I was raised in Alaska but took off for sunny St. George, Utah the fall after high school with scholarship in hand. After a year there I felt strongly that I needed to transfer to the LDS Business College the following year, despite the lack of a dental hygiene program or it fitting into any part of my plan. Which, is usually the start of a great love story. At least, all of my favorites.
Landon and I met in Salt Lake City, the day after I’d coincidentally walked into church late with his sister Avery. He was less of an adventure loving man then, and in more of a musician phase; I didn’t mind at all. We fell in love at University of Utah football games, drives in his VW Jetta, conference weekends, an understanding about working for Abercrombie, walks in the snow with hot chocolate + trips home to visit his family.
After our wedding in the beautiful Oakland California temple the next summer, we lived in downtown SLC and absolutely loved life. He got his degree from the U + I finished things up at the Business College [and shook hands with Holland]. We packed our things into a Uhaul and took off the very next week.
I started this site over on Blogger, posting weekly bump + life updates, primarily for my family back home. I made the switch to WordPress + kyrafaulkner.com earlier this Spring and look forward to continuing to grow.
I’m focusing on the idea of growth this year on my blog, and check in monthly on how I’m doing with my list of goals for the year. If you want to check out my goals, click HERE. I also focus on adventures | faith | health + fitness | marriage | and my favorite things. Feel free to look around and stay awhile ♡
