Happy Labor Day to those of you who celebrate it. In the U.S. the first Monday in September we celebrate and pay tribute to the workers and enjoy a 3 day weekend.
If you’ve been following me, then you know that we’re 3 weeks out from our daughter’s wedding and it’s crunch time. While it was tough to get away with Hunter’s recent surgery, my mom saved the day and took him for 4 days, while we headed to our friends daughter’s wedding in Jackson Hole Wyoming at the Grand Tetons (thanks so much mom). Not only was the wedding incredible and surreal standing amongst the incredible mountains as our backdrop it just what the doctor ordered.
“I have never seen so much hair off an animal might make a cool sweater 😂”
If you are like me with animals and a business to run, you might relate to how hard it is to get away which can sometimes feel like it’s hardly worth the effort but in this case it really was.
Thankful for my Mom
Once again she saves the day day
Mom’s are never done!
She hates me to say she’s 86 since she feels 66 most days but she had to put eye drops in 4 times a day and put up with him glued to her side, barking to go out at 12 p.m. Yes, she’s a saint.
A little bit about Jackson Hole straight out of the mouth of google:
“Jackson is a town in Wyoming. Jackson Hole valley, home to 3 ski areas: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Snow King Mountain Resort and Grand Targhee Resort. The Town Square features arches made of shed antlers from the nearby National Elk Refuge. The National Museum of Wildlife Art has works by Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keeffe. North are the peaks of Grand Teton National Park, as well as vast Yellowstone National Park.”
Before I left I felt like this:
Brain Freeze thoughts criss cross
Time to change the scenery
Take a leap of faith
Sometimes that’s all that’s needed is just a break in scenery and it was so true in this case.
Off to the Grand Tetons for a morning hike:
Off the beaten path
perspective opens insight
Lens wide open
Leave the past behind
New foliage replaces dead leaves
Bloom where you settle
Natures beast (best) teacher
Sound advice given
We took a little excursion to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming which was our first time ever. What a wonderful experience to see these mountains and geysers up close and personal rich in every way possible. It did NOT disappoint.
Old Faithful is a cone geyser in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, United States. It was named in 1870 during the Washburn–Langford–Doane Expedition and was the first geyser in the park to be named. It is a highly predictable geothermal feature and has erupted every 44 minutes to two hours since 2000. Wikipedia
Just over yonder
Surprises at every turn
Personal space sound
What a difference a few days make……
There are so many more haikus and pictures I’d like to share with you all but I’m having trouble uploading pictures so I’ll do a part 2 on Wednesday.
Have a wonderful start to your week until then.
