The Perfect Getaway – Day Five: La Sal Mountains (Oowah Lake & Clark Lake Trail)

For some people, it’s palm trees, sandy beaches, and ocean waves on a hot, sunny day that’s their heaven. For Bryan, it’s rocky, red, canyon-filled, arch-filled desert. For me, it’s evergreen trees, snow-capped mountains, and lakes, especially on cloudy days. On day five of our vacation last June, we were able to explore my kind of heaven in the mountains…

The Perfect Getaway – Day Four: Canyonlands National Park

Each morning we were awed by these lovely views of Utah mountains, and it was almost hard to leave to go explore other areas! But on day four of our trip, we had plans to take a look at Canyonlands National Park. Our first stop (after accidentally turning onto one of the back country roads not accessible to little front-wheel…

The Perfect Getaway – Day Three: Arches National Park

It’s been a month and a half since we embarked on our journey to Utah, and the post-vacay emptiness is still lingering!

The Perfect Getaway – Day One: The Drive

Pawnee City, NE to Moab, UT   If you haven’t already read about it in my earlier preview post, Bryan and I took a trip to Moab, Utah from June 18-24. Our travel experience is pretty limited. We had gone to Minnesota with my family in 2010 before we were married, Lake McConaughy with Bryan’s Ogallala family (three or four…

Calling It Quits After 6 Years of Marriage {And Why You Should, Too!}

On May 8 of 2011, I did the most horrendous, unthinkable thing a 19 year old girl could do: I married my high school sweetheart. *GASP!* You can imagine that not everyone in our circle of family and friends (and acquaintances and strangers, for that matter) was all that thrilled about our engagement. I get it. We were young and…

{Snapshots}

Luke’s February Adventures In February we had some absolutely delightful weather. A warm, bright ball of fire beating down on our skin, no raindrops to melt us, and wind at a sigh rather than a huff and puff… I think “delightful” is about the best way to sum it up. We took advantage of those warm February days and let…
