The days are getting shorter, the mornings have that freshness to it…even frost some mornings! The leaves are slowly dropping off the trees, we know we are into fall. This has got to be one of the nicest falls that we have experienced in Calgary in a long time. We haven’t even had snow yet!!
It has been nice getting out for walks, Gord and I have been walking the Douglas Fir Trail (in Calgary) quite regularly this fall and it has been so lovely. The smell of fall, experiencing the changing colors of the trees. Getting the glorious sunshine on our faces feels so good.
I feel truly fortunate to have been experiencing such a beautiful summer and fall. Spring started off with our road trip to Summerland, Victoria, Rossland, and Sparwood. We spent most of our summer in Calgary and I had the opportunity to do the most hiking that I have ever done in one year. It was a wonderful experience. We went to the Kokcanusa Lake to spend time with my family there and had lots of fun. My trip to Radium with the girls was a great learning experience not to mention a lot of laughs and good “chick” weekend. I just came back from a trip to Sparwood to visit my family. We did a couple day trips from there, the scenery is spectacular. Also, highway 22 is a beautiful drive. It has been so nice to enjoy the beauty of my own backyard.
I can’t believe how lucky I am and how truly grateful I feel for having a wonderful loving husband, family and friends. I couldn’t imagine my life without them, thank you for being there. Sometimes I don’t think that I express that enough.
