West Virginia

Craig and I go to the beautiful Canaan Valley in West Virginia each year on our anniversary and we head out today to celebrate our 10Th. We have very generous friends who have a ski home there, which is what most people go there for, so it is fairly empty when we go in August. I woke up with a horrible sore throat yesterday, so hopefully I will be ready for a hike tomorrow.
I am so thrilled to be able to get back deep into the woods.

from our 2007 trip...Otter Creek Wilderness in the Monongahela Forest

I leave you all with this article one of four from Alyson Stanfield's brilliant blog:
The first of four steps to selling you art: Devote yourself completely to a studio practice
Talk to you all next week!

I love the Canaan Valley Resort. We went there with another family one year, and they were planning on camping in the state park next door, but when they saw our accomodations, they camped in our family room of the unit!

First off, Happy Anniversary to you and Craig!

I love nature so if you go into the woods be sure to take TONS of pictures!

Thanks the link as well. There's a lot of sound advice coming from Alyson Stanfield's blog.

Thanks, for the anniversary wishes, all. It was a wonderful time. I could LIVE in the forest.

Deb, Our friends' home is right up the road there at Northpoint. :)
