winter picnic

Occasionally during Utah winters, we’ll get some blissfully near-balmy forty plus degree days. Days where you can actually feel the warmth of the sun on your cheeks and being outside is enjoyable for longer than a few minutes. On those days, we love to take advantage and enjoy these beautiful scenes where we live.

We came equipped with a Clemmie Sue teepee to block some of that occasional icy wind that tends to whip up in the mountains. A picnic of grilled cheese and hot cocoa warmed our bellies, we are still coming up with awesome ways to use those Pebeo porcelain markers and added a little something extra to a tray full of mugs.

Photography by contributor Jylare Smith, who will be in Southern California from January 21-28, book away S.C.-ers, she’s incredible!
