I'm going to split this blog into separate features. I'm not a massive fan of social media because of what it can do to people. Let's try to focus on what's GREAT about the digital connection from my phone to yours. I love taking pictures because it's the one thing that makes you smile, cry, and laugh without saying a word. I thought it might be kind of cool to post up some photos from our listener's point of view. I just wanted to share your vision of what you saw across the Treasure Valley.

I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for hanging out with us over the last week. It was a great way to enjoy Idaho without all the distractions we endure on a daily basis.

Let's start with an amazing woman that I aspire to be like. Maggie O'Mara from KTVB News Channel 7. We don't hang out over drinks, vacations, or get together's. Maggie is just a great, hard working mom in the broadcasting realm that is genuine. I adore her family and she's got an awesome husband. Check out her Instagram post.

This one is a great shot from the Idahodaily.

This next photo is the greatness of living in Boise, Idaho and the event itself. Check out the kids in their pajamas running outside because a frigging hot air balloon just landed in their yard. How cool is that!
