Building a Creatively Made Business | Celebrate Milestones

My parents had been married a few years when I was born and with only a semester left in college my mom put it on hold to stay home with me. I was a senior in high school when my mom finished and earned her teaching degree. She didn’t walk across a stage and the degree came in the mail. I have thought often about what that felt like to open that envelope and see what she had worked for …

We Were Asked to Move Back To DC…

  About five weeks ago we were told (out of the blue) that Kelly’s agency was bringing all field agents back to DC.  This would be a mandatory reassignment. We would have until mid-September to be back in DC to still have a job.  We met in DC and our Jack was born there but we have been in Colorado for the past 16+ years and this has truly been home to us. I had just had a group of 17 …

Being a Tourist in Denver | Top Spots on My Birthday

I am a birthday girl and try to squeeze every last bit out of it on that day. When people say they don’t really care about their bday’s I do not relate to those people. At all. One day all about me and what I want to do and everyone smiles the whole day while they do my things? Perfection. If I am being completely honest I believe it is more like birthWEEK. If I am really lucky I start …

An Artist In France | Art and Words from the Living Studio Along the Seine Artists

The Living Studio would be about exploring a new place and creating art everywhere we went.  When we had scheduled classes they would be shorter to give you the techniques to get back to the museums, the cafes, the gardens and to have your sketchbook with you the whole time. I knew this style of workshop would not be for everyone but for …

There were words coming past their lips like, “I can’t even …
