I love them thar hills

I'm a little worried that I might be a redneck.

Yup, you heard me right.

The girl who grew up humming classical music and practicing hours on her violin while wearing a blue taffeta dress has turned into a bluegrass lovin, rodeo attending, full blooded Colorado hick.

What, you don't believe me? Here's proof.

I'm comfortable livin here:

And doin my business here:

Proud to be married to this:

Impressed by the beauty of this:

Makin my meals on this:

Covered in really strange sunburns like this:

Love tearin it up on one of these:

Fealin most at home right here:

Yes, but how long is it to the nearest grocery store? And how willing would you be to have to permanently drive that far?

PS. Glad you enjoyed your anniversary.

I always love being in the cabins. Somehow it recharges me, focuses on the importance of stepping back and really seeing life.

On another note, I've almost caught up with the top 100. I did the pasta salad for lunch yesterday and dad just kept saying "This is good" with a very surprised tone. Dinner was the roast chicken (yum) with the gelato for dessert (MMMM) I've got the pork for tonight and I'll try to keep going with the saltim...whatever chicken breasts for wed. And I'll be up to date.

Hmmmm, not sure how all of those things make you a hick, but it looks like you guys had a great time! I love the mountains!

I know that I dont really "know" you, but one of the things that I really like about you and your blog is the sheer joy with which you seem to embrace life!

We live very different lives, but it brings a smile to my face every time I check in here and I read about one of your adventures.

I couldn't agree more!!

Although, Kyle hates country music... so we'd have to be only pseudo hicks.

I got to thinking that you may have had a slight bend that way anyway. You grew up going to the rodeo, the state fair (do the Puyallup) and hot rod shows.

This is a great blog! Very interesting, great writing, good pictures. I love your country pictures. The pictures of your unusual sunburn looks suspiciously like phytophotodermatitis, which is caused by contact with certain plants (parsnips, parsley, meadow grass, celery) or limes, then exposure to the sun. The UV rays cause a reaction which gives you an unusual sunburn (streaky, hyperpigmented.) I'm not trying to diagnose, just looked a little familiar.

Oh, wow, mom the bomb! That is probably exactly what it is becuase I took a nap laying in a meadow.

What a great doctor you are!

I want to sell our house and build a log house somewhere in the mountains. I don't think I'll win your mother over.
