It’s been a while since I have posted anything on my blog. Time has a way of getting away from me. But I have been thinking about what I want to do with my blog and my goal is to write at least one post a month recapping what I have been up to. I may write more if I feel like I have a story to tell or something more to say that is to long to post on social media. I’m not very good at social media when it comes to documenting my day to day. I like to post my photography with a story or quote that gives information about the picture. And sometimes it involves stories about my personal life, but most of the time it doesn’t. For some reason posting personal information on social media feels weird to me, even posting it on this blog feels weird. I know people are curious, but I still struggle with what to put out to the world and what not to. And I surely don’t want to do it on a daily basis. A monthly recap feels appropriate and If I do it on this blog I feel like I own more of it. And if people want to see it they will make the effort to come to the blog, if they don’t, i’m not bugging them with stuff they don’t want to see.
The month started off with My daughter getting married. Holy shit, was that was a whorl wind!! From the time she was engaged in February to the day she was married it was a daily effort of planning and getting the yard ready for it. But by the time it was all said and done all the work and effort was worth it. It was an amazing day for my daughter, her husband and our family.
The next day we drove over to Jackson Hole, about an hour drive from Pinedale and hung out for the day. We went to the local art galleries and looked at the expensive artwork. I enjoy looking at all the artwork even if I don’t get it. Thats a whole other post in itself. But I just have to laugh when I walk into the galleries in my scuffed up cowboy boots and ball cap, and the curator/salespeople just give me the look like, he will never buy anything i’m not even going to waste my time. Their right, i’m not, and I don’t want them to waste their time on me either. No sense trying to explain to me why a painting that looks like a third grader did it, and somehow some extravagant artist type was portraying the meaning of life in it. And they are selling it for fifty thousand dollars! Don’t get me wrong, if I had that kind of money I would definitely spend it on art that made sense to me. But I don’t have that kind of money, and a lot of it doesn’t make sense, so I just walk around with a look on my face that screams WTF???
All in all it was a great weekend. Even with the kids out of the house, our busy lives make it hard to relax and unwind together. It’s nice just to getaway and leave all our day to day stuff at home and relax.
