The Men in My Life. . .

There are two very important men in my life. First, my hubby, Charlie. The second, my dad, Don. This past week I got to spend some AWESOME time with both of them. It started with an impromptu visit to Sedona to hang out with my dad. We went running through the red rocks of Sedona. I’m so blessed to be able to run shoulder-to-shoulder with my dad. If you don’t remember, he’s the one who did the 3,100 mile bike ride across the country , so you can guess where I inherited the genes for extreme/endurance sports. But hey, I’m[…]

When was it Love? –Week of Love

First, they’re awesome role models (married 43 years now!) Second, their faith continually astounds me. Third–well, there is no third, I just KNEW they were the people to do it. But when Lynn and RG made their way to the podium, I got a little nervous because I saw Lynn carrying a piece of paper. It was then that I knew she’d written something down.
