Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

I bought a painting last week. The painter is a musician out of Des Moines. I’ve been listening to him for years - his music is really awesome (like a James Taylor, but more folky) and his paintings are really cool. This is who I want to be when I...

Thoughts from Holly

It’s almost back to school time for all! Summer really seemed to fly by and now many families are getting back to bed time schedules and gearing up for the homework to begin. I remember when my boys were in elementary and middle school and what a struggle it was...
