Weekend Wandering: My Mountain Fix

There is something very spiritual and healing about being in the mountains. It's the quiet. The exploring God's creation. The smell of the air. "To enjoy nature, is to enjoy God, they are one in the same." -Unknown Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending the day exploring Mt. Evans with a friend and... Continue Reading →

Summer is Officially O-V-E-R…Over

School started two weeks ago. That means summer is officially O-V-E-R...over. Bring on fall?! I thought I would dump a bunch of random photos here that have nothing to do with anything except...this was our life this summer. Reflecting on #Summer2015 And, finally, goodbye Summer 2015. It's time for schedules and homework and sport events... Continue Reading →

Some Days All You Can do is Phone it in

I remember when the girls were toddler sized. Those days they were up for just about anything, as long as I packed a sippy cup and Goldfish crackers. And, every Halloween was a production. We would spend an afternoon at the "fancy" Pumpkin Patch. That farm included small animals, a hay ride to pick a... Continue Reading →

175 Years of Photography | World Photo Day

It wasn't that long ago we waited days to get our pictures back from the lab just to see that our lighting was wrong or we inadvertently cut off someone's head in the shot. And there was no Photoshopping that! It seems like yesterday I begrudgingly traded in my film SLR camera for a fancy... Continue Reading →

Graphic Designer By Day

Something you may not know about me is that I am a graphic designer by day, a writer by night. (Seriously, I write mostly at night!) Shameless plug ahead...I have been using Redbubble for a few years to sell my graphic design and photography to the masses. Okay, "masses" my be stretching it a bit.... Continue Reading →

Alone in the City | Winter Photography

@ Stanley Lake, Colorado Living in a big city I feel like I am not really ever alone. Sure, I can be alone in my home, but when at the park, or on a walking trail, I always meet people there enjoying the same trail/park. And, it feels weird if I don't see people at... Continue Reading →

Everyday Joy | Echo Lake, CO

In 2013, my One Little Word was Joy. And part of that joy was doing things brings me, well, joy. Besides to attend art school, I moved to Colorado for the mountains. If I could, I would move to the mountains. I love the snow, the wildlife, the pine trees, all of it. It's my... Continue Reading →

Let’s go to the Zoo!

Last Friday it was 55 degrees. Saturday we woke up to 5" of snow. Gotta love living in Denver! The girls' winter break is over. All I have to say about that is "Hallelujah! And Amen!" They are driving me and each other crazy. Maybe it's because we haven't done a whole lot over the... Continue Reading →

New Joy Quote in the Shop

Last year I took a photography class at the Botanic Gardens (read about it here). Since meeting photographer Cedric Pollet at that class, I now look at bark in a different way. On a hike this summer, I photographed this tree with a bark heart near Mt. Evans, Colorado. Do What Brings You Joy. Add... Continue Reading →

Colorado Gold

This weekend: Guanella Pass for aspen spotting. It's a fall must-do if you live in Colorado (in my humble opinion). Pure Joy: Walking through this aspen forest I made a wrong step and twisted my ankle. Don't worry because I made a quick recovery with a Jason Bourne-style shoulder roll to the ground. It wasn't...

Now this is what I call a snow storm!

Finally...a real snow storm. My unofficial snow measuring system of a rusty tape measure on the backyard patio table shows 13". And, no school closures. What? If you remember last week the schools closed before snow started to fly, we ended up with 6.5"...and school was closed. What gives JeffCo? I had 2 very disappointed... Continue Reading →

I {heart} snow days?

It was a snow day yesterday. The first snow day of the school year. I was all excited until 10 a.m. when the fighting started. Fighting. Over. Markers. {sigh.} And, the forecast had everyone scared we were going to get 14" of snow that the school districts cancelled school before even one snowflake hit the... Continue Reading →

How to ride a pony.

Remember that Seinfeld episode where the gang is making fun of people who own ponies? Yeah, that was the first thing that popped into mind when a friend asked if we'd like to ride a pony. The kids, not me. Turns out it wasn't her pony. We went to a ranch-in-the-city that rents ponies. Got... Continue Reading →

Before I was a mother…

Before I had kids my favorite Saturday's were spent with my hubby. We'd sleep in late. Eat brunch at Denny's. He always got breakfast. Me, not being a breakfast fan, I got lunch. Then, we would head to one, or more, of our favorite antique malls. We'd spend the day looking around. Maybe we found... Continue Reading →

How do you use Instagram?

I take pictures with my phone or iPad and post them to Instagram, but I am not sure why...Yikes. Don't hate me. Don't get me wrong. I like technology. I argue with hubby that Instagraming/twittering/blogging/texting will help keep me in touch with young technology. In other words, it will keep me from turning into an... Continue Reading →
