IMG_2510

Our last morning in Calgary started off on a great note. That note was Eric’s cell phone alarm screeching at us to get to the airport. Actually, I was already up. I’ve always been the annoying early riser, while he has always been the annoying “I hate mornings” person. We’ve reached a bitter conclusion. Neither […]
