Come along with us, as we educate ourselves and share alternative views on life, love, energy, food and travel.

While in beautiful Colorado, we were lucky enough to make it to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, home of the highest sand dunes in the country. We stayed in a historic hotel in Monte Vista, woke up early, rented sandboards from Kristi Mountain Sports in Alamosa and...read more
Maybe it’s because we’re creatives or because we run our own business, but it feels like we’re always being asked if we went to college to learn our skills or if we were self-taught. The thing is, one of us went to one of the top art schools in...read more

One of our Dads is a bit of a number cruncher and tends to think outside the box. He mentioned something to us that we couldn’t dismiss. He said 1 does not equal 1. He explained that when using fractions, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1 and that made sense to us. Then he...read more
