Snowing!!

We are super excited about all of the snow we have been getting here in Telluride.  Ski season opens Thanksgiving day, and we rode the gondola up to Mountain Village to get our passes today.
 



I missed out on taking photos at the peak of fall colors because I didn't feel well for several weeks after having a severe case of vertigo.  Looking forward to getting out more now that I'm feeling better!

Thank You Veterans

On this Veterans Day, I wanted to share the Desert Storm photo of my Marine husband, Jay Wilson.  This is near the Kuwait City Airport.  Note the face of Saddam Hussein had just been ripped off of the billboard behind him.  We weren't running around snapping digital photos all of the time in 1991, so we are thankful to have this photo.  Jay was 20 years old.

Thank you to all Veterans for your service.  also, thank you to my grandpa for serving in the Navy during World War II, my dad in the Army during Vietnam, and my brother for serving in the Marines just a few years after Jay.  Our son is also a Marine currently stationed in Okinawa.  Never forget we have so many things to be thankful for in America.
