Until I have time to tell you all the stories I want to tell you: A few of my favorite pictures from my recent road trip from Portland to Minneapolis and back again (for fun! yes, and) to meet my new niece, who is even more adorable than photographic evidence suggests.
Visual learning is fun. (Speaking of, there are a great deal more pictures here, from my outbound trek and my Mer-cuddling time in Minneapolis.)
Still to come: The epic return and oh, the endless stories I have, about the endless gorgeous I saw, and the endless mosquitos that oh so enthusiastically and perpetually bit me, and my car that in a moment of swoony weakness for the Grand Tetons momentarily bit the dust.
