A Colorado Journal

A good and dear friend, Traci, invited a few of us to come to Colorado to visit her. She was our hostess and couldn't be nicer and worked so hard to make the weekend as pleasant as possible for everyone! I just wanted to share some of the remembrances from my weekend trip to Colorado. I don't know how to separate photos with text, doesn't work for me, but at the top you'll see the best piece of artwork created all weekend long, the little card my daughter made for me that was waiting on my pillow when I came home. 
I made some new friends. :) The photos with people in it, from left to right is me, Lois, Traci, Cindy and Joanne. We stamped, we laughed, we ate chocolate, we had eggs (thanks to Cindy) and we went shopping. And we stamped . . .did I mention that? We did our best to find a bear to wrestle, but he never showed up, guess we scared him away . . . maybe chocolate affects bears as badly as it does dogs? That was the biggest disappointment of the weekend . . . :)
When I think about it, the one word that really characterizes the weekend is love. Love between friends, the love of my family waiting for me at home, the love of our creator who made such amazing scenery. Anyone who has that kind of love in their life is so fortunate.

What an adorable little welcome home gift Peggysue! It doesn't get any better than that! I am so happy that you found this waiting for you from your little daughter! Gives me warm fuzzies!

It was sure a fun time. I enjoyed every minute of it! That is quite some view of the mountains isn't it! I got a kick out of the three of you and your cameras! Snort!

Thanks so much for sharing your pics as mine are still in camera until my new monitor gets connected (hopefully tonight).
