  13. Aw, c’mon. The weather’s been lovely! Okay, it was cold over the weekend, but it’s getting warmer! I mean, it has to, it’s April. And Hoosierland doesn’t have mountains, but the grass is green. Flat, flat grass. But it’s green!

    Damn, that’s all I’ve got. Anyway, have a safe trip back to slightly warmer, flat, flat Hoosierland.

  16. It looks like you had a wonderful trip! It is hard to leave home to go back home…

    Nicole’s last blog post..Happy Tax Day!

  17. I know how you feel. We are in the northwest now for our wedding/honeymoon and are going to have a hard time leaving… even to go back to KEY WEST.

    Reese’s last blog post..The Mystery Revealed…

  18. I know you don’t want to go, but it has to be done. I’m sorry for your loss, though. The worst part of visiting home is always leaving.

    Camille’s last blog post..{On the Brink}

  19. awww, I don’t want to leave either and I’ve never even been to Utah.

    Wendy’s last blog post..funky birds

  30. I’m sure you must have posted about this before BUT what stinkin’ camera are you using? The images are so clear. And beyond that the photographer behind them is really great. Guidance, please.

    Angela’s last blog post..Birthday Boy

  31. Okay. I found that it’s a 40D. What lense? I’m a major novice so hopefully I’ll know what you’re talking about if you respond. I want crisp, sharp images (like you!) & struggle with that big time.

    Angela’s last blog post..Birthday Boy

  32. Heart-breaking!! Seriously! You’re killin’ me.

    Rhea’s last blog post..I give good chat.

  33. That’s funny, when we did not live in Utah we couldn’t wait to get OUT after visiting. Everything seemed so small and quaint, when we would fly in we would look down and go, ‘oh, barbie town’. It took moving back to truly be amazed by the mountains covered in snow in April…but let’s not talk about the tax day snowstorm…
