Vegas Paris Hotel

I’m talking about a group of like-minded individuals that you have grown to trust, have similar goals and are supporting you in accomplishing your goals as you support them. A tribe becomes more powerful as more of its’ members share their knowledge and participate equally, taking no more […]

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Karaoke

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays… Probably less than perfect, but still fun! What would Karaoke night be without a group of tone-deaf ladies full of liquid bravery taking the stage to belt the Cyndi Lauper chick anthem, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun?” Be thankful I don’t have video.

Facebook. What it is good for.

Tempe Trolley

Besides allowing you to voyeuristically sneak a peek at how all your ex-boyfriends and old crushes are managing now that they have to somehow persist without you in their lives, Facebook is also bringing people together… in the real world. I’ve had my own mini-reunions with dear college classmates, but this past weekend was the […]

Up, Up and Away!

Ang-n-Fia

People come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime it is often said. When I first met Angie, I had no idea the source of comfort she would become for me for the next year and a half. She would say, “God brought us here (to Denver) for a reason, and […]
