Moving To Utah
Our first week in Utah, I am pleasantly surprised by how nice people are here. It is a noticeable difference to California. People seem more relaxed, happy and genuinely friendly here. So many Moms with three to four children in tow in all the big grocery or department stores - the children all happily bouncing along and yet, well behaved. And the Moms - are SMILING!
We have had encounters with dozens of people this week - store clerks, government clerks, handymen, and many others - and all have this down to earth, relaxed, friendly and generous manner. I never imagined people could be happier than Californians.
