The Hills are Alive

How I have missed you, my blends (blogger friends)!

There are times, like this last little while, where my day job leaves me feeling so drained I scarcely find time to blog. It’s a side effect of reading all day long when I’m preparing for trials.

But inevitably I hear the siren song of blogging again.

And so I return. To share beautiful pictures. Tell you about my wonderful eats. Remember happy times. And feature all the loves of my life.

So let’s take a bit of a jaunt down memory lane, to a perfect summer day deep in the heart of the Canadian Rockies . . .


Where mountain meadows meet spectacular views.


And wild flowers bloom as though out of a fairytale.


No one had told us this beautiful place existed.


Discovering it led to an unexpectedly happy time.


The trails were so beautiful that for a moment, we thought we could turn this area into our forever home.


We soon changed our minds. The next year will likely see us return to the West Coast.


And when we leave, we’ll pack with our treasures the memory of a perfect alpine day.


Question: When was the last time you unexpectedly had a perfect kind of day?

What a beautiful place, I love pretty scenery and nature.

What a cute puppy too...looks so tiny I can fit in my purse, lol.

I'm glad I found your blog. I was reading HLB profile on bloggers and I read yours last week? so I clicked over to your blog.

I grew up in Long Beach but now based in Orange County. Great job on accomplishing your goals soon and running the half marathon in Long Beach. I like to run also but haven't scheduled any races this year because it's a busy year, I'm running a 10K on Thanksgiving so I'm looking forward to that.

Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I checked out your blog.
