I Never Said You Could Stop Digging…!

I don’t even want to hear it…

Yes, two months is too long to go between blogs.

I have been stretched so thin since I got home from Montana, every aspect of my life is suffering. I have been playing the “squeaky wheel gets the oil” game, not my favorite. I have anxiety  all the time,  I can’t relax.

I am a person who hates excuses from others, I don’t give them myself… So for the last two months I have just appeared to be dumbass who can’t get anything done.

While I write this post, there are three cards full of images ready to go for the next one.

I have to start somewhere…

I don’t even remember my trip, the images help… I do remember this hat in the airport when I was leaving though. For those who don’t know… Montana State, baby! He thought I was weird. I’m used to it._MG_0304-1

Typical Montana weather welcoming me home.

I stayed with my sister who lives in my Grandparents old house, I spent many a day there in my youth. This is the door to the dress-up closet… Now it’s her crazy cat’s favorite spot.

“The Aunts…”  My dad’s sisters. VERY cool trio.

And I got my Auntie Mary’s goulash, (American chop suey to you New Englanders) a must have!

I was there to photograph this perfect little couples wedding. Good peeps.

And gems!

I love being back where the waitress automatically brings ranch to the table with your order. And it’s good ranch, not the creepy clear-ish substance that passes for ranch on the east coast.

I was lucky enough to get to spend time with almost everyone I set out to see.

This mint chocolate chip ice cream actually tasted like mint, like real mint. I must replicate…

_MG_1251-8

I like to finish with ice cream.

I’m not even going to proofread, I just NEED to get this crossed off my list!

Happy ball point pen day, Loves… I feel like sticking one in my eye.

I love you all!
