what a trip

I have returned from my trip and am slowly recuperating! It seemed to go way to fast, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

skiing the back bowls of Vail

Honestly folks, for those of you who live in this amazing part of the country, I am so jealous. There are many wonders of this earth, but Vail is one of my favorites.

After spending a day, yes just one little day, in Vail, we flew to Las Vegas, and spent the weekend at the Ritz. It is located off of the beaten path, which we liked. (Remember, this was a big 4 0 celebration)
We saw Earth Wind and Fire on Friday night. They are amazing....3 original members!
Saturday we went to the Venetian on a gondola ride. The birthday girl wore her new Camellia sweater, how sweet was that? It looked great, and she loved it....Remember, this is such a quick knit and a great gift idea. O.K., I will stop talking about it. We then changed for dinner at Tao Restaurant. So awesome! It was an amazing trip with 9 girls (we are still girls, right?) I am truly blessed to have her as a friend.

OKAY, AGAIN, WHAT IS UP WITH THIS?

One of the sweetest things about going away, is what is waiting at home. I returned at 1:30 a.m. and had this on my pillow (drawn by Libby) with freshly cleaned jammies(laid out by my hubby) on my side of the bed. And, in the morning LOTS and LOTS of kisses from the boys. I think I should go away more often!

A last minute thought: from the mouths of Earth, Wind and Fire: Everyday you need to let your feelings show!
