In Others’ Words: Small Joys

Just for today, let’s set aside the word “goal,” shall we?

In Others’ Words: Present, Past, Future Living

  I got away to Breckenridge, CO this past weekend, enjoying some down time with my husband and youngest daughter — including the best gluten-free French onion soup I’ve ever tasted.

My daughter is finishing up her required summer reading. (Three books. And papers.) And we’re also doing all the necessary prep. Shopping. Filling out school forms. Her sports physical is done. And we’ll be doing more ... Read More »
