Windsor Advisory Boards and Commissions Appreciation Dinner


The Town Board of Windsor utilizes many different Town Boards and Commissions to review projects, gather information, and make recommendations. These are all volunteer-based, which pulls from the community at large. This is an amazing opportunity for residents to lend their skills and talents to help their communities.

Once a year we all gather for a thank-you dinner. These are always fun to see one another, put names with faces, and recognize the time invested. Last night we gathered at the Embassy Suites in Loveland for a wonderful dinner and acknowledgments.

Our thank-you prize this year was a coffee tumbler with gift cards inside! I’m SO excited about this because 1) as you know I’m obsessed with coffee and 2) one of the gift cards was Starbucks!!! 3) the other gift card was to Mr. Yo’s Donuts so when I returned home and informed my kids of this, they were ecstatic!!

I would like to personally thank all of the volunteers on their respective boards. These are passionate people who donate their time and efforts to making Windsor an amazing community. It was so good to see everyone last night and learn a bit more about what everyone does.  Thank you for your service and see you at Starbucks!!

Coffee With a Friend…

Life is so busy.1b306235168f30b41fe94285674eb4851

Work, family, hobbies, pets, bills, etc.

You name it, we do it.

So those rare moments when we take a “time-out” from life and just meet a friend for coffee and talk about anything and everything about life are special.

Today I did just that.  Starbucks.  Misto.  Comfy chair.  Any topic up for grabs.

In today’s society, so much is disconnect.  Facebook.  Instagram.  Twitter.  Texting.  Face time.

You can never replace the connection made when you’re face to face with someone.  The bond that’s formed.  The sharing that takes place that otherwise wouldn’t.

Humans were meant for companionship.  We were not created to be alone.  We were created for fellowship with others.  For supporting one another when times are tough. For laughing together.  Crying together.  Winning together.  Losing together.  All the bad in the world that happens we need one another to persevere.

Today call a friend (don’t text).  Invite him or her for coffee.  Or a walk.  Lunch.  Or any other face-to-face get together.

Take that time.  Relish those moments.  You need them.  More than you know.
