We Are The Rememberers

I was in a meeting the other day at the Family History Library, which has the largest shared family tree database in the world, when someone giving a presentation surprised the person with me by playing an audio file for her that they’d located in the database.  Watching the immediate reaction of her hands shooting

A Day Best Described With Actual Pictures And Videos

Today was an absolutely amazing Fourth of July! From having my entire family with me all day, to having our friends John Wayne Walding (a true American Hero you can read about at www.johnwaynewalding.com) and his wife Amy Walding and their four kids with us, to meeting George Washington, to going to Stadium of Fire

My Visit To The White House For The Empowerment Of Women Symposium

Today I was honored to be invited to The White House in Washington DC to be a part of the Empowering Women Symposium where issues such as the economy, healthcare, and national security were discussed.  A group of 30 women leaders from across the country were invited to meet 90 minutes before the Symposium started

No one has the perfect life and thank heaven for those who are willing to admit that

It all looks so perfect….people’s social media posts with photos of their fabulous trips and their perfectly gorgeous family picture photos where every child is sitting up straight and smiling into the camera. There are photos of people’s beautiful new sports car they just bought, and photos of their perfectly decorated dinner table for the

What You Forget You Can Never Retell

“Preserve your memories, keep them well, what you forget you can never retell.” – Louisa May Alcot Tonight my sweet Mother came over to my home and we sat and scanned in several stacks of her Father’s (my Grandfather’s) papers he had written back while he was alive. As I sat scanning the different documents

Rediscover the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in

As we age we grow wiser from life experience, which is a good thing. But sometimes as we grow older we also become a little bit jaded…almost too realistic…we often lose that sense of wonder and excitement we had as a child, and that is a not such a good thing… Now that I am

Fall in love all over again

This afternoon I went with my son and his fiancé for them to have their bridal photos taken and he got to see her for the first time in her wedding dress. It was such an amazing moment as a mom to be there and see him turn around and see the girl he loves

Take a trip down memory lane

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” One of my goals for this year was to get all my photos that were taken “pre-digital” on old-school printed photos, and scan them in so I could have digital copies of all of them.

Family Fun Ideas

It’s hard these days to come up with fun ideas of things you can do together with your family that are inexpensive, fun, and get everyone involved at every age in the family.  A few years ago I started to make a list of ideas for things to do with family by gathering ideas from

Swimming with Sharks

Yesterday I was invited by a good friend to come to the set of the TV Show Shark Tank. Shark Tank happens to be one of my favorite shows on television today because I absolutely love it from an educational standpoint on all the lessons it can teach entrepreneurs.  Each week as I watch the

Finding Out Who You Are By Learning Where You Came From

Figuring out who your ancestors are is one of the coolest things in the world.  I was lucky to have Grandparents who were big into doing genealogy research when they were still alive and they provided me life history books for their own lives as well as providing me life histories written by my great-grandparents

Another Great Sundance Day Focused on the Success the comes from Failure

Today was another great day at the Sundance Film Festival.  It is really fun to have so many people come together from all around the world to gather in Park City to celebrate storytelling.  Another great part of Sundance Film Festival is the business gatherings that take place where business leaders can gather together and

Happy Anniversary and Happy New Year!

Six years ago December 31st I married the man of my dreams in the most beautiful wedding imaginable.  My husband wanted us to get married on New Year’s because he said that would ensure that he never forgot our wedding anniversary – smart man 😉  … On that day we were surrounded by family and

Oh, My Hotness!

It is officially TOO HOT OUTSIDE!  I am usually a fan of the warm weather, but my goodness it is hot!  I walk out of my house and I am instantly covered in sweat, and I don’t ever sweat!  In fact, it is so hot that my sweat is now sweating!  It is hot as

Photo Montage of Grand Opening Event

 Rather than writing a blog tonight I thought I would share a few of the fun photos taken of our Grand Opening Event.  First I will show photos of a few of our friends who attended and then I will post some of the other photos of the inside of our offices as not all
