Why I Love Logan

You may see a smattering of these titles from now on. I get very reflective on the reasons why I love something when the possibility of not enjoying it anymore are going to be possibly taken away. So, the reason why I love Logan today (in addition to the lovely snow) is Juniper Take Out. I love the turkey salad croissant with fries and a diet coke with cherry syrup and their pumpkin chocolate chip cookie with frosting. I get it every time. Yes, it is possibly the worst thing that I could put into my body, but it is good food. I love it! And when I go to Juniper, I have to stay and eat...the take-out part isn't an option. Part of the draw for Juniper is the atmosphere when you are there. The people there are really a little slice of Cache Valley. Families big and small, couples on dates, old couples, groups of friends, people in their grubbiest clothes, people coming back from the temple--you name it, they will be there. Of course, for someone who has been in Logan for 10 years, I do have the joy of running into people I know. For example, someone from my days in Maple View, known as Clam Chowda, made it a point to make sure we were introduced to his new wife today. And then had the gall to condescendingly ask if we had any prospects. Nice. Despite these types of awkward encounters, Juniper Take Out is truly one of the reasons I love Logan.



Things I will miss in Logan. Getting my hair done at King Hair. I have had the same girl doing my hair for quite some years now. She does a just the right job, is the right price and we have such a good time every time I go in! King Hair will never be known as a chic place, or cutting edge, but much like Juniper, it is quintessentially Logan. I will truly miss it.

i loved Juniper take-out, remember how Stacey worked their and they accused her of stealing so i had to boycott after that! It broke my heart!

So, I was on Julie's blog and decided to check out yours, and what do you know? It's all about Juniper Take Out and I check the comments and Julie's commenting on me. Good times. They really do have awesome food, and I was sad when I had to boycott, but considering my own sister still goes there, I have no hard feelings towards anyone that eats there. Mozzarella sticks are amazing!

I can't believe that you ran into "Clam Chowder". I laughed out loud! I love Juniper Takeout! It's hard to find places like that.
As far as Kind Hair...I may live out of state but I plan my trips to Utah based on when I need a haircut so I can go there! Pathetic I know, but I love that place and I haven't found anywhere else that can do my hair just like them.

OOPS...I meant KING HAIR! Sorry about that! I was typing pretty fast because I have to leave for lunch!

I too remember boycotting Juniper take-out, but never really got around to going back and eating there. I guess I will stop in next time I visit. And I have to say, since leaving Cache Valley I have never been able to find anyone who can cut my hair just right. Even when I get adventurous and spend the extra, it's just not the same. Oh to have a great haircut again...
