Hello. Are you still here? Are those crickets I hear as background music? I am back. It has been a while, I know. Life has a way of getting a bit out of control. Shall I say, chaotic? Fortunately the chaos was expected and perfect and amazing. I have spent the last few months running… Continue reading Are you still here?
We moved to our home near Franktown, Colorado almost 3 years ago. This property has intrigued me since the day we moved in. It is 37 acres of farmland, hills, flats, Ponderosa pine forests and a dam with a natural spring. I realize I love the history of this area. I have done a bit… Continue reading The Old Apple Tree
One of my all-time favorite books, by Italo Calvino, is Invisible Cities. As expected, it is probably the wanderlust in my blood, but each City is a place I feel like I have been.

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I love this day because it is so relaxed and a special way to welcome Spring! Most of our hens lay brown eggs, so my daughter decorated with Sharpies this year. And today is extra special as it is my 17th wedding anniversary. Here is my special… Continue reading Happy Easter
