Blessings

With all of the pretty pictures we see on social media expressing visions of lives perfected to that of extreme luxury, adventure, travel, friendship, family and love so accomplished as to look flawless, remember that most of it is simply an illusion. We only allow you to peek through the window into the room that has been swept clean of all imperfections, while the closet is full of skeletons and debris, as no life is so impeccable as we often put in front of others on social feeds. Our families do not look like the Brady Bunch. Many of...

Fresh Lemon and Ginger Scones

Spring is most definitely in the air. A crisp whisper of a breeze, blue skies and the greening of our mountains is a lovely thing to wake up to. It’s warm enough to walk outside onto our deck in bare feet with my pup to survey the new plants and trees that are finally popping open. Spring happens a little later at 7,000 feet, but it is still exciting when it arrives.

November has been a historic and wild month for us Americans. The political scene has made for an emotional rollercoaster and a myriad of distractions. Now that the election is over, I hope for peace, kindness, inclusion, compassion and for love to prevail. As John Lennon said in his song Imagine, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”. Summer seemed to hang on in Colorado, stretching its long arms to embrace the fall season, giving us only the slightest hint of cooler days to come. Eighty degrees yesterday, but today will bring snow. This is how...

Grabbed {mature content and language}

“What is the big deal?” I hear so many of you ask. It’s a big deal because it hurts women like me. It opens up a painful, gaping wound that took so long to heal. It’s because it strikes a cord in the pit of many womens’ stomachs who suffered at the hands and words of men who pushed us into a collective corner and grabbed our pussies. It hurts because those who say it’s nothing worse than raunchy banter are, at the end of the day, complicit in perpetuating verbal and sexual abuse by not holding the perpetrators...
