Life in Your Space | A Bourbon Gal

You all know Darby, right? She's our self proclaimed, "typical Utah housewife….that home-brews on the regular, wrangles chickens and kids, makes charcuterie from the game meat she just 'brought in', and ends the day with a smokin' cocktail party for a few dozen of her closest friends." Amen. All told, she's one of our very favorite Salt Lakers…not only because she contributes masterfully-clever stories to our website on the regular, but because she's also a historian, booze-buff, and former firefighter and archeologist. She's our favorite kind of question mark--
"a refreshing paradox of vulgarity and southern charm."

Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff.

Writing and thoughtfully-placed curse words aside, however, this Kentucky mama has a billion talents. Among them are making a happy home and whipping up a sincerely mouth-watering cocktail. And, while reading this story won't get you the latter, you can at least get excited about the former. You see, Darby, her hubby Mike (the Harvard-educated landscape architect behind that xeriscaped front yard), and their two handsome boys will soon be putting down roots in a new SLC home…which means the cutie-pah (that's how she'd pronounce it) home you see in the photos below will be available for the next owner to make his/her own personal paradise. Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff, and a backyard fit for chickens and the like. Cocktails courtesy of Darby dearest; delicious eats courtesy of our very own HSL (and truth be told, we couldn't get enough of either). This is a home you'll want to make your own, and for under $400k, you very likely can. Keep your eyes peeled…when this bird hits the ground, we assure you, she'll be running.

In our daily efforts to boast far and wide, we all-but-tepidly tout the fine facets of this city. But we'd be remiss if we didn't shout more loudly about just how SLC got to a point where's she's worthy of such glorification...
