Unexpected getaways

This weekend, Payton was scheduled for a soccer game in Canon City (3 hour drive from home), we were informed the game was canceled as we were driving to Colorado Springs. We made a great weekend out of it! We stayed 2 nights at The Broadmoor (our favorite hotel)! We had great food, sang along to ragtime piano, drove through garden of the gods, went bowling, and had an absolute blast! We celebrated our anniversary a month early and The Broadmoor took care of us:-). What a fun, unexpected weekend!

I’m alive

This morning, I woke up a bit late, grabbed coffee and drove my son, Payton to school. I was a bit tired but was greeted with this view after dropping him off.

Then this song came up on my playlist

Ok, great reminder to be joyful that I am alive… then this song played immediately after

“It’s your heart, it’s alive, it’s pumping blood…and the whole wide world is whistling.”

I am so grateful to have these moments, this breath, this body, this family, this “job”, this experience, this LIFE!
