You may have noticed that this blog wasn’t updated last week. I figured after such an amazing introduction it was only fitting that the blog, and this new blogger, take a week to quietly celebrate the wonderful person who is Jenny.
I know you will all agree with me when I say I have some big, clownish, shoes to fill (I mean that in the nicest way possible). Although, I have never thought of myself as a blogger per se I do have a fondness for social media. I regularly update our twitter feed (UMFA on twitter). I also work in development (fundraising) for the UMFA and have happily filled-in in various other positions at this wonderful Museum. And although I am flattered, and my cheeks are still a little red from blushing over Jenny’s introduction, I really don’t take myself too seriously. On that note, so begins my first blog post…
Since many Utahns are a bit loopy on vitamin D (thanks to the unseasonably warm weather) I think it is only pertinent to write about my favorite season, summer.
For me summer is all about the hot dog (which is ironic because I am a vegetarian). Summer equals cookouts, and baseball games, and beaches, all of which often times contain a dog or two of the hot variety. So, when I think about summers and hot dogs simultaneously a very specific image pops into my brain – Hot Dog Bridge by Russell Talbert Gordon.
What memories or things do you associate with summer?
