Hi all,

I have not been very punctual about working on my blog.
Too many other crazy things going on.

But I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.
I have a lot of cool events coming up

new year, new goals


Wow, it's been a crazy winter.
First of all, everyone in my family has been sick.
I got sick the day after Christmas, and finally went to the doctor. 

Diagnosis, brochitis. It has now been 6 weeks and I still
have some residual cough in the morning.
But I feel WAY better.

So now I am back to work
and loving it so much.

This is one of my favorite scenes from Taos.
It's near the Taos Pueblo and has
a beautiful view of Taos mountains with aspens
in the foreground.

I'm going to work on my website tonight,
so if want to mosey on over, CLICK HERE.
