Last Saturday I packed up two huge and heavy suitcases, kissed the kiddos goodbye (why does Jane look bigger than Fox here?) and drove 2.5 hours to the Frankfurt airport.
It was my first time flying out of Frankfurt and figuring it out all by myself was an adventure. Luckily things went smoothly and after being passed around from counter to counter for having an extra bag (really? You're only allowed ONE bag on an international flight?) and paying the hefty fee, I got through security and then found some lunch. An actual bagel! I sat and read and watched the planes take off.
And here is how much I got done on the plane:
I'll share the layout once I'm finished!
I wasn't sitting by a window so every once in awhile I got up to stretch my legs and look out the back windows. As we were flying over northeastern Canada I needed a breather so I got up, with my camera of course.
What did I see? A whole lotta ice.
Nature is so amazing.
We landed just three hours after I took off - due to the time change :) It was a beautiful and warm day in Denver. Not gonna lie, as we were landing I looked out one of the far windows and saw the Rocky Mountains and started to cry. I am very familiar with Denver and the DIA - Chris is from Denver so we've been many-a-time. So good to be HOME. The wave of emotion that came over me was just too much and I cried. So what of it? :)
As we drove along we passed so many old familiar places that once again brought me to tears: 7-11, Safeway, a legit mall, Texas Roadhouse (mmmm!) and.... TARGET! Just to name a few. Goodness I hope I get to step foot in a Target while I'm here!
On Sunday I woke up and had the entire day all to myself. It's been over a decade since that's happened! First thing's first - breakfast. Delicious waffles topped with sweet syrup, bacon cooked to perfection, tasty sausage, yummy potatoes, a muffin, and some strawberries and pineapple. The All American Breakfast.
A beautiful day in Denver.
So..... the reason I'm here?????? To film a couple of classes for Craftsy!
2 days of filming down, 3 to go!
Then earlier tonight I met up with fellow crafter and Craftsy teacher - Danielle Flanders and we got some pizza for dinner. Danielle is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She gave me a box of some of her BEAUTIFUL cards. Seriously, she's the world's best cardmarker! I'll have to take pictures of them, they're so gorgeous - too gorgeous to give away :)
Margherita pizza, my fave.
Whelp, I'm still a little jet-lagged and this post has taken me four days to write, so I'm calling it good! Peace out!
