Be Present

It’s day 1 of the Mindful 21 challenge, a 21 day journey to become more mindful within your life – mindful of your actions, your environment, your body.


For the next 7 days, I challenge you to start or end your day with 5 minutes of meditation. Sitting with your thoughts, being still, being present is so important in a day and age where we have already thought 5 steps ahead instead of being mindful of where we are.

Sit in a quiet place, without any distraction. Let yourself just be in the moment. Before you dive into your day, allow yourself this time. Or perhaps you want to end your day with calm. Just be present in the moment. Play some music if that will help you let go. Thinking about that to do list or pile of laundry? Allow your mind to be still and tell yourself it will get done. Settle in. Be present.

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at
