Charlie’s first birthday!

Charlie before we met him!

Love at first sight! 😍

Charlie’s a great hiker and climber!

He reminds me to stop and smell the flowers.

He’s willing to get dirty in the name of fun!

And he is happy to get cleaned up and looking his best!

Charlie wants to operate heavy machinery.

Charlie loves forest life!

But the thing Charlie loves most is being close to Mama!

Happy birthday Charlie! 🎂💝🎂

Taking the scenic path

Two years ago I moved from Chicago which is well known for beautiful cityscapes to the Rocky Mountains which is equally well known for its breathtaking landscapes.

Today, as I reflect upon my daughter’s wedding yesterday, the second daughter to be married this year, and my own birthday, I’m definitely thinking about what path I have chosen.

Do we choose our path, or does it choose us?
