Hello there!

It's certainly been awhile. We are settling into our new place and our new lives in Calgary.

I'm still so amazed that I live near mountains!

We stayed in Banff and Lake Louise at the beginning of January.


En route!


Banff Springs room view.





Highly recommend the Banff Springs Hotel.



There was an ice sculpting event going on.



They worked quickly in groups.


What precision!


We took a sleigh ride.


That's a 'must do' if you're in the area.


Lake Louise was equally beautiful (this Fairmount was sub par in terms of service and experience.... in my opinion).



We had wonderful room views.



Lots of snow the last night we were there (had hoped to get snowed in).


Views on the way home.

We have been so fortunate with weather in Calgary. We've actually had two days where we sat out on restaurant patios in January.



Unbelievable!


Good luck finding an empty seat.


This was the stunning sunset we experienced while on a patio.

I am very excited to let you all know that I'm going to Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

I am going to visit my Little Bro (aka Dave or brother-in law), and Pepperloaf (aka Jodie or sister).

I hope everyone has been enjoying 2014.

I'll be better at keeping in touch!

Gotta run.
