Vacation break

I have emerged from my vacation realizing that I need to seriously stop thinking I can do these blogging challenges. Let’s face it I set myself up to fail every single time. Problem is that I feel these challenges stunt my ability to blog. I stress myself out trying to keep on schedule and I feel as though I’m forcing out posts just to satisfy the challenge. I feel like I haven’t written anything all that great recently so I’m going to stop forcing challenges and just blog with the flow. My brain just doesn’t want to work that way. I like to be all over the place. It makes me interesting! Least I think so. 

Anyway I am finally able to take some time to myself and jot down a few words for you. I spent last week on our annual trip to Las Vegas and then went for a road trip to the Grand Canyon.  I had a lot more work to do this time around in Vegas so there are not many pictures but I will write on that later. 

Y’all let me tell you if you haven’t been try try try to get to the Grand Canyon. It is absolutely breathtaking. I took soooo many photos because the beauty of it keeps changing with each viewing location, passing cloud, and movement of the sun across the sky. I never in my life felt so small and being a bigger girl that is a rarity. Normally I feel extra big… especially on anything transportation related.

We spent two days viewing as much of the Canyon as possible. We saw so much of it and yet nothing at all. It is that big! My goal or wish is that someday I can get myself in enough shape to actually hike down into the Canyon. Going down is the easy part it is the upward hike that I am most concerned about!


Mother Nature is so beautiful and amazing. She is truly the master sculpture and deserves our respect.

Below is just a small sampling of the pictures that I took.

  1. FAB-U-LOUS! Your pictures and your smile! Way to be happy!! Ps: what’s all over your coat?

    I’ve been to the Grand Canyon once…when I was in grade 7….and I’m scared of heights and of falling into large open spaces…..I got out of the car and stay plastered to the hood of it not daring to take a single step away. I semi-regret it now, but I would never be able to actually walk up to the edge.

  2. Wow that looks amazing. I especially like the photos where you are on it. It gives this extra ‘I was really here and we made this photo’ vibe.

    It sounds like you made a good decision about the challenges. Blogging is for your enjoyment 😉
