Colorado Creatures

Recently, Zac and I flew to Colorado for one of my dearest friend’s wedding. We stayed in an Air B & B with some other friends – so Zac was basically living in a house of women for two nights ha. The day before the wedding, we all agreed to go to the local Denver…

Thanksgiving Sometimes when you Don’t have the words To say just how Thankful You are, Mashed potatoes, Turkey and gravy Seem to say It all. ………………… Brother The day after Thanksgiving Has always been one of My favorites.

Showered in Surprise

On November 10th, I was convinced I was going to a baby shower, but come to find out, I was in for an unexpected surprise. Leading up to the shower, I was complaining to Zac about how I wasn’t feeling well and that I wanted to stay home (lol – imagine?) But I got myself…

Death, it’s a curious thing. This morning I was driving to work, and about 2/3rds of the way in, I hit some traffic. At first I got annoyed because one, I didn’t want to be late, and two, it was probably some sort of construction project that should have been completed months ago. It wasn’t…
