The Countdown Has Begun!

It’s hard to believe my next big adventure is only about a week away!  I have been dreaming of this beautiful Spring trip for months.  I’ll be visiting 10 European countries in just two & a half weeks.  I’ve been excitedly researching every location on the itinerary.  Sunning on Italian beaches & hiking through the Alps are just a couple of the places my mind has been wandering.  However, the more I check the weather forecast, the more I am awakened to the fact that most of the trip may be colder than this Florida weather I’m used to.  My time in the Alps may end up looking more like something out of my winter wonderland series than a traditional Spring scene.  Instead of being disappointed that the trip may not meet my initial expectations, I am excited to see what adventure comes out of the unexpected.

Setting Up Camp

The photo I posted yesterday is one of my all time favorites (Montana Dreaming). To get this Monday morning started right I thought I’d share a few more pics from that magical moment hanging out the window of my mom’s car (I have this silly habit of taking pictures from moving vehicles). Just a bit down from the cabin were some people putting up teepees. I love how that one horse broke away from the herd and is just watching them work. Enjoy!
