Running Buddies.

Another successful attempt to involve my kids in running.  These two accompanied me to their first official trail race today.  It was so fun to see them take in a new experience. Aiden is what I call a reluctant runner; he balks when I suggest a run, but then he returns from his run grinning […]

Amazing.

That’s the word I choose today. Amazing.  My daughter is an amazing human being. Abby just turned nine.  She has constantly surprised me these past nine years.  She is incredibly intuitive, intelligent, deeply spiritual, and so down to earth.  She is everything I would want her to be, neatly packaged in a beautiful and wonderful […]
