Happy Place

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Friday was crummy.  I was tired, didn't feel well, and it had been a sad week at work where some friends lost loved ones... Then Ad and I ended up getting stranded in a car with a dead battery.  Just couldn't shake the bad day.  Sometimes it's just too much.  Saturday we day-tripped up to our family cabin on the American River--my favorite place in the entire world, and probably one of the more peaceful.

I have lots to write about, but I thought for today I'd just share some of our pictures from that sunny fall day.  It was peaceful and relaxing and just what I needed.









 

 








Check out this pic of Miss Roo, almost 7 years old.  The black and white one below is one of my favorites of the two of us--taken in 2003 (age 8 or 9 months?) on the same rock.













 Hope you found some peace this weekend too.  What's your happy place?

  2. I'm sorry Friday was such a rough day.
    Those pictures are beautiful, I love how you got to take a picture on the same rock as two years ago - I'm sure she will really appreciate.
    My parents cottage in the UP of Michigan is definitely one of those happy places for me, it's beautiful and somewhat isolated - perfect for going to find a little solitude and relaxation.
    Have a great Monday!
    Oh and if you ever did want to go running, I would be MORE than happy to slow down!

  3. Hey Heather, I had a dead car battery also on Friday. Good thing I was already in the walmart parking lot! They just gave me a jump and I drive over to their service center. Beautiful photos. I wish my family had something like that.
