Speaking to me

"You’re seeing your brother for who he was: a person who surrendered the best parts of himself to addiction, who pushed away and hurt those closest to him." ~Dear Sugars Podcast

"No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may.
 We ourselves must walk the path." ~Buddha

So then, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
What made me happy:  Time with friends and family. Skiing, travel, mountain biking, yoga, hiking and long walks with Franny. Time outside. Reading. Trips to Moab, New York, Maine, Spain and Santa Fe. Being Mom to Finn.
What I learned:  Life will test you and it will reward you. It will ebb and flow. It will overwhelm you at times. Just keep breathing. Keep putting one foot in front of the other.  Pick some fruit, make some jam.  Go skiing. Go to a movie. Read a book or an article.  Change your perspective. Set and then achieve that goal. Chop wood, carry water. Be a better, stronger, heathier, more educated you. Be compassionate and loving. Take time to pet your dog daily. Take time for love. Life will ask you who you are and you will answer in the way you choose to live your life. Aim to be a better friend, sibling, mother, wife, daughter, business owner, employee, person. Surround yourself with good vibes and positive people. Forgive your mistakes, but learn from them. Trust your instincts. Be kind to yourself and others. Do the things you enjoy doing and do them often. Keep moving forward, trying new things, challenging yourself and striving towards goals, but appreciate what you have, because after-all, what you have is what you have worked for.

"If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become a gardener. If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation. If you want peace, exude calmness. if you want to fill your world with artist, begin to paint. If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself."
~Victoria Ericson

Yoga is my new passion, helping me attain new goals every day.  Helping me to be more social and feel more connected to this town. If you want more Yogis in your life, start doing yoga.

Manifesto of a Wine Shop Owner

When I opened Ridge Street Wine in goal was to bring great, small production wines to our our be the place you came to daily for your bottle of wine...much like going to the local baker for your daily bread...the local coffee shop for your cup o’ joe. Today, we are choc-full of artisan cheeses, small batch chocolates, unique & compelling wines from family run wineries…and wonderful, bountiful gift baskets. We still love sending you home with our favorite things! And we love being connected to you, our friends, our customers…and hearing about your day what kind of wine, cheese or chocolate you might be looking for. Brick & Mortar. Education, quality products, service...but equally important to us is seeing your faces and hearing your stories...and in some way being  connected with you and our Breckenridge community. This is what it is all about for us and why we continue to do what we do. Like many small businesses in this town we strive to offer something distinctive with a personal touch. We are always on the hunt for something great to share with you and we truly appreciate your continued support.

Autumn Glory


The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky,
~WB Yeats
