The Habit of Experiential Hospitality Outperforms New Year’s Optimism Jan 03, 2023

Day 2, New Year 2023

It’s been said that "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." However you received it, it has arrived. Frankly, I was a little surprised at my own response to New Year's Day arriving on schedule....

Christmas Morning, 2022 Dec 25, 2022

Agonizing over writing a holiday post seems ludicrous and yet I struggled to the point that I abandoned the effort yesterday. My heart was heavy and my mind chaotic as I vacillated, hesitating as to whether I ought to share my thoughts or not. As I weighed out all the ramifications of various...

The Very Life of Life Nov 14, 2022

Like many girls of my generation, I didn’t spend much time with my father  as I was growing up. Consequently, every interaction we did have was magnified and many “single frame” memories stand out. When I turned 12, he gave me a beautiful and thoughtful birthday card, which...

Small Journeys = Tall Transformation Nov 11, 2022

Any Colorado ski town in high season is predictably exciting; buzzing with energy, bustling crowds of people and air as thick with exuberance as it is with snowflakes. Visiting during a shoulder season shows the softer side of a place and Steamboat Springs is no different.

Your Haunted Places Oct 28, 2022


“When we feel haunted, it is the pull of our own home we're experiencing, but a more upsetting possibility is that the past has become homeless, and we are offering it a place to inhabit in the present.”

― Yiyun Li, Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

Starting Over Again on Monday Oct 28, 2022

I really fell off my “game” this summer. Not only did I not reach the top of the mountain, but I wandered on some very narrow ridges and lingered on pathways that led nowhere. I missed the target, fell flat, missed the boat, blundered, floundered, declined, bit the dust, flopped,...

Tuesday 2-22-2022 Feb 22, 2022

In case you didn't know... it's Tuesday! (and it's likely you'll be receiving a bunch of twosday emails!)

I don't know about you, but I started getting confused about holidays around the time my kids were old enough to have "days off" because of them. Always being self-employed,...

Staying Connected πŸ’– Memories and Moments Feb 19, 2022

To all my friends, old and new...

If you're on Facebook at all, you know how those memories show up on your timeline. Yesterday I had one pop up that reminded me that exactly 6 years ago we announced the opening of a business I poured my blood, sweat, tears and heart into. 

It was a glorious...

Born or Made? Jan 26, 2022

Were you just born that way or do you practice being the boss of everything?? Those words were slung at me across the school playground as I skipped up the concrete steps towards home. Like an over shot arrow, the prediction they carried flew right over my head and I glanced, puzzled at the...

How Not to Have a Blue Monday Jan 17, 2022

This photo, of course, does not do the experience justice.  Photos rarely do.

I woke up this morning to a most brilliant, beautiful moon. I cannot describe the magical, joyful power I felt when gazing at the miracle of the moon.

The magic all started last night in the dark, when the moon...

The best of times? The worst of times? Normal? Oct 04, 2021

The opening paragraph of Dicken’s beloved classic is curiously relevant and elicits the poignant reminder that

 It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of...

Passion - The Dirty Word That Cleans Up Your Desk Oct 02, 2021

Let's get intimate. If you’re a bit like me, it may be time to admit you’re passionate. Sure, at first glance it may lower your credibility. After all, passion is not pretty. In fact it can be a dirty word in business. It belongs in the fluff zone, where words that don’t...
