No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth,

I just went "out West" for two weeks with my family!

Together at Glacier National Park!



The days before we left were a whirlwind of packing and preparing, and the few days since we returned home have been a whirlwind of unpacking and tackling the numerous phone messages, emails, and all the things that need attending to after being gone that long!

This week is a packed one for me, but I do hope to share (in increments) about our very memorable trip, as well as some of the many photos we took. Anyone care to guess how many?

In a nutshell, in honor of my parents' 25th Wedding Anniversary -- which was August 14th -- we did a "redux" of their honeymoon... driving 30 hours and 4,000 miles round trip to Montana and back, and enjoying incredible natural and spiritual wonders! I didn't break from my writing, though... in fact, I journaled the whole trip in detail -- something I've always wanted to do for a vacation but never had dedicated myself to yet.

So, except a "re-cap" of the blessings here soon!

Hello Claire!
Glad to hear you had a nice break with your family! I'll guess how many photographs you have taken? "120" I'll most probably be out by a few there, but I know it is so easy to click away, especially in the days of digitial cameras!

Blessings,
Clare

No, actually we took WAY, WAY, WAY more than 120. We had 120 pictures taken probably by the second day. Some members of our family got a little snap happy! ;o) I have to thin the pictures down and delete a bunch of duplicates. It was a lovely trip though…

Lets see, I heard through the grape vine, that you took about 1000. Am I close?

Claire said...

Right now I think I have it down to 1,000 or so. I must get back to deleting! ;o)
