Media portrays what love is not

New Year’s wipeout and realizations

After feeling like I accomplished a lot during 2013, on New Year’s Day I learned a valuable lesson. I was with my extended family in Wolf Creek, Colo. on our bi-annual ski trip. First, let me point out that I’m no novice skier. I had my first lesson when I was three years old and have […]
