Sometimes life gets in the way of life...

Hi everyone!   
Sorry to be late for posting today.  I know everyone has those moments where life kind of takes over, throwing the best plans out of balance.  The last 2 weeks has been that way for me.   I'm still trying to smile though.  Don't look too closer though,  after sleeping in the car I look pretty rough lol.

So at this very moment hubby and I are driving across Minnesota getting closer to Fargo North Dakota, officially on our spring break vacation traveling through the west..  It didn't start very good though.

Two weeks ago my step mom of 29 years took a terrible fall, breaking her hip.   After surgery to remove a blood clot on her brain,  she remained unresponsive, on a ventilator with very little brain activity.   She passed away peacefully on Monday the 28th.  The last two days have been a mess of emotions but she is in a better place and we have a life time of memories and my dad is in good spirits. 

So...deep breathe and on to spring break! 
All 4 of our kids are on their own adventures so we are alone on our road trip and so excited to see everything the great outdoors has to offer in the west!  Our end goal for the day is Livingston, Montana, one of the states I am thrilled to visit!

Again,  sorry for the delay but thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to offer suggestions on places you think we shouldn't miss on our trip.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You're right; life has a way of altering even the best-laid plans. Find comfort in your memories, it sounds as if you have some good ones and don't worry about the delay.

Thanks so much Paris! Just trying to roll with the punches :) enjoying the beautiful flat lands of North Dakota!

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope you have a wonderful spring break time. It's certainly worth it to get away with your special someone alone once in a while!

Thanks Melissa! And this trip is amazing. We've seen buffalo and gorgeous wild horses.

So sorry about your stepmom, Krista. I've never visited MT or ND or any takes in that part of the country. Would love to.
