I've been playing catch up for the past week after an awesome girls' weekend in Vail with my two best buds from TX, Stephanie and Deanna (DJ to those of us who have known her since high school). We were mostly lazy over our 3 day weekend, with two nice dinners out in Vail Village and a bit of walking around. Other than that, our weekend consisted of HANGING OUT -- what a blessing to be able to just sit and gab for an extended period of time. This was our second annual trip and I'm anxious to book the next one. Considering how hard it was to come up with a suitable date for the 3 of us THIS time around, we might want to start looking at those calendars...DJ and Steph, how does next May sound? :)
Here are The 3 Amigas at the covered bridge heading into Vail Village.
There is something completely therapeutic about hanging out with your gal pals. I highly recommend it!
Over the past week, I've tried my best to get caught up on my assignments from Digital Photography 101 from www.bigpicturescrapbooking.com -- what a GREAT class that has been. I'm in week 7 of 10 and I've learned tons. My buddy Carolyn at the Target photo lab actually commented on my pictures today! Here is one of my recent favorites of my sometimes-willing subject Ripley...
I'm working on a new page under Recycling and Being Green -- it's called Personal Care Products and it's a bit of a challenge. There is some degree of controversy regarding ingredients in the personal care items we all use, so I certainly don't want to be CONTROVERSIAL (maybe that would be a good One Little Word for next year?). However, I've definitely read some things that worry me enough to switch my products. Keep an eye out for this page in the upcoming days.
For those of you Green Guys and Gals, I PROMISE there will be another List (newsletter) going out soon. It's just taking me a little longer than planned. Ahh, the story of my life. If you aren't on the Green Guys and Gals List yet and want to sign up, just add a comment at the end of this post and I'll get you on The List (sounds ominous, doesn't it?).
