Hey my fellow Coloradians!
To this day there is an International Women's Day to remember Women's Suffrage and celebrate women around the world!
I put some string on the Photographer canvas so I could hang little cards for each Photographer!
I used permanent markers and drew on outlines of the Colorado Springs skyline and Pikes Peak, just some pictures I found on google.
I wasn't able to finish this one in time, but I'll have it for the next one.

To my mama, Nancy!
I guess I'll start it off! My mama moment-
One day, when I was about 3 or 4, I ripped the flowery wall paper right off the walls! I thought the sound it made was fun! But after a while, I realized I had ripped so much my mom would totally notice!!! So I began coloring in the white spots that had no wall paper with crayons!
Later that night, my mom walked in - and I remember holding my breath waiting to see if she would notice - my mom walked in, and gasped!
The jig was up!!! Abandon bed, abandon bed! Hit the floor!!!!!
I love you mama :]
Thank-you for not killing me.
I was cooking dinner one night, all of a sudden I hear my daughter, Maci, screaming so I go running towards her and THAT sound! I found her in the bathroom soaking wet, her dolly- head first in the toilet...
I asked her "what are you doing?!"
...and she said “Baby bath...”.
Maci had slipped and fell in the toilet while giving her Poppy doll a bath in the toilet.
How do you not keep from laughing? How do you keep a straight face while punishing them?! "
Our first event of the year was a smash!!! If I wouldn't be so embarrassed, I'd make a gif of me doing my 'touch down' dance! How has YOUR January gone so far? Have any predictions? Think it'll be a good year?! I feel the air brush against my face while walking the dogs at Bear Creek Park and it feels like hope to me! I can't wait to taste new foods, go places I have never been and meet new people along the way!
Our spotlighted Charity for the month was

In Terri's own words, a little bit about her business
and what she graciously did for the Victory Service Dogs!
" Keep your Filthy Laws
~by Miss Kara Belle~
Inspirational to say the least. Today, I had the ability to be apart of making history as hundreds of people joined together in a movement for change. The Me-Too rally in Colorado Springs on January 21st, 2018 is a day to be remembered as hundreds of people gathered in an act to protest many injustices.
I was amazed that even though it was below freezing and windy, so many wonderful people got together to stand up for what they believed in. Many people created signs to represent their view on how they hoped this protest might change our county for the better. Creativity with statements such as “Keep your filthy laws off my silky drawers,” were seen throughout his march. As a women’s protest there were signs to show how women have been sexualized and disrespected for their gender, an injustice that has gone on for too long.
