Summer 2023

I don't why but I fell through the blog rabbit hole this morning and was reminded how much I loved not only having a blog but reading other's blogs. Instagram will forever be my favorite social media outlet but there's just something so much more personal about a blog. Anyhoo! The summer of 2023 will forever remind me of the summer I took a giant leap in jumping out of my comfort zone and how I lost so much that summer. We packed up all our beglongings in May into Uhaul storage containers...drove down to Oklahoma to pick up some photos and momementos of my mom's and then drove down to Pensacola, Fl. I had always wanted to take Daisy & lucky to the beach and it was time to at least take Daisy! We met up with one of my cousins whom I hadn't seen in nearly 30 years! There was yummy donuts, antiquing, beach time & pug cousin meetings! We spent 110 days living in Nashville, but who's counting? Life changed in every direction for me in those 110 days. There were many days filled immeasureable sadness, disbelief, & grieving. You know what the good thing about so much sadness? It can only get better from there! Before we left Nashville to move back to Colorado we made another trip to Florida..it was bitter sweet as we had a great time but sad because I think it will be a long while before I see the ocean again. I have loved the ocean since I was 10 years old and I think some day, I hope, that it will be my forever home. I'll try to not make it a year or two before I post again and if you read this, say hey!

What is time?

Wow, I can not belive it's been 3 years since I last posted...what is time anymore? So much has happened in the past 3 years! A pandemic! I lost my sweet soul of a best friend, Lucky suddenly in early 2021 only to follow with losing my mom tragically later that year. And after having our house on the market for 2 years (yes, this is a thing!) making less than $200 on that sale to moving back to Colorado & finding out just how hard it is to move to not only a new state (post pandemic) but one of the most expensive states in the US. All that aside from the start of the pandemic was in 2021. One might say that 2021 will probably be the worst years of my life.

This past Spring delivered quite the storms and while I got some cool shots I am not sad to see this Tornado season go.

California Dreamin'

My husband & I took a rather spur of the moment trip to 'home' aka Southern California. We hadn't been back in 15 years so we were interested to see how it had grown & changed. We spent a lot of time with my cousin & her family..it was one of the best vacations we've had! We spent 2 days at Disneyland & 1 day at Disney California Adventure. We had a lot of fun but oh my goodness was it a lot of walking but still a lot of fun.

Happy New year! I have high hopes for 2019 as 2018 was a bit tough, trying, exhausting, frustrating, enlightening...I could go on! The past few years I have picked a word to focus on & this year my word is 'forgiveness'. Do you have a word that you need to focus on or something you need to improve upon?

This year I want to be more in the moment, spend more time creating, more time treating my body better & being kinder to others. What would you like to improve on this year?

*I took this photo a couple of months ago while on the phone talking to my aunt about my grandpa (who passed away 26 years ago) & then these clouds appeared, it's like he was smiling down on me!:) I love this photo so much!
