off season specials




best part about living in a mountain town?
the off-season specials!  it's a given that you take time off between the winter and summer seasons. 
the town shuts down, business is super slow, and everyone (and i mean everyone) leaves to vaca somewhere awesome.  
by no means am i ready for the ski season to end....i'm just excited for somewhere bikini friendly.

i asked for input in an earlier post {here} as i'll be traveling to Dubai at the end of April.
i'll post more on that later, but for now....enjoy my favorite photos from my trip with my bestie and perfect travel companion, jules, to costa rica last april.  
a backpackers paradise, we had an insane amount of fun discovering the jungle, hidden beaches, and mingling with the ticos.   check it.

Bucket List (#2)


i'm so psyched to share with you that i've starting blowing glass again!
yes, the egg does have a small artistic bone in her eggshell.
i'm taking a class this week from the amazing Charlotte Potter.
jhole ladies, i'm sure you own her earrings.
she is sisters with my girl crush Grace Potter who i raved about here.  she's killin' it right now, btw.

teton art lab just opened a few weeks ago and is the first place in the valley, maybe even in wyoming, where one can find a glass hot shop.
its refreshing to do some arts and farts and crafts in a place where it is easy to only focus on the outdoors. hey, i'm not complaining....i just hope i can stick with my new hobby.

My Heroes.

I have the most amazing parents. 
{family minus older brother sean who was living in asia}
Last year, after the earthquake hit Haiti, they both rushed down to help the survivors.  Originally, just my dad was planning on going but I woke up at 6am to find an email that read:

Hey Guys. Your Mother and I are both leaving tomorrow morning 5AM for a medical rescue mission to Haiti for 8 days. There is no cell phone service in Haiti so we won't be able to communicate. We both love you (all three of you) to pieces and we're going to miss you. Please pray for us as we pray for you. Love Dad

As you can imagine, I was totally freaking out.  Luckily they flew down with a news crew team from Naples and we were able to communicate (barely) via email every few days.  The news team filmed 3 segments on what was happening down in Les Cayes, Haiti.  My parents said they were bringing people in by the busloads to see them.  It was just my mom, my dad, and an orthopaedic surgeon.  Talk about insanity!

Here are 2 of the news clips on the devestation down there. My dad is in the golf hat and my mom is in the blue scrubs hat. {Beware:  Some gross graphic images.}





If you are an alien and don't read the news, Haiti still needs a tremendous amount of help.  My parents travelled down there with a group based out of Naples called Hope for Haiti.  If you are interested in learning more, helping out, or donating, click here.  My parents can vouch that all donations are put towards much needed food/supplies in Haiti.
