I am in utter shock that it is April 11th today! I can’t even say where the past two months have gone because they have been an absolute rollercoaster, merry-go-round whirlwind! Just to give you an update from some of my previous posts…I went back and re-read somethings (the joys of having a blog) and realized that I may have left you hanging a bit.
When I started this blog seven months ago I had no idea what to expect and no idea what “blogging” actually was. I figured this would be something that I would do for a short time until the next thing came along.

As I was driving home from work I started looking around at how much the leaves have changed the past couple weeks. Normally, I drive the Deerfoot to and from work but today I had some errands to run and took a different way home. As I drove over the 14th street bridge I realized the beautiful colors of fall are out in full force! I was absolutely taken aback with the luscious colors that have emerged and its as if someone took a paintbrush to the river banks and painted them with bright yellows, rustic oranges and burnt reds. I cannot wait to get outside this weekend and take some pictures…
