Without warning, I disappeared from the blogosphere in late May. Even though I knew I'd be traveling for the next few weeks, I thought I'd be checking in on blogs and even writing a few posts on my own blog. That hasn't happened. I've been so busy that I took an unannounced blog break. I hope to be fully back to reading and writing blog posts soon.
Since May 22, I have been on an amazing journey. I'll give you a few of the highlights.
On May 23, my oldest granddaughter graduated from high school in Ogden, Utah. Not only did I get to attend her graduation which marks a milestone in her life, I also was able to spend time with my oldest son and his family and with my oldest daughter and her daughter. My time with my Utah family is always so precious to me because I only see them once or twice a year.

I flew back to Colorado on May 26th so that my husband and I could drive to the Western Slope of Colorado to where my mother lives so we could be with her on her 100th birthday. What a milestone this day was for my mother and her family. I was blessed beyond measure to spend this day with her and with the family that gathered to mark this momentous occasion. I promise I will write more about this day later.
My husband and I then drove back to our side of the mountains, a journey that takes nearly six and a half hours, to return home on Monday, May 30. We then flew out of the airport in Denver on June 1 to New Orleans. I had a conference here this past weekend. The rest of the time, we have eating our way through New Orleans. Thankfully, we are also doing a lot of walking. This is our first trip to New Orleans. We have fallen in love with this amazing city!
We return home on Wednesday, June 8th. Until then, I will be on a blog break. I hope to catch up with you all soon.
