For those of you that have been around since this time last year when I was on my old blog and made some new years resolutions. I'm glad to report that I kept two of them. The first was "That I won't go to Cuba this year" Well I didn't go to Cuba so that is a win for me... I guess. (this was one of those resolutions I wanted to break) The other was that I would quit smoking. Which I accomplished the last week of 2011. So still a win for me I guess.
This means that I should come up with some new ones for this year. I'm going to keep the one I want to break but modify it. "I will not go on a tropical vacation this year." They say most people fail to keep their resolutions so... I'm going to lay on a beach somewhere. Another resolution I have is to get a girlfriend. Which means I have to date and keep her around to the point that we aren't just dating but have stepped into that "relationship" zone. The next one I have is probably going to help with that last one. I want to get a body that looks like this.
|Crazy, stupid, love.|
I know it is possible because he used to look like this....
I'll get the inspiration wherever I can.
Alright now that the New Years crap is all taken care of I'll tell you about my little vacation.
TL;DR "It was awesome"
|The sunset driving to the mountains.|

Those are all my pictures but I feel I didn't do it justice so here are some professional shots.
|A close up of the Chateau on the Lake. (I didn't stay there, I'm way too poor for that)|
|Banff Springs hotel (I didn't stay here either, still too poor.)|
There was a lot of good riding on the hill, some good quality time spent with family. I also saw the Beauty and the Beast Broadway show here in Calgary on New Years Eve.
Later days and much love,
