Do you ever just feel "off?"  Like you need a break from any and everything you're doing in your whole, entire life?!  These past few weeks have been JUST LIKE THAT for me.  After a glorious, week-long trip to Vail, Colorado for business (and pleasure...hahahahaha!), I feel rejuvenated & refreshed...ready to take on life again!  The mountains do that to me... they HEAL ME.  They make me *ME* again.  More in a few days on our trip, but until then...
Atop Vail Mountain.  Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.

Also cannot seem to stay away from these daily postcard-like snapshots which occur nightly in our own back yard... we are so blessed.  Kansas has THE BEST sunsets IN THE WORLD, I am convinced...  And our new Designer Palms only add to the joy.  (Thanks, Troy!!!!!)

This is SO not Photoshopped, yo... see what I mean?  A damn postcard shot EVERY.  SINGLE.  NIGHT.
These clouds were phenomenal... here then gone in the blink of an eye.

The sky was so alive... and it made me feel that way, too.
So yeah, ummmmm...NO complaints.  Not ONE.  Life IS good.  (and SO sorry 'bout the pool shot overkill above there... I just am SO in awe of nature/beautiful sunsets/time outside with my loved ones right now!!!!!!)
Nowhere else I'd rather be!
I think it's crucial for us to FIND THINGS to re-center ourselves when life gets so crazy, as it always invariably does.  Sometimes I get TOO lost in the details, TOO un-present... and it truly affects my happiness.  It's when I S-L-O-W down, celebrate the little things, focus on the great loves of my life (my family!), laugh lots, and remember to just BREATHE, joy envelops me.  Those "off" feelings seem to disappear...

And when in doubt, just get a new 'do.  Chop that shit off, dye it up, add some feathers or tinsel, & make yourself feel pretty!

Change the world where’er you are."

Happy 4th of July!
