"Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche easily in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them, but usually I do not understnad..and seldom do they understnad me. I am on of the searches. There are, I believe, millionsof us. We are not unhappy, but n neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hiddern rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter; to share our sadness with the ones we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know. Unless it is to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious but only for life itself and anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevail our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life, everything which is good and beautiful." ~Found in the door of a deserted store in Colorado

The beautiful place I live as seen from my Mom

Mom came out at the beginning of June and spent a week with me in Jackson. I absolutely loved having her here and it meant the world to me that she was here when I needed her most! We were able to do a number of fun things even though the weather was not the best...it snowed while she was here...in June! We made the best of it and below are some of her pictures from her trip. Enjoy :)

Driving out to the Village...a beautiful view of the Tetons.

A beautiful view as well...and if you look closely, you can see a hot air balloon off in the distance.

Our drive up Saddle Butte...a great view of Sleeping Indian in the distance.

Another great view...Spring Creek Ranch and the Teton's.

The moose Mom and I saw.

Mom and I had a really great time while she was here and I was so glad to have her! Mom and Dad are coming back out at the end of August to stay on a ranch outside of Jackson. I can't wait to have them both here to enjoy the summer...which is fantastic!

Well, I hope you enjoyed the updates and all of the pictures! Summer is absolutely amazing! I am loving everything I am doing and seeing. Work is great...I really couldn't ask for a better job right now and I love the people I work with. For those of you who didn't know, I got a new job back in April. I am now an Account Manager for our Homeowner Relations Department. Every chance I get, I am hiking, running, camping, laying out, going out, and everything else in between. Life is good! I am going back to GA next week and I can't wait to see everyone and enjoy some quality time at home. I love and miss everyone soooo much but I will see you soon. See ya :)
