Miss Utah County and Her Little Miss

I am so thrilled to announce that my dear, dear friend
Hannah Harkness,
a piano performance major at BYU
won the title of
Miss Utah County this
past Saturday
and my oldest granddaughter
Kylie was her Little Miss.

Hannah was stunning in her gold gown that was
absolutely perfect on her.
She played Flight of the Bumblebee
which she told us is a 90 second
performance with 1, 197 notes
performed during the minute and a half.
Here she is flanked by her attendants.

Kylie had told me one day while we were 
driving down the road that she only had two
dreams in life, one Hannah had already made
come true by asking her to be her Little Miss
and the other was to go to Paris!

After Hannah's title was announced 
Kylie yelled out, "I did it!"  We all had
a big laugh at that.

What a character!!!
Congratulations to Hannah
There isn't a sweeter girl that could have
been awarded the crown, nor a more
talented one that I know.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. What fun!!!!
    I know how much you have enjoyed working with her! She is a beautiful young woman and that gold dress is gorgeous on her! Kylie had a blast I am sure! I have a sneaking suspicion that someday she will go to Paris!!!!
