I heart Yosemite :)

Whew what a week, (more to come on this later) I can't believe I am just now finding time to sit down and blog about what an incredible weekend this past weekend was.

I'm not sure that words could express just how soul satisfying spending a weekend in nature with 3 amazing people can be.

I spent 100 % of the weekend either in awe of the physical beauty we were surrounded by or inspired by the wonderful people I was with.

Everywhere I looked there were bright fiery red, orange and yellow fall colors, massive rock walls that you can't help feeling humbled by, cascading waterfalls that seem to be dancing towards the earth and big black bears shredding your camper neighbors day pack.

Yes, that's right, you read correctly, big black bears shredding your camper neighbors day pack to smithereens! Way to leave your day pack, probably with some sort of food in it outside of your bear locker neighbors! Geez louise, nothing like being woken up at some ungodly morning hour by a girly man scream and the petrifying noise of a bear tearing something apart. Makes for a good story I suppose-- since we survived :).

And as if being surrounded by the beauty of nature isn't enough, the trip was made even more memorable because of the 3 lovely friends I got to share it with.

Kat, Lindsey and Nate - you guys made Yosemite's beauty even sweeter and you made sleeping with bears much less scary!

In no particular order Enjoy the pics...
I'm off to make some Pumpkin bread for tomorrow night's Halloween Kick off festivities.

With the birthday Girl! Nice shot Nate!

Oh the Girls:)

The weekend warrior Yosemite crew.

Kat and our awesome breakfast spread....loved our Trader Joe's Lemon Cake!!

In our heated tent - I may never go back to regular tent camping again:).

Awesome...did I say AWESOME? breakfast at the Awahnee! Man we were knee deep in the glory of Yosemite here!


Our long awaited hot chocolate!

Pretty darn close to perfection.
