In my most humble opinion, Star Mill and the surrounding mini woods is the most beautiful place in American Fork. It even has a little stream. I love driving through it. For a few moments, I feel like I'm in Ireland or some kind of enchanted forest. So much charm. I sure hope it stays this way, and isn't instead replaced with cookie-cutter houses or a strip mall, like everything else beautiful in this world.
Drew and I watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy in three days. The extended versions, of course. Because that's the only way to watch what I consider one of the most intricate and praise-worthy works of fiction ever.
It was a lazy weekend, to say the least, and we stayed up real late every night. I did manage to get the floors clean, the apartment picked up, and the laundry almost all done, so I don't feel guilty for our indulgence. Also, my brother and sister-in-law said the apartment "smells like fall," which has been my goal this whole entire season. So obviously that made me pretty happy inside.
