To quote my son, “Oof.” 2020 was a year that I don’t think that anyone will ever forget. Unfortunately for many of us, that will be because of the craziness that happened in the world around us. A global pandemic, wildfires that threatened places we hold dear, social unrest, and a lengthy, stressful election season. […]Read More 2020
Ten years ago today we led a little caravan of cars up to a house on a cul-de-sac in Castle Pines and started a new adventure. We’d only been married for (almost) four months when we packed up the few things we owned and relocated to Colorado.
