Surprise! Visit From My Brother

My brother Josh surprised me and drove more than 19 hours straight from Breckenridge Colorado to make it to my art opening! I couldn’t believe everyone kept it a total secret and I’ve been lucky enough to hang out with him all this past week!

We went bowling, headed up north and hopped on a few ATVs to go racing through the sand dunes, spent the day on the lake,
saw some music in Madison, including this band.
took down my art show,
played tennis with his adorable dog Scotch,
ate more fabulous food, and went for more hikes.
It’s been a little mini-vacation! And I wish we lived closer so we could always hang out, but for now I look forward to heading out and visiting him soon in Colorado.


  1. Sounds lovely – what a fun “mini vacation” you had with your brother! Great surprise!

  2. yes you should come out and visit us in colorado!! especially now since we have hopefully, officially banished snow for the season!! LOL!!

  3. Hi Juliette. What a fun mini vacation with your brother. It was so nice of him to surprise you at your art opening. What a wonderful gesture by him. Glad everything well well. Have a great day.

  4. Ooh lovely! sounds like you had the best time ever! Makes me miss my brother (who is in the UK) Have a great day my friend xx

  5. Yep, Louise. I never realize just how much I need to visit my brother until he visits me 🙂

  6. AWESOME!!! Siblings are the BEST! That's why I just had a baby! So Aili and Kai could be siblings 🙂

  7. what a great surprise.

    i am so lucky that my brother lives in town and that i get to spend a lot of time with him.

    having said that tho, sometimes it seems we spend as much quality time with our out-of-town friends and family if not more. we clear our schedule for an out of town guest, but when we know we can see someone “anytime”, it seems harder to find time. ???

    anyway, glad you had your mini vacation! sounds so fun-

  8. what a wonderful surprise for you! I'm so happy you got to hang out like that. There's nothing like the support of family.

  9. dearest juliette,

  10. Oh, I'm so happy for you! I think it's so cool when siblings can become friends as grown-ups. I totally adore my brother, too, and cherish the time I get to spend with him. And I love a good surprise that's made out of LOVE. So awesome of your family to know you'd be tickled pink!
