I see them Sad eyes Blank stares Shallow conversation Going through the motions “Is this all there is?” Cries from their empty insides I wonder what their stories are and what brought them here, and if they will ever wake up and escape? Do they even know it’s possible? And then I wonder If what…
Afternoon in paradise
The clouds swirled above in multiple layers Shifting from wind, rain, sunshine We were in the arc of a rainbow I wondered if three different days passed. Twin peaks stood in stark contrast Conducting the clouds Casting gold dust and shadow in the valley I rested in their enduring majesty. The spruce and the aspen…
The warm ocean breeze Was a rhythm in my veins Singing never forget where you come From. The sand fell away beneath my toes But the salty foam tide Enveloped my feet Securing me in the Presence. On the edge of the earth I met the Center of my soul.
I hate getting behind on here. Every day that goes by that I haven’t updated about certain things adds to the stress of having to write one long, boring blog post. And so then I keep avoiding it and the problem spirals deeper. We are anxiously awaiting Spring! Last week we had that little tease…
There’s been a lack of blog posts lately but for pretty good reason. We’ve been busy and I guess I haven’t needed to complain about anything.

My favorite “easy” drink were the Bahama Mamas and Pina Coladas (though the Pina’s were better with an extra…
Home Sweet Home!
Flying home from a vacation never felt so good! As soon as our plane touched down from today’s bumpy, windy landing in KC, I wanted to burst out with tears of joy! We were home safely and would be seeing Skyler very soon. We are super exhausted from what we wish would’ve been an amazing…
