There is something about the end of the year, after Christmas but before New Year's Eve /New Years Day for me that brings the desire to "New Year Clean" if you will.  What it looks like varies from year to year but this year I am finding it feels more compelling, almost like a need instead of a w...
Colorado Springs is fortunate in terms of where it is geographically.  Located 1 hour South of Denver on I-25 with Pikes Peak directly to the West it not only has stunning beauty but also offers great access to several ski resorts.  A great benefit is being able to go the "back way" and not have ...

This holiday season has felt weird.  For some reason the usual Christmas Spirit, love of decorating for the holidays, planning & attending parties just seemed flat.  Looking back I realized that right at Thanksgiving I came down with a terrible flu/cold that turned into a much worse situation and...
New to Colorado Springs the first holiday is a time of discovering those "go to stores" that may not be on yuor weekly list but certainly show up for holiday shopping and decorating.  If you have not had time to find stores you love here are several that I think are great finds. Rich Designs - lo...
Today I discovered a great new find in Colorado Springs.  For many who have a furry friend join their families as a Christmas present Emergency Vets & their locations can be critical to know about.  Whether it be a concern about a physical symptom or an emergency situation having pet emergency se...
