I'm back . . . I didn't mean to be gone so long.

I'm back. . . I really didn't mean to be gone so long. It has been a crazy few weeks. My grandfather passed away two weeks ago and then my younger brother suffered from a stroke on Monday (he turns 29 tomorrow!). Work has been crazy. And I hit the "stress wall" about mid-week. I was supposed to go to Cozad this weekend for a creative getaway, but I decided to call off my trip. Luckily I have fabulous friends who were understanding of my decision not to go.

There is a winter front coming in with snow, so kinda glad I won't be driving in it tomorrow.

Speaking of cold (and something more happy) - let's talk about Iceland.
Snow = ice.
Ice = Iceland.
It's a simple equation.

And why would I want to babble on about Iceland??? Well, I have a very good reason. We're heading there in August on our summer vacation. The plan is for my Uncle and I (and possibly Drew) to run a 1/2 Marathon in Reyjkavik. Crazy! We seriously weren't planning on going to Iceland this summer, but my uncle threw it out as an idea of a cool place for us to finally run a 1/2 Marathon together. Well, why not? Definitely memorable. We'll be there for 4 1/2 days and when we're not running we'll be exploring the country taking in the sites and sounds of this beautiful country. I've been immersing myself in guidebooks and websites in my spare time. The more I read, the more excited I get!!

If you like the Iceland picture, you can download it directly from Poked Studio.
