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.
