Monday: zucchini, movies in the park and hops at 9:01 AM

Today is Monday and i am feeling pretty positive. I have been having a tough time finding a job so i have decided to take charge and do something about it. When the going gets tough, the tough get creative. I am excited about all the things i now feel capable of doing and hopefully this will turn everything around. WooHoo for believing in myself!

Yesturday i biked the river parkway until we found a nice play spot and then jumped in the river. I am so glad the river is finally low enough to wade in, it was cold as hoth but well worth the dip. I want to encourage everyone to hop on their bike and check out the river parkway, it is so amazing right now. But be safe, the river is still unpredictable.

In other news i have officially decided to give myself a little break from indie Ogden. Working 6 hours a day on a blog 6 days a week (last month i finally gave myself Sundays off) while being a stay at home mom is a bit draining. Don't worry, this blog isn't going anywhere but it IS getting BIGGER! I launched a search and found 4 amazing people to join the indie Ogden team and i am excited to meet with them and see what happens. I am one step closer to achieving my goal of making Indie Ogden into a local magazine! I have a vision and i have the drive ( thanks to coffee) and i am determined to make this happen.

I want to give a hearty thank you to everyone who encouraged me to keep going, all the local businesses who have supported me and to Ogden for being so awesome.

Oh! one last thing! Ogden Utah has its very own Indie film theater!!! Go check out Art house 502 and see a rad movie! no longer will you have to travel to slc, support local.
