Spring has arrived in the Rocky Mountains! All across the Front Range, tulips & daffodils are breaking ground, bluebirds & hummingbirds are stirring, and the rivers are flowing. As we reflect on the past year, we remember all the hardships we’ve overcome, as individuals, and as a community. We’ve endured a painful pandemic, destructive and record-breaking wildfires, and division across the political spectrum. But with Spring comes a rebirth from the ashes of these challenges.

Our family has been incredibly lucky this past year, and for that, our hearts are full of gratitude. It’s been tough on so many families, people & animals, economies & businesses. But we are hopeful that the Spring of 2021 promises a renewal of energy and healing. After all, metal out of the forge is a stronger steel. In working through all the loss, of our loved ones, of our land and homes, of our trust in each other, we become something entirely different. More understanding. More resilient. More motivated. We learn to value the most beautiful and basic elements of life, and it transforms our relationship with the world and the people who create it.
From our family to yours, we are with you. Stay strong, and stay focused. May we treat each other with excessive kindness as we all lick our wounds. Happy Easter, Happy Spring, and Happy Renewal to you all!
