A new photography studio opened their doors at Soda Row on January 12th. Bramble B is not your typical photography studio where you arrive for your hour session and pose and smile at the request of the photographer's "say cheese".  Bramble B is more of a rental studio with props and lighting for photographers to use for a mini 20 minute session, a shared 60 minute session, or an unlimited 60 minute session. Check out Bramble B's website at https://bramblebphotography.com/ and read their heartfelt story behind their name and click https://bramblebphotography.com/schedule-an-appointment/ to schedule an appointment.  Valentine's Day is around the corner...make that special someone in your life a lasting gift by scheduling a fun photo shoot at Bramble B.

Every year since 1994, Robert Charles Lesser & Co (RCLCO) conducts a national survey to identify the top selling Master Planned Communities (MPCs).  Daybreak ranked number 12 out of 50 with a 23% increase in homes sales from 2017 to 2018. To qualify for ranking, MPCs must be developed by a master developer and must incorporate a variety of housing types, sizes, and price ranges.  They must include shared common space, provide amenities, and vital public realm, such as parks, plazas, pedestrian paths, street cafes, community gardens, and community centers. The best MPCs have distinctive signage, landscaping, and architecture/design standards that unify the community.  Kudos to Daybreak!

Fall is in the air and that means floating pumpkins will soon embark upon North Shore of Oquirrh Lake! The annual Ginormous Pumpkin Regatta will be held on October 20, 2018 from 11am - 2pm.  If you have never seen this crazy race, be sure to mark your calendars to attend.  These floating pumpkins can weigh into the thousands of pounds.  Skilled carvers gently carve openings for a grown adult to (not so) comfortably sit in these orange "vessels" and race to the finish line without spilling over into Oquirrh Lake!  Did I mention some carvers use chain saws! The Pumpkin Regatta is a free family activity that Daybreak organizes and is sponsored by the Utah Pumpkin Growers and Mountain Valley Seed Co. Come hungry and enjoy some yummy food truck offerings!
