The Day Pink Power Ranger Skied 50 Miles

The Day Pink Power Ranger Skied 50 Miles

I recently returned from West Yellowstone, Montana, where some girlfriends and I dressed up in super girl costumes and skied. For a very long time.
The occasion? The Equinox Ski Challenge. This annual event, which is named for the time the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator, making night and day of approximately equal length all over the earth, is awesome.
It’s basically a supported ski-a-thon on some of West Yellowstone’s world-famous [...]

Wining & Dining on Napa Valley Wine Train

Wining & Dining on Napa Valley Wine Train

It was our first time to Napa Valley and California’s wine country. After a bunch of hiking and exploring the Marin Headlands to the south, we were looking forward to some spectacular wining and dining. Napa Valley seemed like just the place.
We like riding on trains and don’t get the opportunity to do so very [...]

Elk, Crashing Surf, Elephant Seals and a Lighthouse Make for Epic Day

On my most recent trip to the San Francisco, CA, region, I spent a day exploring the Point Reyes National Seashore region, located about an hour-and-a-half northwest of San Francisco.
The highlights were hiking to Tomales Point, which marks the end of land on the Pt. Reyes Peninsula,  seeing elephant seals at Drakes Beach, and exploring [...]

Living and Working on the Frontier, Part 2

In 1994, we founded a business in Wyoming called Yellowstone Journal Corporation. For 15 years we innovated and expanded. It was hard work. It was never easy. Yet it was extremely fulfilling — similar to climbing a mountain. It’s almost all work, but the rewards at the top are worth it. We sold the business [...]

I have been traveling to the San Francisco, CA, region every month for the last five months for life coach training in San Rafael. My final course was last week. And, thanks to my parents, who so graciously offered to watch our three sons, my husband, Jerry was able to fly out and meet me [...]

Living and Working on the Frontier

I started and operated a business on the frontier of Wyoming for 15 years. It was hard work – similar to exploring the frontier. It was a journey of discovery and promise that at times was harsh and full of hazards. It was epic.

Creating Fun in Your Life – Just Do It

Creating Fun in Your Life – Just Do It

Since selling our business in September 2008, some people think I’m retired, or semi-retired. While I’ve certainly gained more personal time and freedom, I’m not retired and don’t plan on retiring anytime soon — if ever.
In fact, in addition to doing my best to be a good mother to our three sons and a good [...]
