If You Have Been Wondering {Go Ahead And Ask}

Once or twice a year I love to have a question/answer series on my blog. Usually whatever you are wondering..so is someone else. I get a lot of emails asking me about business and family stuff so I am assuming that others may have the same questions. This is an easier and faster way for me to respond. So…if you have a question for me….let it rip. Seriously, it can be about anything. Anything you want to know about me …

Electric Boobs {and a few other mistakes}

The year was 1980 something. I was pulling into our driveway with my sister in the passenger seat. The radio was on and I was singing along. When the car came to a stop my sister looked at me and said something like, “Jeanne, I can’t believe you are singing that!!  That is disgusting!” I had NO idea what she was talking about. I looked at her, “What?” She responded back with a tone that can only be conveyed in …

Totally Rad {dude}

(Kelly is all the way to the left) I met Kelly a little over 13 years ago. The first time I was at his house I asked him why he had a kids bike. He didn’t appreciate that too much! That was my introduction to BMX. (Kel is second from the right) Many bikes later, many hours spent watching Kelly and the kids at the skate park, countless photos taken…..I fully understand why my husband loves BMX. Kelly builds bikes, …

Can You Smell The Bug Spray?

Every year we head to Illinois to my parent’s farm for a few weeks. We headed home because we were needed this year…or maybe we just needed to be with people we love. This year our hearts were heavy because of the hurt that was back there….but we still found joy.  We still laughed.  We cried too…but having the children with us really helped. So even though we traveled to where the hurt was….we know there will be healing. I …

Protect This House {I Will}

(pause my music below before you watch the video) This week I went into Under Armour to get some new clothes for Jack. Every time I am in there I love their slogan. I think it is genius and it is thought provoking to me. {Protect This House. I Will} We make choices every day in how we care for our bodies. Right now I am not wanting to write about protecting our bodies and keeping them healthy. I am …

What Do You Feel?

Isn’t it amazing how deeply art can touch you? Within minutes of being at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival I was in a man’s booth and one of his art pieces almost brought me to tears. Later in the day my sister was able to see an artist that I adore and she called me telling me that she could have cried because her art was so touching. But art doesn’t just move you to tears.  Art can be repulsive …
