Welcome!

Oh! Hello there, you beautiful soul! Thank you for coming to take a look at what I hope to be an eclectic yet nonetheless intriguing and entertaining collection of anecdotes, philosophies, and sometimes just general mayhem.

This is my life that I decided to share. The intent is not to show off or to seek approval or to garner praise. It’s more…a celebration. And what’s a party without others to share it with!

For an introduction, let’s visit some highlights of experiences for the past year …

And there’s the lovely bride! Love these girls so much

Phew! It’s only up to April and I’ve already been to Mexico and to Texas, sharing some incredible experiences with some dearly-beloved companions. Not to mention experiencing the everyday magic of nature, right in your own backyard!

Now, on to Costa Rica to celebrate the life thus far of an incredible woman!

Okay, enough jet-setting across the globe…JUST KIDDING! The adventure never stops, and this time it took me to California. Not only was this a wonderful time to share the joys and amazement of nature with the two lovely people who brought me into this world, but also it was to celebrate my cousin Tom and his loving union with Kate. Wishing the best for both of them always!

Education is important too, right? Well, it’s lucky that I get to travel to awesome places like New Orleans to fill my brain with anything and everything Veterinary and Emergency Critical Care. And, I have the added benefit of bringing along some amazing friends too!

And then, the biggest adventure of the year was moving me and my entire life to Colorado. This was certainly a surreal experience, taking a step forward that had no certain ending. It’s incredible where life will take you sometimes, if you just listen to that little voice in the back of your head. Some call it intuition. Some call it Spirit. Some call it psychosis…but lets focus of the positive here. It was that voice that told me I needed something different from the stagnation that had become my way of life. And, hopefully, that voice will continue to lead me in a direction of joy, knowledge, challenge, hope, and peace.

Stay tuned for the next installment! Your guess is as good as mine about what’s going to happen and what you’re going to find here if you come back again. But, I hope you do, and I hope you’re not disappointed!
