Perfect Moment Monday: Sunrise

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.


Although it’s downright painful to get up freakishly early on a Sunday morning (4 am if you do it right), the payoff on Easter Sunday in my neck of the woods is this:

Then you get to go home and nap. And eat with family. And count your blessings, no matter your religious persuasion.


To participate in Perfect Moment Monday:

  1. Between Sunday night and Tuesday night, write up your own Perfect Moment in a blog post, on Twitter, on Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.
  2. Grab the URL of your Perfect Moment.
  3. Use MckLinky below to enter your blog’s name and the URL of your Perfect Moment
  4. Visit the Perfect Moments of others (from the links below), and let the writers know you were there.

Once you make a Perfect Moment post , you may place this button on your blog.

Show & Tell: Hallooo, Red Roques!

Whenever we have out of town guests, we take them to nearby Red Rocks amphitheater, climb down to the stage and pretend we are British rock stars.

We took visitors there recently and I took a couple of non-amphitheater photos of these breathtakingly beautiful geologic formations:

And for some context for the title of this post, here ya go:

See the cool stuff my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.

Things to do in Denver when you’re a mom

Because of my desire to take over the ENTIRE INTERNET (watch out, Aunt Becky), and because who needs those 5 hours of sleep a night anyway, I have joined Trekaroo in order to tell people about spending time in my wonderful city, Denver, Colorado.


Here are recommendations from Trekaroo Families and local Colorado bloggers who jumped aboard the Trekaroo KidsMobile for its current stop in Denver.

The next stop for the KidsMobile is Charlotte, North Carolina. Yoohoo, JJ, Kristin and NC Bloggers — you have anything to say about Charlotte?

Trekaroo has also stopped in CA | CO | DC | FL | HI | IL | MA | NY | PA | TX | VA | WA. So if you’re slacking by sleeping at night and want to add your 2 cents about your hometown exploits with your children, head over to Trekaroo. Or if you’re bringing your kids to one of these places, get the scoop from other parents.

Happy weekend! Hope you have a perfect moment and come back here Monday to tell about it.
