Jeff and Dina

This post is dedicated to memories; to life and to its journey. 

In 2001, I set out to find what exists outside of Wisconsin's green, tree-filled boarders. I packed my little silver Saturn to capacity and landed in sunny LA, CA. As dad headed back to WI, I sobbed, wondering if I had made the right decision. 

Jeff and Dina opened their home to me. They showed me the ropes and helped me acclimate to Hermosa Beach.  Jeff made  sure I remembered to laugh and Dina was like a big sister to me, always there to listen, give advice and help me navigate my way.

Years have passed and we both now live in Colorado, have families of our own and have created paths for our lives. As they set out on their next journey to Saudi Arabia, I just want to reflect on all the good thats come of the moments, memories and milestones we've shared.  Love you guys and miss you already!!!

Lazy Summer Days

From time to time it's nice to find a little time to just unwind.

Believe it or not this is a saying that was on a little pencil pouch I had as a child. I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I tend to put words to song in my everyday was no different for me, as a kid. Because my friend and I put those words to a tune, as we giggled like giddy school girls, I can still remember them to this day. How true it is! We do need to find time to just relax. To just BE

We finally had a chance this weekend to enjoy Denver and enjoy some of the things in our own backyard that make us smile. Refreshing, to say the least. 

Rain gauge fun!


Sisters. Enjoying life. 

Life can get going so fast. Remember to take time to enjoy the simple things.

 Life is a journey not a destination. Enjoy every moment.
