Tomorrow Will Never Come

I have been hesitant to post my first blog here. I blog in other locations, but thought I would do something profound here. Something that would make you stop and ponder your existence.

Sooooo not going to happen!

Here's what I am really about: loving, laughing, giving, LIVING!! It's not all about me, as much as I might want it to be.

I thought maybe I would get my act together before I really put myself out there to the world, but tomorrow may never come. I'm actually not a "goom and gloom" kind of person, I'm just stating the obvious. Like that plane that just went down on it's way to France. None of those people thought tomorrow would never come. But it didn't.

If tomorrow doesn't come... if this is the first and last you hear of me, hear this. There is hope. Hope has a name: Jesus.

Oh, I know. Believe me, I know. Christians have this sick connotation in modern America. We are hypocritical and out of touch. We are lame and uncool. We are definitely prude and we absolutely hate gays, right? Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong. Okay, maybe not wrong about lame and uncool. I have definitely met some lame and uncool Christians. LOL! But seriously, if there is one thing I want you to hear from me it is this: I love life!! If you are alive - I love you too.

Mostly, I love being a mom and I love encouraging other moms! It's hard work being a mom and if we don't band together, those little people are going to take us down!

So now you know pretty much everything about me. I love Jesus. I love my kids. I love my husband (I really do always love him even though sometimes I push him to the edge of sanity with my shenanigans...).

All of the other stuff is just details. I'll share some of those details in the months and years to come. You'll be surprised, and I definitely hope you'll laugh. Welcome to the ride!

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees.

What a deal!!
