Oh, hello there. Fancy meeting you here. We are back from our epic road trip adventure to the Teton Mountain Range and Yellowstone National Park. I hope you’ll pardon the “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” travel report. I have zero new sewing projects to share, but I do have pictures of pretty scenery, so I hope you’ll bear with me.
Jenny Lake in the Tetons. I love this place. This was someplace I went multiple times as a child, but haven’t been back in over 20 years. Going as an adult was like seeing everything through new eyes. I appreciated the beauty so much more. I guess I’m finally growing up.
I felt that way in Yellowstone National Park, in particular. Now I get why it’s a big deal. Incredible.
Not to mention the wildlife, including these guys who strolled right in front of our car.
There you go. It was so therapeutic to get away with just the family and leave the world behind. Now that we’re back I need to somehow wade through my email inbox and giant to-do list. I’m SO behind on everything right now. And somehow I need to catch up on the last days of the Olympics that are filling up my DVR.
But more importantly, there is only one week of summer vacation left. Yikes. I’m feeling emotions ranging back and forth between sadness that summer went so fast, to guilt wondering if we made the most of it, to sheer joy at the thought of the house actually staying clean for more than a few minutes each day as well as the remote possibility that I might actually regain control of my life. We’ll see!
