West coast photos and holiday greetings


I hope the holidays are treating you well. For me, the holidays have been quite the adventure so far. Christmas was one blurry day of festivities. Rushing from one family event to the next. It was a fun day. The day after christmas we headed west to visit my family in oregon. Very exciting. But first we had to swiftly move out of our clutter filled apartment. It was a very long night. The longest I’ve had in a while. It was really a ridiculous situation, only us, the queen and king of procrastination, could wait until the night before we must be out of a house to move. But the important thing is that we got it done. So, after the long evening we headed to the airport, where the real ridiculousness began.
We went through the security check point, and of coarse literally every bag we had had to be unpacked, and repacked by a TSA agent for whatever reason. We then took two flights ending in salt lake city where we were scheduled to make over last connection flight. But of coarse things could not be that simple. We missed our flight and had to stay in salt lake city. Not a huge deal but it took 2 hours of dealing with random personnel to get things worked back out. So the following day we took 2 more flights, and had to go through security again – at each airport, where of corse our bags were unpacked and repacked once again. So, after our long two day “adventure” we finaly arrived here in oregon.

And it is absolutely beautiful!! The crazyness was so worth it. Now I am sitting here using my mom s iPad ,which is super cool, to make this post as I enjoy some brew with my husband, and play Mario with my awesome niece and nephews. Life is very good.

Anyways, i have yet to take a good amount of pictures like i wanted to, but i at least want to share a few pictures from the trip so far… I hope you enjoy !

&& I am always taking photos so If you want to see some more from my travels follow me on instagram @jollirancher

Have a happy and safe new years everyone.
Peace and God bless !!






Thanksgiving photo post


This Thanksgiving, I have found myself with so much to be Thankful for. I had tried to list it but I am so blessed that the list would grow to long to read! I have wanted to do the Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress for a while and I thought this weeks’ topic is a good one to start with ! <   http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/11/23/weekly-photo-challenge-thankful/  >

I am so very thankful for my dog and kitties. They are such good pets and always make me happy when I am down! Love them so much!

Peace Out!

More Oregon


Well, today was my last performance of Nutcracker for the year and I must say, it went fabulous. It is always such a great feeling to be on stage, it reminds me why I dance, makes all the hours of hard training so worth it. It feels so good to be finished working on Nutcracker for the year. We have the week off for Thanksgiving, to get fat and recharge before we start working on the next performance. It’s a long awaited, much needed, break from everything dance. Not dancing reminds me of how much my body needs it and I always have more passion to dance when I return.

I am very excited to see the pictures from the show I know they will be awesome. I will be posting them in the next few days hopefully.

Until then I thought I’d share some more Oregon photos. With the anticipation of the upcoming trip, I’ve been looking for all my old photos on memory cards and such and I found some more that I had to post. I am so excited to go back in a couple of weeks! Hope you enjoy!
