The end of June my mom and I decided to hitch a ride with Debbie and her family on their trip to Utah & Idaho.
My mom & I didn't stay in Utah all that long, but while I was there I did get to see some people from my mission. I served in Utah so it is always a trip to go back and have memories fly back at me left and right.
First I went to brunch with Nadja who now lives in Salt Lake with her husband.
Almost ten years later

She brought me to an awesome European bakery in downtown Salt Lake called Gourmandise - The Bakery 
The food was great and the company was even better! 
I also got to see Zak and Sarah and their family. We spent a lot of time teaching Zak and became very close with them. 
I didn't get a picture with them on the visit but they asked if I had seen them in the church broadcast. 
The boy Sarah has her arm around is Eli and yep he is the baby in the first picture. Nadja and I were only companions for a month in a half and I was in Riverton with Zak & Sarah for only 3 months. Not a lot of time really but I think the quality of time made a huge difference. How grateful I am to have had the opportunity to get to know both Nadja and Zak & Sarah, I am a better person for knowing them. 


  1. Connie!!!
    It's crazy to think that we were only companions for a short time but you were right, the quality time is what make moments remarkable!

    I'm so glad I got to see you!
    Love ya tons!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Glad you got to visit Utah and some old friends! I so wish I could take a few weeks and visit mission friends. Hope all is well!
