Once Around the Sun

Colorado SkyWe have a book in our family room purchased in 2007 on a vacation to Yellowstone National Park.

Once Around the Sun.

It is one of those books where I almost love the title as much as the actual pictures in the book. The whole concept the author/photographer was going for is to show the ebb and flow of nature throughout one whole year in America’s first national park.

This year my life has had a once around the sun feel to it.

 

This time last year the holidays started off rough. I was moving my grandma into assisted living. I was also beginning a season about this time last year that rocked my world and forced me to work through some tough family junk and grief that I had left unresolved in my heart for years. Eventually with a lot of grace, I began to open up myself to healing and new possibilities. [Read more…]

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.

When Work Takes You Away From Home

This week rm2g work is taking me away from the kids, grandma and home.

It is a hard week to get on a plane and fly. My team at FLS will be missed. We have a son who has to take finals, a daughter who is wrapping up six years of elementary school and a grandma who does not like it when I am not home.

But we must go. We must go do this work, because it is a calling. So what is the the driving force for good when work takes you away from home? It is simple for me this week: there are stories in Oregon that must be told. Getting on the plane I am inspired by this quote:
