A Snow Day Social Distancing Adventure!
So, I was ready to post a funny story about my love for a sport played outdoors. Then I woke up this morning. I looked out the window and POW! The few inches predicted in Boulder, Colorado turned into 12 and it's supposed to snow all day. I went out in search of a snow... Continue Reading →
Stressed but Blessed!
Although I am blessed, the holidays can be a crazy stressful time for me.

The Best of Versailles
Mary Antoinette's stomping grounds, Palace of Versailles, is a must-see if you ever travel to Paris. After a short train ride, nothing could prepare me for what lay right around the corner. It was more sumptuous, grand, and had more gold gilt and marble than I had imagined. Truly humbled by the massive palace, Danny,... Continue Reading →
