Most days I miss you in moments. When our son laughs or our daughter wants an extra hug. When a memory arises that I can no longer share with you or when our children reach a milestone or make me proud. When a headline or seeing one of our friends reminds me that you arent... Continue Reading →
Three days in a row of rainbow sightings as we take stock and give thanks for what is. Jumping for joy and feeling it all. We have seen so many rainbows over the trampoline and on the beach in the past 8 and half years. Magical and Mysterious. 🌈❤️🙏
We are embracing and appreciating everything that we can. Enjoying the elements, growing, learning, expanding, cherishing, feeling, laughing and loving.

Seven years ago, winter had just begun and my family and I started to see brilliant rainbows. It was the last few days of Mick's time with us here in this life. He was drifting into a deep state of unconsciousness. It was clear that the end was close. I was about to lose my... Continue Reading →
As we returned home last night I looked at the sky and said to the kids, "It looks like rainbow weather." They agreed. A big storm had passed through a few hours earlier. There were still dark clouds about but they were beginning to clear. The grey light was bright. Sunlight was returning. We scoured... Continue Reading →
