WHY?

Yes, we can all agree that 2020 sucked.  Then again, maybe not.  It made us value our friends and family more.  Not being able to be near the ones we love is horrifying, but it happened.  So, we did learn some precious lessons in 2020.  But then what?  Where did those amazing lessons go wrong?  … Continue reading WHY?

It is spring in Colorado, and the flowers are starting to come out and play. The fruit … Continue reading EVERYTHINGS IS BEAUTIFUL.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR HUMOR!

The greatest relief I have found in this scary world now is humor.  My own humor and the beautiful humor of friends and family. A very close bunch of family/friends (I label them "family" because they are all much closer to us than just friends.) had their two daughters with their families move to Ohio.  … Continue reading PLEASE KEEP YOUR HUMOR!
