I am from a place where we have all four seasons. We go from yelling like crazy at college football games in the fall, skiing in the winter in the mountains while spotting celebrities at Sundance, posing in front of the cherry blossoms in the spring, and hiking the red rocks in the summer.
I am from no snow days because snow is part of our climate. I am from where the 2002 Winter Olympics took place. I am from tons of sweets and not a lot of coffee. I am from a place named after a large lake of salt. I am from quiet yet loud enough to know about it.
I am from a place where the history is deeper than the our slang terms and pronunciations. I am from a place known as “Small Lake City” Where everybody knows everyone and I am related to most of the people there. I am from a place that will forever be home no matter where I live.
