Take me back Tuesday (is that a thing?) to @pelicanhillresort a quick 2 hour jaunt to Newport Coast from @cityoflaquinta. This beautiful view is just a Stone’s throw to @mastrosofficial #takemebacktuesday
Last night I was busy ranting about how it was “basically pitch black out at 5pm.” @studavid70 started laughing and responded “you hate winter SO much!”
It’s true, I really do. I didn’t grow up in a family that skied or in a place that got beautiful crisp snowy days and blue skies. I grew up with short dark days, westerlies, and deadheads. Winter makes me grumpy.
For years now I’ve tried to love it. I’ve tried to hitch a ride on the stoke of my winter loving friends but its never taken.
But this year. . . this year I am determined. I’ve got my night lights charged for riding, my skis for falling on, and my sunshine in a bottle (vitamin D). This is the year that I will fall for this cold-hearted mistress of dark despair. And I will win her over with potluck dinners and friends.
I took this photo of @claire_buchar during our visit to @gohaidagwaii a couple years ago. It feels very ‘winter is coming’ to me.
Cherish your friends, last night I thought this was going to be our last phone call. She called me crying uncontrollably from Jordan into Israel. We spoke as she's driving through Israel while missiles and RPG's are coming down. I directed her through the path where no direct bombs were dropping but she could still see them in the sky the sirens were blaring it was unreal. She managed to make it through 2 hours of driving by herself in a war zone safely to the airport. She's the bravest idiot I know @veronicamccluskey never do this again!!! #cherishyourfriends don't #traveltoisrael#gladyourealive#warisreal#imgonnakickyourass#bestfriend#takemebacktuesday to when we were in #paris and we didn't have to worry too much. #nein
