Life with Paul…

Sarah / November 16, 2018

Paul has just returned from Poet Warrior – his first trip since Hurricane Irma.  The storm hit on a Wednesday, and while I will never know for sure, I think he was one of the first to get out of the Islands, on Saturday.   In the days after the storm, as looting and the realities of scarcity and desperation were…

One … no, wait … Three Blind Mice

So now that I’m back from Europe, I’ve told myself that it’s finally time to finish moving my stuff out of storage.  On Sunday, I brought home a bunch more boxes.  I got to moving stuff around and realized a few hours in that I had bit off more than I intended to, so I was exhausted. Near when I…

Close to Heaven

I came as close to heaven today as I’ve been yet. Wow … just wow. It is hard to find words to describe it. We left Zermatt early and caught the gondola to Schwarzee to beat the crowds. From there, we climbed up to the Hornlihutt.  The route goes across suspended walkways stuck to the side of the cliff. And…

Clicking Thru The Bucket List

Today is Day 8 in Europe … and it has been an AWESOME trip!!! If my calculations are correct, I’ve hiked 45.54 miles with 18,767 feet of vertical over 18 hours 28 minutes.  Hopefully my calves and quads are beginning to show it even a fraction as much as they feel it. Two favorite hikes so far.  The first is…

Travel, Argentiere, Le Chapeau and Amazing Dinner!

Next adventure!  Thanks to this summer’s flight schedule out of the Eagle airport, this trip got of to a SLOW start. After a night in Dallas, I got to the airport early to try to catch up with my friend Maddie on her layover from Houston back to Eagle.  But the flight gods weren’t smiling on her – which just…

Next Up … Mom Takes Europe!

The beautiful thing about life is that it just keeps on moving on.  I have so enjoyed being back at home for a few weeks.  I love this home so much and still every night say a quiet little prayer of thanks to the guys who built it for us. My besties and I have had fun staying fit, laughing…

Boats, Broken Dreams, and Best Friends

I really don’t know where to start, except with a broken heart that overflows with perfect memories, love and gratitude. As I approached Virgin Gorda, it hit me. I have spent each day since September 6 trying to find peace with the possibility of no longer having the people and places that hold some of my life’s most precious memories.…

I’ve caught the spontaneous bug (again)!

To say that our life has been upset for a year is kind of an understatement.  When I rewind, even I get a little overwhelmed.  Last spring, I flirted with an offer to join a firm in Texas with a couple of attorneys who are the best I have ever worked alongside – they made the practice of law really…

Our Shining Moment

Since I figured our life isn’t quite chaotic enough as it is, I decided that we needed a house change.  We’ve been in our last one for more than five years, and while it was lovely, Paul, Leo, Hailey and I just don’t need 5000 square feet.  Heck, we had 4 bedrooms we almost never used.  So, we’re joining the…

Serendipity!

Sarah / January 23, 2018

This morning, I had one of the most beautiful moments!  One of those moments where, if you are a spiritual person like I am, you pause and just know that there are other forces at work in this life. It was cold and I was all bundled up.  There is still ice and snow in the parking lot from the…
