This morning I went on a walk with our dog Buttercup. It was a beautiful morning and at one point I stopped (so she could do her ‘business’) and I looked up and saw this beautiful tree.


When we started walking again, I saw that the tree was obscuring some pretty amazing hot air balloons!


It got me thinking about how our view/perspective determines our world. And although the tree was beautiful, by taking a small step to the right (or left, this isn’t about politics :), a whole different beauty emerged.

Be open to fresh ideas, new viewpoints and be prepared for un-seen beauty.

I am grateful for changing perspectives!


Colorado Camping

What a fun weekend! My family and I went camping outside of Estes Park this weekend. We tried out our new (awesome) tent, our almost new kayak and we had a blast! We connected with each other, nature and with life and laughter! I am blessed and I am thankful!

Estes Escape

Good morning! This weekend we took a quick one day/one night excursion to Estes Park as a family. It was great! We saw elk and deer, stayed in the Aspire Estates at the Infamous Stanley Hotel, enjoyed some amazing food and beverages (I had a bison ribeye), purchased some fantastic salt water taffy (sea salt and Carmel or Texas pecan were the best) and enjoyed true connection as a family. I am grateful for the ability to take little escapes, the love our family shares, and the beauty of Colorado!
