Monday Morning Quick Takes

Colorado and the California Zephyr

Colorado and the California Zephyr

Imagine it with me, friends.  Exploring the city on foot, taking train tunnels straight to Narnia.  Beer tastings and amazing breakfasts.  Fabulous hotels, excellent coffees, and views to die for.  Does that sound like a good time to you? Almost two weeks ago now, Greg […]

Fifteen years.  I’ve been at this SAHM gig for 15 whole years now.  How is that even possible? Well, I’ll tell you how.  Time flies, man.  Time flies. I became a mom, and therefore a working mom, while I was an elementary school teacher in […]

Something’s Coming
