When Your Home Starts Becoming Just a House

It’s the memories that matter. Not the stuff. Painting over the growth chart on the wall was a huge step for me, and I did that myself as a way to help let go of this current season of life. My home is becoming just a house.

Hiking with Holly

Day 1: Agnew Meadows to Thousand Island Lake via the River Trail     

Starting out at Agnew Meadows or going to Thousand Island Lake was no new hike for us, but taking the River trail was something new. Two years ago when we hiked from Mammoth to Yosemite, we took the PCT/ High Trail out of Agnew Meadows over to Thousand Island Lake.  But this time, I was… Continue reading Day 1: Agnew Meadows to Thousand Island Lake via the River Trail

Pierce, ID…It Was Meant to Be

Okay, so a little backstory is needed.  Back in 2007 I met a wonderful woman (Amy) through the ministry that I was involved with.  We continued to do ministry on and off together until she recently relocated to Japan for her husbands’ job.  We have been able to stay in touch through Facebook and Instagram. … Continue reading Pierce, ID…It Was Meant to Be

Arnold and sheep…Ketchum/Sun Valley, Idaho

On the Road Again….Idaho Bound

As I sit here writing, we are in a horse pasture of a farm just outside Bellevue, ID.  I hear a rooster crowing and the beautiful sound that aspen leaves make as the wind blows through them.   Our RV is parked next to a little grove of them.  What a lovely little valley this is. … Continue reading On the Road Again….Idaho Bound
