Mount St. Helens


Posted on Jul 11, 2006

On Sunday, I headed up to Mount St. Helens with relatives from Kentucky.  My husband and I last visited the mountain a year ago, about two months before it’s last big eruption.  For those of you living outside of the "ring of fire".  Mount St. Helens is one of the youngest and more volatile volcanoes among the many many active mountains along the Pacific Northwest, South America, Japan, etc.  It had...

My husband’s best friend is a pilot.  His current job has him flying all over the world.  Lately he has been bring us chocolate from his travels.  I’m such a lucky girl.  There are few things I like more in life than chocolate.  The top picture (which you can see I’ve been eating) is chocolate from Holland.  The bottom picture is chocolate from Ghana.  Where will his travels take...

He talks about what we did each day.  So since that’s already done for me, I thought I would post a...

13 years ago today, I was kissed by a very cute boy.  Little did I know that kiss would change my life forever.  I’ve spent over a third of my life with my husband.  We have had more highs than lows, more good than bad and life has always been interesting.  I love that he is in my stories when I reminisce about college or ‘the good ol’ days’.  I love that he was there when my niece was...

I’m off for a week cruise to Alaska.  I can’t believe it’s finally here.  We’ve been waiting for months and months.  We have almost finished packing and are now left with the endless checks and re-checks.  My husband can be a bit obsessive about these sorts of things.  Then again, we never seem to forget stuff, so it’s all good.  See you in a week! These flowers were part of...
