I just love Spring Break. My kids are off school and happily hanging out in PJs until noon. There is space for breathing, resting and enjoying each other it seems.
On the other end of the spectrum, the airport is teeming with excited travelers. They are beginning various journeys to see family, hang out on the beach, or maybe go skiing for one last time this season. The energy is palpable.

Don't try calling me at the office tomorrow, because I'll be in Denver, CO, for the next two days. Rick and I are going out there to have a little one-on-one time with Mike Boyd and Team. Mike is a big thinker. Some would say he's an idea guy. One thing is for sure… he can tell a great joke. I have to wear waterproof mascara because I usually laugh so hard I cry. Well any way, we took a trip like this...
