I am currently on vacation.
I am in the mountains.
Heaven has to look something like this...right?

Why did I move to Texas again? :)
Just kidding I do like Texas...but it would be better if it had mountains :) But then, wouldn't all states be better with mountains?
yes. yes they would.
I've been drinking a pretty good coffee I picked up at the Albertson's here in town. Java Delight light roast. Yummy yummy!
Yes I know the picture is backwards...I don't feel like fixing it :)
There was one thing on this trip I wanted to do (besides drinking good coffee) and that was to take my picture by the Celestine Pool in Yellowstone.
WHYYYYYY you ask!? Because 20 years ago I was with my family crammed into a minivan in a cross country trip from California to New York for a family reunion. Well one of the stops was at Yellowstone National Park and I took a picture of myself in front of the Celestine pool (my middle name is Celeste) so my dad said it was my pool. :) That picture has been one of those impression moments that you go back to and think fondly of. You know, that time when you had such a great time that every time you think about it, it just captures that trip or memory for you.
That trip was also the trip that I got my family nickname Tinker Cow. Yes. TINKER COW. I had a key to my "diary" (because my 11 year old world needed to be locked into a journal) that was around my neck and in made a tinker sound. Well at breakfast one morning I was being a butt to my older sister and pretended to drink her milk (which apparently was an unforgivable sin) a she called me a COW. My dad quickly chimed in "She's not a cow!... ( Thanks Dad for sticking up for me!)...She's a TINKER COW!" (dad fail)
And it stuck. forever my family regards me as cow.
It had grown on me, and now after 20 years it's sort of cute :) I even turned it into a comic strip in High school called Cow's Unite with the main character being my alter ego T.C....I'll have to share it with you all some time :)
Anywho, back to this picture. I descided that when we agreed on where to go for vacation, I would go back to that same spot and take my picture there again. AND I DID!!! So here you go!
|Notice the key around my 11 yr old neck? :)|
So what am I thankful for today?
