I had such a wonderful year on the bike. I met a lot of awesome people, went on some amazing rides and pushed myself to break a few personal records.Read More
I've been thinking a lot about my grandmother lately. Maybe it's because Dawn and I are grandparents to the cutest little three-year-old you ever did see. I want to be the grandparent to Avery (and any future grandkids) that Mimi was to me.Read More
I don't really follow the goings-on of Oprah Winfrey but of course, I am aware of who she is. I have also heard that she has a list of "favorite things" every year. I looked at her list. None of her items appealed to me. So I decided to write about some of my own favorite things of 2015.Read More
