After a crazy first few months of 2012 were I went to another course in Abu Dhabi for 1 month, worked offshore for 40 of 60 days working, and then after 2 days off worked another 60 days, I finally was given time off. In all I had accumulated 17 days off . . . not vacations! It was a good thing getting that much time off but man was I tired!!
With the days off I decided to go back to the states where first I went to Raleigh for Jake's 1st birthday party. I was so thankful for being able to make it in time because for once I could be part of the family not just seeing pictures and hearing about what fun the had together. I can not believe how fast his first year went!

After leaving the world for a week I came back around in time to go to Colorado to see my bestie, Sarah!! I had not seen her in waaaaayyyyy to long! I ended up going for close to a week and it was great just spending time with her and fellowship with other people that I would say and similar to me!! I will write more about Colorado in the next post, but below is a taste of the beauty that is Colorado!
