Winter trip to Yellowstone National Park


In May of this year, my husband and I will be married for 20 years. Blink of an eye. We've wanted to visit Yellowstone in the winter. Cross country move. So in February we did just that. Two gorgeous daughters. We snowshoed. Dealt with postpartum depression. We cross country skied. Chose to be a single income family. We rode snowmobiles into the interior of the park. Three homes. We saw lots and lots of foxes. Job promotions. Big horn sheep. Business owners. Elk. Made tough decisions. Bison. Learned to be great communicators. Moose. Celebrated the everyday. Trumpeter Swans. Pursued our passions. Bald Eagle. Met goals. Coyote. Lost parents. Wolves. I love him more today than yesterday. Oh, the wolves. And as unfathomable as it is, I will love him even more tomorrow.

Spectacular! Our visit to this park in the month of September was incredible but now I have to go back in the winter. Snowmobiling across the park! All those animals (great pics!)! And, most importantly, congratulations on all those years together facing the joys and challenges of life!

I love this post! Those fox photos are adorable! I've had a fascination with trumpeter swans since I was in college. They are gorgeous and they mate for life. Pretty cool. My hubs and I celebrate 20 years in October. I kinda like him a lot. Congrats and Happy Anniversary to y'all!
