Our journey from Boise to SLC was thankfully a much shorter drive. This prompted us to make a spontaneous decision to detour through Twin Falls, ID, to see Shoshone Falls. I’d heard of it before, but had no idea just how impressive these waterfalls are. Wow! Were we amazed! Nicknamed the Niagara Falls of the West, Shoshone Falls did NOT disappoint. We took a few minutes to enjoy the beautiful views and take some fun pics. Then we decided to stop for a bite to eat.
If you know me at all, you know that I really try to eat a healthy diet and feed my family well. We source our meat from local farmers that care for their animals, and we buy mostly seasonal, organic produce. I cook our meals using whole foods, without GMOs and other processed ingredients. However, on occasion, I do enjoy eating certain foods that I know are unhealthy for us. And in those moments, all food-snobbery gets cast to the wayside. Yes, I know I can be contradictory and confusing – just ask my husband. Life is about balance (that’s what I tell myself anyway).
I found a small-town, delightful local restaurant and embraced eating all the deliciousness. Southern biscuits and gravy. Huge pancakes. Yum. Most of all, the staff was kind and welcoming and they enjoyed hearing our story of moving across the country. They chuckled when they realized we were doing it all from our mini van! We sure did enjoy their hospitality and warmth, along with their belly-expanding food.
After this, we set out to finish our drive to Salt Lake City, where we would hang out for the next 9 days. We were looking forward to some quality time with family and our Young Living family at our annual Convention!
