This blog has changed. It is no longer going to be lame first of all. Second of all, I am going to write on it more than once every blue moon. And third of all, it's going to be fabulous...like this rainbow that I saw last week.
I am going to write here three times per week. Mondays = Books. Wednesdays = Blogs. Fridays = Beautiful Things. Lots of B words. That's why I changed the name of my Blog. Not because I am a B-word! (Though my family may beg to differ:).
Per the inspiration bestowed upon me by my good writing friend Peggy Eddleman (see her cute new blog at: )I am getting myself into a blogging habit. I have other bad habits, so why not this one?
So without further ado, today I am going to talk about the Idaho (Udapimp) Rainbow I witnessed last week. Every summer my family makes the 12 hour trek to our family ranch in Victor, Idaho at the base of the Teton Mountain Range. (BTW did you know Teton means nipple in French? Just sayin') I love it up there. I always have. Even though the ranch house is old and full of weasels playing peek-a-boo at 2 a.m. It's not Vegas, and its not 110 degrees. But that's only a few reasons why I love it.
So here's a few of the things I learned from this year's trip to the Idaho (Udapimp) Ranch:
30 degrees in the summer is not so Bad. When its hot enough to fry a soul in LV, its cold enough to save one in Grand Targhee National Park:
This is in June FYI.
I learned after the rain, Beautiful, Breath-taking rainbows are sometimes going to follow. The motto of this trip (coined by my often extistential little bro Jeff) was: "Get out of your comfort zone...it's the only way to grow." Wise words for a punk 19 year old who's favorite B-words include Boobs and Butt. (That's him dodging a hundred mile per hour snowball from lil' JJ).
I learned that I love to write in storms. They inspire me. Right before that rainbow, I was sitting in a little cafe in Driggs, listening to the crack of thunder, and thump of golf ball-sized rain drops, and did some of my best writing I have done in awhile.
I can't wait until next summer.
