There’s a bit of an inside joke that Park City , Utah—the home of the Sundance Film Festival—has always made of itself, “In Utah, not of Utah”. I sort of adopted this saying as I grew up and especially since I moved away. I found that it was a really simple answer to the question I always got about being Mormon. I may be from Utah, but I am not of it. A post for another day is how I grew to learn that I truly am of it, but you’ll have to wait for that one.

I saw something today that made me proud of my hometown. Today, in Park City, thousands of marchers took to the streets during Sundance to stand up for women’s rights in solidarity with many other marches throughout the nation. One story can be seen HERE. Way to co-opt all the publicity that is already taking place around Sundance, my Park City friends!
