To Forge A New Trail

This verse always seems to creep up on me when I find myself in any kind of season of change or new opportunity. I know that I am not the first pilgrim who has walked this earth who has drawn strength and excitement from the words of Isaiah the Prophet:

For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43: 19 NLT

I got a visual picture of this a few weeks ago when I was in Pennsylvania on a trip to the Laurel Highlands Jeep Jamboree. Jeff and I got an amazing opportunity to go to this event and represent Jeep as band advocates. There in the middle of a tree dense forest, our Jeep Rubicon started making a new pathway through the wilderness. [Read more…]

It is Almost Here…Jeep Jamboree in Laurel Highlands PA

Tomorrow Jeff and I board a plane to take us to Pennsylvania. I can hardly believe that the Jeep Jamboree Laurel Highlands is almost here. I caught this on The Vermont Jeep Girl’s Facebook page this week and it totally got me stoked for the upcoming trip (and yes, I just used the word stoked):

 

This week I am finding myself needing a little escape from the normal.

A Fun Little Jeep Announcement

 

Remember a few weeks ago when I shared that I had been praying for something for weeks, but the answer came back loud and clear NO? Yeah, that was not a fun day.

Then something unexpected happened that was a huge YES. Remember? Well I finally get to share with everyone what happened.

Over on the Rocky Mountain Media Group blog today Jeff and I announced to our friends and clients about being contacted by corporate Jeep and being asked to be brand advocates. You can read all about the official announcement here.

Why Colorado Is Finally Home

My fascination with the west started when I was kid. Sunday afternoons spent watching cowboy shows, Coors beer commercials and movies like The Wilderness Family fueled my youthful curiosity of Colorado.

As I grew up, got married and started having my own children, my childhood dream of living in Colorado began to unfold like a story from a book. My husband accepted a job to work in Colorado Springs in the summer of 1997 right after the birth of our son. I remember spending the better part of that summer packing boxes and trying to get my infant to sleep. I solidified my resolve for Colorado by playing John Denver music over and over again in the middle of the night to prepare myself for the move.

Friday with Freda ~ You Are Never Too Old For A New Adventure

“This is the most beautiful place I have ever been!”

That is what she told me as we strolled around looking up at the beautiful red rock formations pressed against a crystal blue sky.

This week we packed up the family and Grandma in the Jeep and headed to Garden of the Gods. If you live in Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods is a staple attraction where you to take out-of-town family and guests. If you have time to only do one thing, this is it. Words can’t describe it, the landscape is simply stunning.

Friday with Freda ~ Somethings You Are Never Too Old To Try

Since my Grandma Freda moved in with us last year, there have been a multitude of “firsts” for her. It started with her first trip ever on an airplane to move to Colorado with us. She still talks about the journey and hopefully it wasn’t her last plane ride! There are just some things you are never too old to try I guess.

Here is just some of the things she has proved you are never to old to try since moving in with our crazy family:

1. Jeff convinced Grandma to ride in his Jeep with the top off. She LOVED it, and can’t wait to do it again this Summer.
