Closures and Detours

      It's funny. I had a completely different post scheduled to go out tomorrow. Maybe not completely different, but, with a different direction, a different outcome, even though the theme was the same. It had a beautiful shot of the mountains, and a message that was uplifting and gratitude centered; maybe I'll share it... Continue Reading →

Grateful for My People

Have you ever sat back and just reviewed the things happening in your life and around you, and thought, "Wow. This is wild." I have had a lot of those moments lately.
