Saluting Those Who Served Us

Editor’s Note: This incredibly patriotic local treasure came as a complete to surprise to me (makes me appreciate the opportunities that arise from weak bladders and the need for constant pit stops.)

This post was written a few years ago in honor of Memorial Day, when we discovered this cemetery south of Big Timber, Montana. It was a very . . . → Read More: Saluting Those Who Served Us

Creating A New Year’s Prediction Bottle

Editor’s Note: Oh, how I love champagne. And oh, how I love any excuse to drink more of it!

With a brand new year lurking very near on the horizon, I wanted to share a tradition with you. And one that we create every New Year’s Eve – and one so simple, I invite you to . . . → Read More: Creating A New Year’s Prediction Bottle

This IS my Holiday Greeting Card!

Editor’s Note: Two years ago I made this decision, and was concerned – wondering – would regret it?

Guess what?

There is not a single regret to be found.

Only freedom – sweet freedom – and liberation from the pressure to get the stinking Christmas card photo taken, ordered, then cards written, addressed, stamped and mailed. 

Whew. . . . → Read More: This IS my Holiday Greeting Card!

Bozeman Under the Big Sky Stroll

For the 32nd annual Bozeman Christmas Stroll, I had Montana State Bobcat football on my mind…the stroll was a means to an end. Not to mention it was balmy – like 50 degrees. Crazy-warm for December in southwest Montana.

Since I was pre-occupied to get in front of a television screen as quickly as possible, my photos . . . → Read More: Bozeman Under the Big Sky Stroll

Who Doesn’t LOVE a Tea Party?

{Editor’s Note: There are so many fabulous annual events in Bozeman, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But I can authentically say, the Christmas Tea, hosted by the lovely folks from Friends of the Story Mansion ranks in the Top Ten. Maybe it reminds me of tea parties from years gone by, or the fact I . . . → Read More: Who Doesn’t LOVE a Tea Party?

How to Create A Thankful Tree

First off, I will admit, this idea is not solely my own (I saw it on Better Homes and Gardens) but when I saw it, I thought, “I am creating that for my holiday table.” So I did. A tree to adorn your Thanksgiving day table where each of the attendees writes what they are most . . . → Read More: How to Create A Thankful Tree

In Honor of Our Veterans

On May 13, 1938, the 11th of November in each year was deemed a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.”

Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War . . . → Read More: In Honor of Our Veterans

“Cents”ational Celebrating

{Editor’s Note: This is a rerun, but I felt it was worthy as we are within the sweet spot of the upcoming holiday season. If any of you have ideas on how to creatively – and freely – enhance the holidays – I’d love to hear them. And so would my gentle readers. No matter how . . . → Read More: “Cents”ational Celebrating

It’s Almost That Time Again…

{Editor’s Note: I’m so excited to announce we will be hosting my parents in Montana for Thanksgiving this year – which means, it’s time to start prepping for the big day. Yep, I’ve already begun the turkey-task of taking an inventory of what I have, what I need, and what might be fun to add – . . . → Read More: It’s Almost That Time Again…

What Summer Love Looks Like

As the heat index nears mercurial proportions, we sweat, and realize we are in love.

We are in love with the sun, and toes nestled in the grass, and heat on our faces. We are in love with summer and all that goes along with it.

Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be invited to a quaint event that if nothing . . . → Read More: What Summer Love Looks Like
