My Latest and Greatest Project

It was time to transform baby girls room into something more suitable for a growing girl.  I have the best friends and husband who helped paint, refinish furniture and all the other fun stuff.  Her favorite part of her new bedroom...her desk!  And it's not just any desk.  My neighbor's dad was my friend and a patient of mine years ago.  Delmar was spunky, funny and a little (ok a lot) mischievous.  He made this desk for my friend when she was 9.  It's a special piece to have.  Now I only have like 8 more rooms in our house to get done. 😁

Soccer Mom

Yep, that's me.  

I've been the admin for our club soccer Utah Rangers FC.  I've taken care of the finances, paid refs, printed too many rosters to count, answered endless questions and even had a few parents yell at me from time to time.  It's kind of a thankless job but somehow I
love it.  I love the boys.  I enjoy seeing each one of them work hard and develop.  I like what's happening on our team.  They are starting to trust one another and have a real synergy on the field.  I got this text from a mom the other night.  It made me laugh!  This little jewel makes all those admin duties totally worth it!  Can't wait for next season to start!! 😉

We spent the evening with the wonderfully talented Rebecca Walters with Merraki Photography last night.  I'm blown away at her eye for detail!  It's going to be hard to choose which ones I like the best!  When I look at these, I'm reminded of the true blessings my 15 year marriage to Justin has brought into my life.  I'm so in love with him and with our 3 beautiful children.  I think it shows in these photos.

In Awe...

I often wonder how it is that I got to be the one to love, nurture and raise these amazing souls.  In reality I know I learn far more from them than they do from me.  They fill my days with such joy and happiness.  Glad it was me that they get to call mom. #lovebeingtheirmom #blessed @theisaacinator @abbyahgiggles

Spring Piano Recital

Look at these cute boys!  They've worked hard all year learning and plunking away on those piano keys.  Isaac chose "Summertime Blues" for his recital piece and Ethan performed "Ode to Joy".  Aren't they smart and handsome young men?  Love them so.

Everything is AWESOME!!!!

Wow!  You could say that was quite a blogging sabbatical I took!  I started a new job (and kind of a new life), my camera got left on a flight to KC never to be found again :( and I ran out of storage space on my blog.  All cause for me to pause, settle into my new career and enjoy life!  But I'm back!  And next week is #teacherappreciation week!  I've got the best helper ever @theisaacnator (isn't he the cutest? all the girls in 5th grade think so) and we kicked things off with and EPIC decorated classroom door for Mr. C!  Everything is indeed "Awesome"!!!!

Spring Breakin' It

We had such an awesome time together staying in our little cabin in Moab . It was s great opportunity to share with the kids some beautiful scenery such as Arches National Park, Dead Horse Canyon & Goblin Valley. We even made the treacherous and grueling hike to Delicate Arch. The kids agreed it was all worth it! The proof is in the pictures :)

Oh The Places you'll Go...

It's Been Sooooo Long and I'm ashamed!

1.  Life is crazy, but you already knew that.
2.  I've been focusing on the more simple things in life and I'm a lot happier.  I spend more time at HOME and have learned to say no, very well.  My family is so happy about this. I feel contented.
3. My camera broke.
4.  There's's been in the "works" for a little while....

Dear Treasured Friends,

                  One of my favorite sayings has always been a quote by Abraham Lincoln, “Whatever you are, be a good one”.  When I became part of the Courtyard at Jamestown team, I was a 23 year old young woman who had just uprooted her life in Missouri to move to Utah.  I knew not a soul here except for my sweet husband.  I missed my grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends so much.    Looking back, I also knew little about the world and what other people needed.  Coming to work here was like being home each and every day as I was surrounded by so many friends and family members who shared a mutual goal…to seek love in all that we do.  I learned from your examples that the service and kindness we show to one another is really the only thing that matters.  I learned to be a better person.  Spending my life as part of this team for the past 12 years has molded and helped me to be “good” in so many ways than I was before I came here.   Over that time I tried to be a friend, a helper, a problem solver to all that needed me.  In return all of you have been the same to me.   
I often think about the valuable lessons of my early days here and how I was taught to love more deeply than before.  I think for me that love became the foundation for me to be able to be the kind of mother the children I would be given would need.  I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to share my children’s early years with you.  Having each of you to love them has and will forever have a huge impact on our family’s life.  I just want each of you to know how much we all have enjoyed the rich things we have experienced together here at Courtyard at Jamestown. 
I deeply value the love and life experience I have gained during the precious years I’ve spent here.  I’m proud to say that I was part of something so special.  I think we made the world a better place together.   I hold sacred the lifelong friendships and associations I have made while working here.   And as Dr. Seuss once said, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”  I wish all of you the very best.  I’ll always be smiling because Courtyard at Jamestown happened to me.
Please continue to keep in touch.  I’ll be pursuing an exciting career opportunity with iCare Home Health & Hospice.  I can be reached at

Thank you all for the smiles and the memories.  It’s time to make some more!

Mindy Hill :)

Flashback Friday

I was looking through some old photos and came across these.  They weren't taken that long ago, but what a fun day this was for our family.  It was definitely hard work getting to the top but so, so worth it.  If you haven't hiked to Timp Cave, it's definitely something you should consider.  A real treasure in the Utah Valley if you ask me.

It was a great day for our sweet Ethan.  He's a boy who lives and breaths for soccer.  He also has such a sweetness about him and he appreciates the gospel in his life.  I hear it every time he gives a bedtime prayer and thanks Heavenly Father for his body.  He's always so kind and polite to others.  He's always the first one up in the house and looks for ways he can help me.  He's a hard worker.  I attribute that to why he is such a great student and athlete.  He won't stop until he's mastered the skill set before him. He's a beautiful pianist.  I love to hear him play.  We celebrated the day with waffles and cream with friends and family at our house and a cousins swim in the pool after.  It's a day we'll never forget.  

There's so much about him that I love.  I'm so glad that he was baptized and that Heavenly Father chose me to be his mom.

This Little Lady...

 Was the cutest little "chamber maid" in the recent production of "Swan lake" at The Covey Center for the Arts.  It was a great way to end her 4 year ballet career. She's hanging up her ballet shoes to try her hand at some sassy hip hop classes.  She loves hip hop, I don't think I've ever seen her so happy about something.  She's a beautiful dancer.
