Never Say Never

Here are some pictures for #tbt and #fbf featuring a day hike up Mount Olympus in the Wasatch Mountain Range of Utah. 

I remember starting the day tired and thinking, "I will never make it up this mountain!" That one negative thought slowed me down and proved to me how important it is to stay in a positive frame of mind. Half way up Mount Olympus I had to reverse my thinking. I replaced never with hell yeah I can - and made it all the way up the mountain with energy to spare! Looking back it was a piece of cake :) 

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — either way you’re right.

Love in a Canoe

Before I share these photos, I think I should let you in on some personal information. 

I NEVER had engagement photos taken.

My husband, Rob, and I had many factors that prevented us from having a formal engagement photo session. None of those factors come to mind now. In fact, I am pretty sure they never existed. Suffice it to say, I blame Rob entirely for not having photos taken! Especially now that I see these:

I guess the real question is, can you be jealous of a dog? I think it is clear that he loves the dog more than me and even takes her fishing more! However, I must admit she is a great dog and that is a killer Merrimack Canoe. I will tell my husband now - you owe me pictures of us in 2016!  Consider yourself warned. 

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.
