There is this amazing thing that has struck Salt Lake City and I am in pure love with it. It's called Beehive Brain Tree. It was started by my amazing, fun-loving cousin Dallas Graham and his friend, Paul Matlin, and it has really taken off. 

The first class I attended was Garland Making (you should really check out those pictures too!) and then just on Wednesday was "Introduction to Fine Chocolate". Most amazing class ever. It was taught by a world-renown Chocolatier, Matt Caputo. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing he was (and so well educated in Fine Chocolate)! It was an amazing class and I met such awesome people.

So much Chocolate. So much Fun!! 


There are a billion pictures... but I am finally at my last post of Ecuador. 
Puyo was amazing and the Amazon Jungle and River was just how I imagined it. It was green and hot and muggy with a million little creatures at every turn. The whole experience was right out of National Geographic and one that I will never forget. 

It was so full of beauty and life. 

The water was so refreshing after such a long and muggy hike. I was so proud of Maddie doing it while she was 6 months pregnant!

Of course Matt and I had to stop and play with near-by puppies.

Green as far as you can see

Fresh Fish. Yuck

Termite Hut! 
I was surprised that they smelled like wood... but it totally makes sense!
So proud of her! 

Canoeing down the Amazon River. It was right out of National Geographic. 

Love this place. I hope to return soon!
