of greenery (not to mention much cooler weather) I’m also excited because I’ve started a new position as a designer! Same me, same passion for designing — new inspiration and excitement with an awesome company.

After some research and making sure our mission and integrity matched, I decided to work with Peppertree Kitchen and Bath in West Jordan. They were founded in 1986, and have become one of the best known cabinet manufacturers in Utah. Their speciality? Designing high quality, custom-fit furniture for your home, and bringing your dream vision to life. Can we say swoon?

In addition to my NEW home and NEW position…I also launched this NEW BLOG! I’m just so excited to share my adventures as a designer, wife, momma and day-to-day “life stuff” with you.

To celebrate all these “new” things, I want to kick off my first blog with a FUN GIVEAWAY!

  1. Glad to hear you are happy and loving Utah!
    We wanted to thank you for all the support you offered us during our kitchen remodel. You designed a beautiful new kitchen and equally important you provided help every step of the process. When I was nervous about choices (and there were sooooo many choices to be made) you offered suggestions and assurance that we were headed in the right direction. I needed you to help me move out of my comfort zone in order for this brand new look to develop. And what a beauty she is!!!!
    We wish you well as you begin this new journey in Utah. I know that future clients will be in good hands.
    Best of Luck!


  2. Hi Rachel! So happy for you. Glad you love the new state you live in. I would love to read your insights into how you go about recommending a design. That would be awesome to read and maybe one day help me redesign my kitchen! 🙂


  3. What an awesome giveaway! Fingers crossed! We just bought a new house and I can’t wait to put my style into it. I will be contacting you for a quote for kitchen/bath remodel. Your work is beautiful! Welcome to Utah! We just moved here too! Instagram: @mythirtyspot
