Fresh Air is a Fundamental Right

Fresh Air is a Fundamental Right

WARNING: RANT AHEAD~ When I step outside, the LAST thing I want to smell is the smoke coming out of somebody’s cigarette. Everywhere you look, buildings have signs asking patrons to kindly PLEASE refrain from smoking within a 15 ft radius of the front door… there is very sound and logical reasoning behind this! By refusing to adhere to these standards and smoking right next to the front door, you are essentially saying, “FUCK YOU” to anybody who doesn’t want…

Moving In

Moving In

Earlier this month, Josh and I moved into our new apartment in Greeley, CO. We actively made the decision to travel, explore and experience as many places as we can while we try to start a family. Greeley is the first of many since we have already lived in Colorado Springs, Aurora, Littleton and Wellington, among some other places outside of Colorado. After Greeley, we are definitely trying out some new states and maybe some new countries. 🙂 The apartment…

We had looked into what the weather was supposed to be like and it was supposed to be perfect, with highs in the 50s and…

The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The…
