John & Alison

  One of the difficulties of living abroad for a few years was being so far from family. That big pond in between us made going home frequently, especially during the holidays, nearly impossible. We were so fortunate to have dear friends celebrate and live life alongside us during those years. One couple in particular, …

Today is one of my favorite kind of days, gray and rainy with the occasional thunder. Something about growing up in Colorado that makes me love this summertime weather. It does make me want to abandon work for a good book, my favorite spot on the sofa, and a yummy cup of hot chocolate though! …
