I woke up this morning to one of the most beautiful blue skies I've seen all winter. Despite my late night out last night I could not spend the day in bed & therefore packed up Bosco & my friend Ian & headed out into the mountains. A short car ride landed us at the trailhead of the Bass Creek Fire Ecology Trail. This trail is a short 3 mile educational trail with little elevation gain that would normally pose no problems. However, due to our recent snowfall, there wasn't much of a trail to guide us along our way. So Ian & I spent the next hour and a half on an adventure through the woods on what we thoughts just may be the trail. It made the entire experience of what may of otherwise been a slightly boring trail an adventure.
I was asked by Shane to be his date to his 32nd birthday party. I love just about any excuse to dress up & since I don't get many of them living in Montana, I of course said yes to this opportunity (the fact that a very attractive man was asking me didn't hurt either). I just wanted to share dressed up pictures. :)
Every year my family comes together in January for our family Christmas. It's something we've been doing since I moved to Montana 4 1/2 years ago & is becoming a family tradition in it's own right. Our family keeps growing too.
