Peaceful — #augustbreak part deux


Peaceful was the prompt for day 20 of The August Break 2014. August 20 was an awesome day, but anything but peaceful:)

Day 20 was quite literally a circus…

Waiting for the racers at the finish line

It was the day of the Monarch Mountain Stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge — an event I had been working on for nearly a year.

I knew it was going to be a crazy day so I found it ironic that it was the day that Peaceful was the prompt for The August Break project. After running around coordinating entertainment all day, at nearly 11,000 feet, I couldn’t begin to wrap my brain around the concept.


I took the next few days off, and then it was weekend. Yesterday while sitting at this little mountain lake (photo at top) I leaned my head on my hubby’s shoulder and felt so peaceful. It appropriate to share my day 20 image, albeit a little late, with all of you dear mountain mermaid readers. Some times things just gotta happen in your own time:)


It is the only day I’ve missed so far! OK — I may have posted one the next morning, but I’m doing pretty well…and really enjoying myself. Here are a few of my fav images I’ve created so far

…I’m loving playing with the iPhone app Word Swag!

I’d love for you to visit me on Instagram to see the rest of my fun photos! Be sure to go to #augustbreak2014 to see what everyone else is up to, too.

And if you haven’t already, get your own version of August Break in soon…September is just around the corner. The weather in my neck of the Rocky Mountains is sure feelin’ like September already.
