Lessons from the Mountain: A Tribute to Winter

As you may have noticed from the recent Facebook posts, I've moved to the mountains! I see more animals daily than people.

Happy 11-11-11 & 2-Year Anniversary!

It's hard to believe it's been 2 years since I started 6 Months to Live.  November 11, 2009, I was sitting on my mom's couch that evening carefully crafting the theme, the name, and the beginning widgets for this blog.  I knew almost nothing about blogging and even less about Wordpress.  I had no idea if anyone would even read…

I wrote each post for me and hoped that someone else might read it or even better, gleam something from my observations and carry it into their daily life. It has been an incredible journey, and I thank each and every one of you for joining me. If I…
