Pura Vida!

We had such an amazing time in Costa Rica!! Family, fun, sun, rainforest, animals, no tv :-)! I am so grateful for my family, vacations, time together, my own business (so I can take time off)… life is amazing. PURA VIDA!



Yesterday we had a tremendously fun day at the office. We celebrated Mother’s Day with a Mom and Kids day. We had cupcakes, carnations, cards for the moms and wanted to serve as many families as we could! It was a ton of fun and we helped more people than we ever had previously! I am so thankful for my wonderful team at the office, my chiropractic assistants are rock stars! The families we get to treat are THE best people in the world!

I am also thankful for the other members of my team: my family, dr stiles the radiologist I send all my X-rays to for another set of eyes to look in to (we found a fractured pelvis on a new patient and therefore helped her get into surgery. She had been living with the pain for 4 months and a hospital missed the fracture previously), the awesome group of docs o text and talk to daily to get our head and hearts pointed in the right direction, and I am thankful for my friends outside of the chiropractic realm who enrich my soul.

I am grateful!!

What a weekend!

I am so grateful for this past weekend! I had the unique and amazing to see Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, and others at the National Achievers Conference in Denver on Thursday. It was wonderful and inspiring.

Friday Isaac had his 11th birthday party and we went to an Escape Room in Broomfield. It was a ton of fun! (And we escaped with less than 2 seconds to spare)!

On Saturday, we celebrated Mother’s Day as a family and with my mom and dad. We discovered a great new pizza place off South Pearl in Denver.

Sunday, we had soccer, flag football, relaxed a bit and then met Sheri’s parents for dinner at Anas Mexican Grill in Westminster.

I am so grateful for my family, my friends, my amazing wife, and my life!

My boys

Yesterday, Payton had his final 7th grade concert and he rocked! He was given two awards (one for the trumpet and one for maintaining first chair all year)

Last week Isaac went to regionals with his team for Battle of the Books! He and his team did amazing and I am so proud.

Perhaps the best though is a compliment from a patient of mine who lives in our neighborhood. Yesterday she told me “your boys are so polite and friendly. They are always respectful to adults and other children and it doesn’t go unnoticed. They are remarkable young men.”

I am so proud of my boys!

Inspiration, reminders in surprising places

Yesterday I was watching a cooking show on Netflix during my lunch. It was called: Chuck and Danny’s Road Trip. It’s about two chef buddies who pack up an RV, cruise around to places in Canada, find food grown and sourced directly from the land and put together an awesome meal over a campfire for all the people they meet during the trip. The people provide the ingredients, they make an amazing meal. Pretty cool actually!


At one point in the show, at the big campsite dinner, one of the growers (he supplied the wine and buffalo mozzarella) stated: “At the same time, doing something simply is really, really hard.” I loved that line. In my Chiropractic practice (as in many things in my life) we truly strive for simplicity, efficiency, connection and purity. We try to eliminate all obstacles between the patient and their care.

Sounds simple, but simple is hard.

I am thankful for the reminders of such things in surprising places!
