Young Love

A Love Story Begins . . .

It was a snowy November evening many years ago, in Layton Utah. I was happy to be attending a young singles activity at my church that night.  Recently I’d broken up with my boyfriend Mike, whom I’d dated for several years.  His enlistment in the air force was up and he had moved back to Ohio.  I missed him and I was looking forward to an evening out in hopes it would distract me from the loneliness I was feeling….

Bird’s Nest – We found this charming bird’s nest in the grass at the trunk of a small tree in my daughter’s front yard. It was in the fall and had obviously fallen from the tree, hopefully it’s former tenants had moved on.  It’s very interesting to be able to hold it in…

Football – For the Clueless!

Super Bowl Sunday is just a few days away! Families and friends will be gathering together, putting out grand and delicious spreads of food and boisterously cheering their favorite teams toward a victory. But alas, I’m afraid that there will be many party goers that, as one of my sisters recently said, will only be there for the food. Now, I’m not an avid football fan, but I did go through a “daddy’s girl” phase as a young teenager. I…
