One Year. 366 Days. One year ago from Sunday, Evan and I set out on a great adventure—marriage. But we decided to make the actual day an adventure, as well, so we set out on bikes from Jackson, Wyoming to String Lake in Grand Teton National Park [28 miles], waited out the rain, vowed to… Continue reading a nearly grand anniversary.
The death plague that I've contracted from Jackson has given me pause with opportunity to document how wonderful the trip was. I didn't get to spend time with all my favorite lovelies, but I did get to soak up some supreme mountain time. [no energy for captions or correct spacing. just good times galore.] … Continue reading fox in the snow, diamond in the sky.

I am a sucker for free things. I'll take it! I'll do that! Sure, I'll eat that! So, I won a two week pass to The Womens Club from a raffle from a 5k Momma and I did whilst she was in town. I answered the phone call and when they told me I had… Continue reading where wine comes from!
How do I explain this feeling? Starting over, but differently. I am not running away... I am running towards. But I envisioned running towards, getting there, crossing some "you've done it!" finish line and a celebratory toast with new loves. Nope. Still running. Looking around like, "this is a great and beautiful run, but where… Continue reading they’re supposedly very intelligent.
I sit at this window, stare out at the park, drink tea, think about putting a bra on, working and then crying. So much has happened. So much is happening. I feel like you can see my headache in that picture. Overwhelmption [it's a word now] at it's best. Did I tell you I got… Continue reading overwhelmption.
I've been riding my new road bike around a fair bit. Loving it. This is the road bike all of my friends gave me for my birthday. [the nicest thing that's ever happened to me... my goodness, i have the best friends in the world.] Anywho, I've taken to it. LOVE IT. Wanna find excuses… Continue reading nope. nope. nope. nope. nope.
On this GORGEOUS day here in Wyoming, I participated in the Run and Ride [both the running AND the riding, thanks to my new, sexy road bike] in the morning time. The race is a 5K run followed by a 15K bike followed by some amazingly adorable kids doing the Kids Race followed by a… Continue reading for one second.
I'm usually all about celebrating my birthday for a whole week. Proclaiming that it's "MY BIRTHDAY WEEK! We're gonna BBQ/eat at Trio/go rafting/watch movies/etc. etc... cuz it's MY BIRTHDAY WEEK!" But this year, I didn't really want to. Didn't want to make a fuss. Didn't want the hoopla. I'm getting older, it's okay that there… Continue reading the whole damn year.
Some things I just want to share... [this song.] [this hilarity.] [a star wars photo.] i just think this is so hilarious. boba fett and darth vader gossiping over coffee, r2d2 looking on disapprovingly and leia checking her texts. just another typical day in the galaxy.

The last day our local ski resort is open, everyone dresses up. This year, a bunch of my favorites and myself all dressed up as Star Wars characters. I will have to get photos together and upload a whole lot, but right now I'll just share my favorite... This is R2D2 [Emma] and C3PO [Julia]… Continue reading come along, R2!
I got a text message yesterday morning, that read: "You are going to crack up when you see the cover of the daily!" My first thought was, Oh, no this cannot be good. Especially since there were many pictures of me taken like this... And then I opened an email that read: "I think they… Continue reading it’s okay if your shoes aren’t doing it…
Once upon there was a great team named, "Two Boobs and a Beard." [not shown... yet.] One delightfully sunny, yet still a bit cold, morning, the team was separated by a huge mountain. The boobs part of the team [renamed, "The Black Widow"] had to ski down three miles of icy snow to get to… Continue reading The Pole Pedal Paddle: A Story.
The morning shows on KHOL are just so indie-tastic. So pleasant. Good tunes, good people. It's just such a great way to start your morning. I remember before I helped at the station, I worked with adults with disabilities and one Monday and Tuesday mornings I would drive one of our clients around and we'd… Continue reading those simple.
Favorite song of the moment: But don't you stop listening to JLM: Man, I wish I could go to this... The travel bug is biting, sinking his teeth in hard. Could it be the cold, cold rain that blew my hood off when trying to run to a brewery haven tonight? Mayhaps. But then there… Continue reading biting, sinking.
- Wull hay! Have you met my friend, Rachel Stevens? She's the best blogger in Jackson! - Hi, yeah, no, I'm sorry… really nice to meet you. That's a lot how the night went. I had an amazing ladydate with my friend Colleen [who, p.s., introduces me to almost all the new awesome music i… Continue reading cyber-bungee.
I just have to say. Sometimes there are those films, those books, those songs [even] that you just cannot get out of your head. They flush themselves to the front of your face so that you feel that anyone who's looking at you is seeing the disturbance seep out of your eyes, everything you say… Continue reading not thinking.
Random Day. [oh, so random.] This morning, working out at a gym in a class. A woman, a stranger, is my partner for a lot of things and she just keeps talking about how she has to get somewhere, she's going to be late... Woman: I have to be at the radio station in ten… Continue reading oh.
