winter blues / jackson hole

Lately, I've had a pretty bad case of the winter blues. Like pretty much everyone else in this city (except maybe Kimi and some avid skiers and snowboarders), I'm ready for January to leave. And to take all of its bitter cold temperatures, dangerous-looking icicles, and indoor recesses with it!

Luckily, I have yet to share some summery photos from the road trip my family took up to Jackson Hole this past summer! (P.S. If you go on a vacation but never post photos of it...did it really happen? Food for thought.) 

cooking up some tootsie rolls on the dash (gotta have them nice and soft...)

quick stop in Lava Hot Springs for some platform diving and waterpark adventures.

Hiking the Tetons

downtown Jackson

where we ate elk and buffalo and it was fantastic.
and some rock climbing for good measure.

And if that doesn't help bring a little bit of summer back into your life, I don't know what will. Oh wait, yes I do! How about seeing these numbers on your classroom thermostat when you walked in the door last Friday?

Yep, that'll do it.

FYI: My heater was broken (wouldn't shut itself off) and it is finally fixed now. But we had a few tropical island days in my classroom for a minute there. Bikram yoga, anyone?

I gave the blog a little makeover today, and I'm really happy with how it turned out! It was high time to update our little corner of the Internet. And I guess I was in the makeover spirit, because I also got a little makeover of my own today! Although, instead of switching up some HTML code, mine was in the form of a haircut/color and some brand-new bangs.

What do you think? Daniel loves them - but he says that about pretty much every hair adventure I embark on. Either he's ridiculously supportive, or he has learned by now that telling a woman you don't like her hair is like throwing a match in a tank of gasoline. Either way, he's one fabulous guy. And I'm lucky to have him. Happy Saturday!

P.S. Some things in our apartment also got a little makeover recently - I will share ASAP!
