The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed! “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ~Maria Robertson
As life long residents of California, our family relocates with my husband's job. We now find ourselves living the good life in beautiful Colorado with our two children, two chihuahuas, and a feline friend!
I am a 'forty something' mom of two, former 3rd grade teacher, and lover of all things apples and chocolate!
Since childhood, I have always felt keenly aware of how short life is, and how we need to savor every day fully. The past few years have made me appreciate this fact all the more. Having been diagnosed with melanoma a few years ago, (I am currently skin cancer free!) experiencing my dad's unexpected passing, and my mom's recent passing after a year long battle with brain cancer, I am even more appreciative of each day we are given.
Live well today, and savor every moment! (That includes eating the chocolate!) Ü
The freshly fallen snow was just like powder. Ashlyn and I were out at 8:30 a.m. and we just sunk right in! Our home thermometer says it is 19 degrees, but it sure doesn't feel that cold, especially with the sun shining.
