I owe you an apology. I wrongly stereotyped you, and I am sorry. I really hate it when people assume that because I am blonde and a sorority girl, I have no brain. Yet, as much as I hate the losers who stereotype me, I did so to you. Shame shame on me.
You are so beautiful, I had no idea. I heard "Utah" and thought boring, blah, and major snoozefest. But clearly I was mistaken. Because your snowy mountains were gorgeous. With each turn and each look, I was captivated by those beautiful mountains. It was like something out of a picture book, I couldn't get enough.
I'm also sorry for assuming I'd be sipping on sprite and cherry coke all weekend. Wrong again. I enjoyed several yummy wines and a delicious champagne cocktail. In Utah. Who knew?
I also saw some very stylish students walking around campus. Many of whom I could take a style lesson from. Minus one fashion point for me.
You also have three of my must have guilty pleasures: Chick-fil-a, Sonic, and Starbucks. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Large cherry vanilla coke at happy hour here I come.
And Utah, while I'm not yet sure if we'll actually end up together (talk to the search committee about that one) I thought I should let you know now that you are delightful in so many ways. And I misjudged. Shame on me.
Thanks for proving me wrong and reminding me not to judge a state by its stereotypes (or a girl by her hair color.)
PS: I'll post a full recap of our trip when we're back in Chicago. Thank you all so much for your prayers, well wishes, and kind words. Your encouragement means so much to me!
PSS: I took this picture while Matt and I were walking around campus. Isn't the view beautiful?
