It was exciting to see that Farmington, Utah ranks number 14 in Money Magazine's top places to live in the U.S. But for many of us living here, we would move it to number 1. So, I thought I would share pictures of our beautiful city. We love our small town nestled beneath the Wasatch Mountains, but we can easily hop on the freeway and be in Salt Lake in 20 minutes.
We love our pioneer heritage as well as our trails, parks and schools. We love our close proximity to ski slopes, lakes and streams. We love the pumpkin patches and farms, but also enjoy our new Station Park shopping mall. We are definitely a blend of old homes and new homes, old timers and new timers.
Yes, the windstorms can be fierce, the winters long, and the heat of the summer makes us glad for our pools and water parks. But nature's contrasts remind us that life with its trials does refine and define us. As Anne Shirley once said, “It's not what the world holds for you. It's what you bring to it.” And each of us who live here has certainly brought our own kind of wonderful to contribute to our hometown Farmington. So, if you have time to "set a spell," relax and enjoy my favorite photos of Farmington in the summer and fall.
