My website will be quiet for the next couple of weeks while I take some time off to stand in the painting above with my family and remember my Mom, who died from cancer almost a year ago. Before she died she told us to go here together, so we are. On the anniversary of her death, April 11th, I will be somewhere near this beautiful place letting her ashes blow into the wind.

I will still be posting to Instagram and Twitter though, so please check in with me there! On April 29th, I'll be back here with stories about my Mom and our trip.

Have a beautiful April.
