Spring is here, officially! Whether or not the Park City weather plays along is a different story, but the glorious days of bare feet in the grass, wildflowers, and al fresco everything are definitely within sight. I can’t remember the last time I had a more emotionally difficult winter, so I welcome the season change even more this year, and it feels easier to tap into my optimistic side these days. Don’t misunderstand- I have hard stuff on my plate that doesn’t translate to blog-land very well. My intention with this site and these posts isn’t to pretend that everything is perfect! But there are always little moments in every day that make me grateful for it all. Once you start looking for them, you see that they are everywhere. Here are some recent smiles!
