The last sunset of 2017.
Wow. It’s been quite a year!
From good to bad and everything in between:
– travels (Australia, New Zealand, Kauai, San Diego, Santa Barbara, LA, and even Nebraska to experience the solar eclipse)…
…to publishing (book deal for Alan, 1st published book for Ryan, and a magazine feature for me)…
…to every day up-and-down craziness due to being a mother of teenagers and a wife…
…to finding our dream home, and making our current home picture perfect so it can become someone else’s dream home (I’ve been painting baseboards and doors all day!)….
…to feeling honored for winning several awards from Dress for Success Phoenix…
…to worrying about our country and our global neighbors…
…to seeing those I know grow their businesses, families, or influence and work towards their dreams…
…and many more!
Thank you for all the good (and the growth) 2017! And thank you for the most beautiful sunset for the last day of 2017!
What has been your favorite memory of this year?

Looking forward to kicking up our heels on New Years!
Hubby and I are totally going to bed at 9pm like we do every year. Sometimes we can even stay awake until 10pm!
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and joyous 2018! xoxo
From our family to yours – Merry Christmas!!
I wasn’t sure it was possible.
But we did it.
🏡 We found our dream home /retreat center /legacy home to give to our children and their children.
We are in escrow and start inspection next week.
Still pinching ourselves every day!
💌 Now the bittersweet part – to sell our beautiful home and bless it for a new family to create memories, laughter and happiness in.
👶🏻 Our son was born here.
🌱 We’ve started businesses here.
📙 Alan wrote a NY Times bestseller here.
A lovesick teen boy climbed the roof to be with our teen daughter here. 😳
Lots of memories. Lots of laughter. Lots of tears. Lots of love ❤️
And yet, I am so excited about the possibilities of the new home and the new memories to be made there.
🙏 Let’s pray that it all goes well from here moving forward. But I’d like to say thank you so much for those of you who sent your prayers and blessings to the sellers for creating such a magical place….and for sharing it with us. I can’t wait to show it to you!
If you live in Arizona, you want to work with them because they have made everyhing so easy and free from stress!
Warmest thanks again! ❤️
