Taking into consideration what is in our control and what is not, I think this is the best time of life, as is living up here in the mountains, in Lake City, Colorado. I always find it interesting from people who are considering moving up here full time, wondering what the heck do we do in the winter!
The ‘Let’s be neighbors’ sign in front of Get Some Groceries, in our little village, gives me hope. It is acknowledged worldwide that now is absolutely an extremely hard time for our nation.
The hopefulness in the banner simply comes from seeing each other as human beings.

For me, this has been the most life altering experience ever. There’s nothing to compare to growing a person inside of your body, giving birth and being responsible for molding another person’s life, especially with everything happening for the first time.
Celebrating New Year’s Eve
At Climb in Lake City, CO
Instead of the red sauce being over powering, this light red sauce has a gentle blending of complimentary flavors. The aroma was mouthwatering and the colors – a celebration!
This isn’t just going out to eat, Climb is a dining experience ~!

In our Northern Hemisphere winter solstice is usually the 21 or 22 of December. It is also known as the “shortest day” of the year.

Our Rick Steves group. We traveled together to Venice, Florence, and Rome in late October 2019. What I generally enjoy about our group dinners together, is the combination of getting to know the different people we are traveling with, while being in the midst of a new food experience.
My husband and I were in Venice, Italy this October, just 24 days before the worst flooding in 50 years. I really connect with Venice. Venice is a delicate island ecosystem and it reminds me of home. My husband and I live at almost 9,000 feet above sea level, in the tiny mountain village ecosystem of Lake City, CO.
Celebrating Thanksgiving and Being Grateful
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving! I love that there’s a holiday centered on being grateful; with no pressure to send cards, buy presents or even decorate. Yesterday was Thanksgiving. It’s interesting to me to think about people all over our country doing the same thing – sitting down to a feast of turkey, cranberries, potatoes and pies – with friends and family and being grateful.
