Friendship: Close Up

Posted on

I’m thankful to be married to my best friend in the whole wide world. At the same time, Jason doesn’t fill the girlfriend spot in my heart that some pretty amazing women do, and this post is about them. When we arrived in Denver almost 12 years ago, sure I was excited to live in […]

Posted on

It’s ironic, and not, that the prompt for Lisa Jo Baker’s “Five Minute Friday” is “write.” Just write, but be intentional about it… GO: Because today at lunch with a writer friend, who is writing a book with her husband, I asked, “How do you actually write a book on marriage?  Do you guys, like, […]

More On: Girlfriends!

NOT “Moron Girlfriends!”  Just to clarify… There are many titles I could have gone with concerning this post: “Modern Day Miracle!” “Man Uncovers Ancient Secret!” “Husband Found His Wife’s Sweet Spot…” “Mars Finally Moves to Venus to Form a Planetary Merger” “Jesus Can Come On Back Now…All the Problems in the World are Solved.” Or, […]

Girlfriends are MANDATORY!

Posted on

I just got back from Austin, Texas, where I took part in a girls weekend.  Two friends from college, one from the East Coast, another from the West, dreamed it up and decided to invite their friends from around the country to meet in the middle.  Those friends invited friends, and so on, and so […]
