Ok so this winter/spring I was like a traveling gypsy! I loved every minute of it. The only unfortunate thing is I lost touch with my blogging life among other things. My house is a crazy mess. But, now I am home to stay until at least the beginning of June. Well...except for the weekends...travel soccer with our 12 year old has us pretty much on the go.
Since I have not spent much time in my craft room or even at home for that matter, I wanted to at least share some of the fun trips I was fortunate enough to take this winter. All of which were in the snow. Haha. I know lots of you will think I am crazy and wonder why on earth I didn't go at least once to the beach. But my family has become very fond of our vacations to the mountains. And I guess we figure the hot, humid weather will be upon us soon enough.
Firs,t just after Christmas we headed to Big Sky, Montana. Where our dear friends from Memphis, Lisa and Jane, joined us. And my daughter, Megan, brought along her friend, Andi.
We had a perfect week. I am finally healthy and strong again and was able
to enjoy the slopes with my sweet family and friends.
Next Tim and I headed to Vail, CO for a few days. The conditions this year at Vail were great. We even got about 23 inches of snow while we were there. After last years conditions I didn't care to ever go back. But Tim had a continuing education out there...and well, I couldn't say no. So glad I went. It was such a good time and I learned to really enjoy Vail. My cousins, Susan and Barb, came to ski with us for the day. I also was able to visit with my childhood friend who I have not seen in 20+ years, Whylly. She grew up spending her summers on Great Pond in Maine with me. She and her husband have a place in Vail. And they happened to be there when we were. We joined them for dinner one evening.
Whylly, her sister, Lisa, my sister, Linda and my twin brother, Scott,
made lots of lifetime memories together.
It was so fun to see her! XOXO
We went home for a couple weeks and then packed our bags and headed back to Big Sky!
This time my older brother, Chet and his fiance, Debbie went with us.
Again the skiing was perfect as was the company.
We have had little time together and I loved connecting with my brother again and Debbie too!
I had such a good time getting to know Debbie better. It was nice to have her one on one.
My extended family knows her well as they have had lots of time together.
I have not been so fortunate. But this trip was the perfect solution.
I will be happy to have her as my sister in law, but I am happier to have her as my friend!
ok not done yet...home for 10 days...then back to the slopes for spring break.
This time we headed for Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
We were joined by two families. Our condo was fabulous as was the weather.
It was very warm and sunny which I love. But it made for a little ice in the morning and slush in the afternoon. We did not let it slow us down much. We had a great time anyway!
and...one last trip...we were home for only a day and a half this time and Megan and I headed to Memphis to see this sweet little face!! amongst others :)
All the babes of Memphis are precious and we had a great time visiting!
We of course did lots of fun shopping and then Lisa, Jane, Megan and I headed for Nashville.
There we went to the Grand Ole Opry and saw Deacon from the show Nashville...:) <3 <3
So that believe it or not is it. And believe it or not that is the short version! :)
So it was an eventful winter/spring!
But I am glad to be home!! Time to get all those projects started!
And just clean up the house!
