The Windsor Mill’s New Look!

Since the Mill was burned down by a yet unknown arsonist, it’s been a shell.

However, a new look has been revealed, and all of Windsor is anticipating it’s re-opening.

It’s been paired down a bit and will not be as tall, but it will still retain much of its historic look and is sure to be a huge crowd-attractor when finished.

Can’t wait till construction begins!!

Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to all the men and women both past and present who have served our country and to those who have sacrificed their lives so that I can sit here today and type these words to you.

Let’s strive every day to not take our freedoms for granted, to remember those who have chosen a profession to keep us safe, and to thank veterans who gave a portion of their lives in service and who continue to do so.

THANK YOU, SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN!!!

Sweets on the Corner…

My kids’ are opening up their lemonade/baking stand again this summer.

On the corner of 9th & Walnut Streets here in Windsor. Grab a coffee at Dutch Bros and then a treat and lemonade from my kiddos! Hours vary.

Ever Just Feel the Need at the End of a Long Day to Sit and Write?

I’ve been running around, gone all day, and all I want to do is sit and write.

It’s my release.  My vegetation.  My relaxation time.  My “TV” since I don’t watch TV.

Anyone else relate?Image result for fire and coffee and writing and book

I type.  I breathe.  In.  Out.  I feel my muscles unclench.  My heart rate lower.  My life and brain come together.

I crave this alone time as much as I crave my morning CrossFit workouts.

It keeps me sane in the mist of insanity.

What do you do to relax and unwind?

Running in Colorado: Tyler3Miler…

Running in Colorado: Tyler3Miler

My girls and I ran the Tyler3Miler today around Windsor Lake at Boardwalk Park.  I did well.  I finished second female overall.  The band was out in full force, playing wonderful background music to cheer us on.  The race raised money for the band and scholarships for band members.  Always fun to run for a good cause, AND it was a gorgeous day for a race!

I Lost…

Hey all!

I just want to thank those who voted for me for the Windsor Town Board.

As you all know, I lost.  I appreciate your support, and I will continue to serve on the Board of Adjustments for this great town.

As for the future, I’m unsure.  I’m praying about what to do next as I truly believed God wanted me to serve as a Board member (it’s obvious I was mistaken now).

I’m also unsure what to do with this site.  I started it with the intent to keep you all informed of what was happening when I was on the Town Board.  I will do my best to continue in that capacity although the Town Board does have information privy only to them.

I am also looking for other ways to serve so send ideas my way!!

Again, thank you to all who voted for me.  I’m eternally grateful for your support.
