Hey, so you know those times when the holidays are almost over and you’re super excited to get started on blogging again, but you take a trip to Mississippi to visit your family at New Years and it takes you two days of flying to get there, and then you end up having to DRIVE THE ENTIRE WAY BACK to Seattle?

Well, that’s a thing that happened. There’s a brand new breed of He Who Shall Not Be Named and he goes by Polar Vortex. In all honesty though, good times were had. I freaking love road trips. Even ones with tight deadlines so your Canadian Manfriend can get back to Canada in time to catch a flight for work that isn’t cancelled.

Anywho, I have been absent from the internet in almost all forms for what feels like forever, but man oh man, have I got gobs of scrapping material to work with. I’m really pumped to try mixing in 8×8 layouts with some 6×8 Project Life style types of pages this year, so we’ll see how this goes.

In the meantime, I figured I should at least post up some Instagram pics from my unexpected cross country trip so no one thinks I’ve abandoned this here blog. Anyone else out there have some wacky adventures cause of the weather last week? That was some kind of cold y’all.

    Road trips are great, aren’t they. Love the photos and can’t wait to see what you do with your planned projects.

    Oh yes, although it was a bit heartbreaking to have to bypass a lot of cool things so we could get to where we needed to be on time. (Made it with 9 hours to spare!)

    Gorgeous pictures! So glad you made it through the vortex, you missed some pretty drab weather here in WA, Here’s hoping you had a good mix-tape for the journey :)

      Oh yes, I wouldn’t have made it through my driving shifts without my music! I love how WA is always chilling easy when the rest of the country goes beserk with weather.
