Ida-WHAT?

Do you ever get asked a seemingly innocuous question that turns out to be a life-changing event?  Almost like thinking back to your first date with your “other” having NO idea at that time they were going to be THE ONE. Yeah….well that happened to me and it went like this…Ever Go Hunting In Idaho?

Ever Go Hunting in Idaho?

My husband had always wanted to take a hunting trip where it was totally, utterly, and completely off-grid.  He finally had the chance to make this happen in the Fall of 2018.  They drove a billion hours, then went on horseback another 30 or so miles into the woods of Northern Idaho.  Basically, you got ¼” off balance and you were in Canada.  The trip itself ended up being a bust – it snowed so hard they mostly were in their tents drinking whiskey talking about their glory days.  However – when he got home he asked, “Hey, have you ever been to Northern Idaho?”.  That – that is the moment that changed our lives forever.

Me: “ummmmm, no I don’t think so.  I’ve been to Boise but that isn’t that far North.”  

Him: “I really think you’d love the area I’m thinking about – let’s maybe take a weekend trip and check it out.” (still seemingly innocuous….)

Me:  “Ok yeah that sounds great!” (I could sit in a closet by myself to drink a cup of hot coffee and think that is glorious so an actual trip with mascara and real pants was like a whole new level!).

The Beauty That Is Living In Idaho

We ended up taking a trip for Valentine’s Day 2019.  We stayed in a town called  Couer d’Alene and let me tell you IT WAS AMAZING!!!  Not only is it beautiful – mountains, lakes, beaches – but the people are SO nice.  Very welcoming, warm, chatty.  We drove everywhere in the area – we’d drive for hours in a day to take it all in.  We ended up in a town called Sandpoint.  DAR-LING.  Had dinner, talked about all of the what if’s….  We flew home thinking “hmm, that really felt like home…”  

Look for the next post!  
So, we did a thing…

When I kept waking up cold night before last, I decided comfort was worth switching from ac to heat.😊

Well I live in South Carolina, so it’s usually January before I turn mine on, then it’s like for a few days then it’s back to the air conditioning

I havent turned mine on yet

I don't have mine on in fact I had my window open and fan on me last night when I was sleeping
