  •  Even with the Gecko, lost luggage, missed flight, unplanned night in Denver, and serious nausea, it’s my favorite vacation ever.  Those who know me know I love vacations and I love to plan and prepare things, it’s both a blessing and a curse.  So, upon hearing I could plan for my mom and me to go...

  •             Let’s fly on down to the beautiful sunshine state. Picture cool sand in between your toes. The wind blowing through your hair. Close your eyes and just listen to the sound of the waves crashing. Feel the cool water skim over your feet. Taste the splash of wild berry sensation in...

  • Grandpa tossed two helmets under the passenger seat and revved the engine.  “I’m not wearing one.” He shoved his hand into the Skittles bag.  “Me neither,” I tested. His glacier gaze cracked; an impish grin exposed a gold molar. I never knew the Smokies were so close to my grandparent’s retirement...

  •  Nature is everywhere, seen by everybody, but not everyone realizes the true beauty. I live on a farm in Montana.
