The Roof Restaurant- Salt Lake City ♡

Located at almost 170 feet high on the 10th floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, in the heart of Downtown Salt Lake City,  lives the exquisite The Roof Restaurant.
If it was 1963 we could of been rubbing shoulders with President John F. Kennedy for my birthday dinner just kidding. But only because in the 1960s the Joseph Smith Building was the Hotel Utah and what now is the The Roof Restaurant was the Sky Room but many greats like President John F. Kennedy did visit the Hotel Utah.

All kidding aside I was very excited to spend my birthday dinner at a building with so much history and of course an amazing restaurant with a stunning view!
As I mention before The Roof Restaurant sits high on the 10th floor giving each of their guest a breathtaking view of the Downtown Salt Lake City skyline.
The beautiful roof top views make for a very romantic atmosphere as seen in the timeless movie Charlie.

However,  as a single girl I made my birthday evening a girls night out--my friends and I appreciated the views just as much as every cute couple that was present that night too. Oh and we loved the live music playing in the background!
Now on to the food! The Roof Restaurant features a gourmet dinner buffet menu full of delicious food and presented ever so lovely!

There fun specialty drinks are not a part of what you pay for but worth getting--they are so fun and tasty! We each had a different one and my favorite was the mango one!

I loved ALL the seafood options and sirloin options--all made to perfection. Lots of cold or hot sides to chose from. My favorite was the watermelon salad!

The desserts were countless and beautifully made! My favorite was the Lemon Meringue Bars and the Creme Brûlée! Wish I could of eaten everything since all the options looked so yummy!

The overall experience was outstanding, we all agreed that the service was excellent as was the food and atmosphere. For sure a restaurant you must visit if you are visiting Utah. If you live here take advantage-- it's the perfect place and mood to celebrate special occasions.

Now you know some of the history, seen the views and the food so go and experience it all for your self!

Thanks for reading!

Make the Best With What You DO Have ♡

I never would of thought that I would be that girl who would get a little emotional on "aging/birthdays" but I AM. BUT I want to reflect on ALL the good that came of this last year of life.
First of all grateful to our Father in heaven for health, the gospel and my forever gift--my family--couldn't have asked for a better one. No matter the distance our closeness is always there and love.
I also am very lucky to have the best of friends maybe there not too many but they are everything I need.
As am speaking of great people in my life I also have some great new ones. I can also say I am lucky to be a part of a fun new team at work that make the every days fun!
This year I also got to experience more of life through traveling, eating, blogging and relationships.
To say I have enjoined every second of it would be a lie but I can say there was a lot of learning, stretching and good.
I yet still don't understand a lot of this "adulting, " growing up and learning from it all but at the same time I know I don't know the end from the beginning.
So I have to rely on what I do know I know He knows the end and I know there is always good from experiences, people and faith.
With that being said I am excited for a new year of life, for new opportunities to see the good and to build on what I DO have.

Below is a mash-up in no specific order of all the GOOD that I have photos of and of course there is more that are not pictured.

Thanks for reading along and making blogging a thing for me!
