Season of Change

Something about the first few warm, sunny days heralding the arrival of Spring lends a bit more gratefulness than what I consider my respectable baseline. As far as I can remember, this has happened every year.

And it’s been a relief to find this Spring is turning out to be no exception. It has been a year of so many changes- location, career, relationship- and a winter that carried its share of bitter cold. But new growth seems to be sprouting all around me, and somehow it seems to be taking me with it.

With yet another uncharacteristically early but beautiful weekend in Colorado, I’ve spent most of my time outdoors. I realize I’m fortunate to live surrounded by amazing landscapes. And I wake each day entering a kitchen and a new career that I genuinely love in a way that I didn’t think possible.

New opportunities are starting to bring encouragement that I may be leaning toward the preferable side of that fine line between brave and foolish. I’ll be working at Boulder’s Farmers Market this season with incredible outlets to educate people about sustainable living and meet many others who know so much more than I do.Β And I’m thrilled to be spending time in the kitchen this summer with some of the most talented chefs and sommeliers in the country.

So I can do nothing but return to grateful, and hope that a grateful season of change will be yours as well.

  1. Great to hear that opportunities are beginning to knock on your door! The scenery really does look incredible, I’ll admit I’m not a hiker, but I can happily stroll for hours, six if its a good day and I have comfy shoes (I once did 35,000 steps) on a pedometer, but that was a few years ago, lol!

    The Farmers markets sound like a great opportunity amongst all the other things too πŸ™‚

  3. Life seems good. Congratulations. I love the pictures. The rock in the left of the last one looks like an alligator head. There is even a front claw if you look for it.

    • It truly is, Ben. Thank you. Hope life is treating you well too! That’s awesome- you’re right about the rock! I hadn’t noticed it until you pointed it out; now that’s all I can see. Even has green lichens on its head… πŸ™‚
