Importance of Families

Importance of Families A few weeks ago, my whole family got together for the day so we took this picture.  With seven of us living all across the country, that’s not an easy thing to do.  What complicates things even more is active busy families and jobs.  I feel grateful that we at least had this day together.  If there’s anything I’ve learned from having a large family, it’s that we have some similarities, but we’re all different.  I remember my previous employer said to me once that we are given…

Streamlining

Photo by Tiffany Hansen Vossler Streamlining Every few months, I like to evaluate all the demands on my time and decide if they’re still worth doing or not.  I like to call it streamlining my life.  Do you ever do that?  Some of the demands are necessary and some of them aren’t.  For the past few years I’ve tried lots of different things professionally that have been fun and rewarding, but at the same time, they’ve taken up a lot of time.  There’s a constant push and pull of wanting…

Summer’s Theme

Summer’s Theme Summers last such a short period of time, don’t they?  I was just thinking the other day that most of them generally revolve around something–a vacation, a trip, or a big move.  Maybe it’s because of their short length, but I remember vividly some big event or activity that takes place each Summer.  It becomes sort of a theme for the season.  This year, our family’s Summer theme seems to be water and mountains.
