Love Is In The Air

I was able to take my brothers wedding pictures this last weekend!  Had a ton of fun!  If only I could be that relaxed with all weddings I might be able to make some money at it!  Weddings freak me out too much responsibility a one time deal you can’t mess-up!




On a hike the other day we came across this interesting sight.  Lightning strike perhaps?  I have said it before the pines are my preference for hiking in and around.   There was really no trees to be seen on this hike!  I thought it was good exercise but the beauty although there for some, was lacking in my opinion.

It did take me back to my pre-teen years the smell of the sagebrush took me back to the days I would explore the hillsides of Malaga with my Brothers.


Love This Man of Mine!


The enormity of the forest can be scary sometimes but when you have your Daddy by your side you can walk through most anything!

Listening to the forest groan was interesting… trees that have blown over, but are caught be other standing trees makes quite the scary noise.  I was glad to be walking in the daylight.  Under the cover of darkness those noises would have my brain going wild!

Fathers Day, his choice an overnight hike up the Icicle!  That boy of ours had other possible arrangements so the girlie and I took off with Dad to his favorite place the woods.

Getting My Exercise In… A good laugh is great too!


So I discovered the other day how awesome it is to walk/jog with the dog hands free!  A plus to the belt and leash looped around it he pulls me when I am a getting tired!  Now if only I was brave and put on some Roller-Blades.

My friend told me years ago about this jogger belt that you can buy that basically does the same thing.  I wish I had thought of it earlier.  I am sure the one you can buy wouldn’t look as goofy as my set up!   My only regret, I bought a 4 foot leash and 6 feet would have been much better considering he likes to run right in front of me, making my stride off a bit.  Still much happier running and the dog is getting that pent-up energy released! 🙂
