I ran across this quote this morning; "We rush through the present toward some future that is supposed to be better, but generally turns out only to be busier".  So true.  After a week in Montana where I feel totally relaxed, I return to the lists, appointments, and responsibilities of real life, and while that is all well and good,  it sure fills up my days with busyness. 
I think I am at that place in my life where "less is more" applies.  All the "stuff"  doesn't make us truly happy and content, rather it's our relationships and our life experiences that really matter.  So I am taking a few deep breaths and mentally going back to Montana for a few minutes... and then I am going to clean my house!  I will be looking for more things to donate to Goodwill in the process.  "Less is More"!  And while I am cleaning, I will remember what I am really thankful for; my wonderful family, my fun hubby, my morning coffee, 2 crazy little dogs, and Jillian Michaels and the 30 Day Shred! Have a great weekend!
And, by the way, I won't be worrying about why my font shrunk in the middle of my blog post because that wouldn't fit it with my focus on simple living today.

Never mind that last comment, when I went to preview the blog, it all looked fine.  I will never figure out this technology "stuff".

Just plain, old, FUN!

I will do a longer blog post about our week in Montana, but just wanted to get these out right away.  We had such a fun time Zip-lining in Whitefish.  Can't wait to do this again!

Cooler temperatures in my future.

Oh my word! After a week of riding our bikes in 100 plus temperatures,we are off to MT where it will be in the 40's at night. Praise the Lord! I can 't wait to put on a pair of jeans and a fleece. We hope to do some fly fishing, some 4 wheeling, perhaps some zip lining at Glacier,some hiking, maybe a bit of rafting, and who knows what else? Let me just say that as much as I love Texas, I am more than ready for a break from this heat. And we will be joined by Z and Z, so we know there will be humor involved in this adventure.

Pictures will follow. Packing the the BIG camera.
