It's snowing again

Hello from Colorado. Yes, it is snowing again but it's sooooo okay. The mountains are so beautiful here and of course it is ski season. We spent the weekend skiing in the Roaring Fork Valley with one day on Buttermilk then the next day at my favorite Snowmass Mountain. It was a beautiful day skiing with my girls and Josiah. Time with family here in Colorado is a wonderful treat and very much needed. Tomorrow we make the trek back home to IOWA! Even though the snow covered mountains are one of God's greatest creations there really is "no place like home". I LOVE IOWA!!

Very soon the grass will be turning green, the farmers will once again be in the fields planting their crops and wedding season will be in full swing. I am so excited for this year!

I read a quote from THREE CUPS OF TEA by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin

"....we drink three cups of tea to do business; the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend, and the third, you join our family and for our family we are prepared to do anything..."
