I was not born a travelin’ man, but nature has her way

Emerging from the dank and smelly web development lair, winter light making me squint… Thanksgiving has been a kind of loaded holiday for me for the past few years. 2011: sucked. I was with the girls, but it was the last Thanksgiving at my mom’s. 2012: I...
My Girls

My Girls

Going through Christmas morning, 2012 shots and found this one. I love this so much. They are watching their mother open gifts and the look on both of their faces say so much. Definitely one for the scrapbook. Share...

A Time of Thanks and Whatnot

We are spending the first part of this week near Bear Lake. As I write this, at 4:44 PM, the sun is setting, it’s cold and there has been liberal use of butter in the recipes prepared today. Butter forecast for tomorrow is showing further increase. Arteries are...
