We fled.

We woke up early, checked the weather reports, turned on the news and hastily packed the car, cramming in essentials: wedding photos, clothes, toddler toys, infant car seat in case the baby in my belly decided to come early.

And we left our home behind, a Category 4 hurricane barreling toward our beloved town.

BLESSINGS IN BLOOM: Peppers

Hot, mild, pickled, Pueblo, Hatch, bell, Anaheim, jalapeno, home grown. Peppers are loved by almost everyone. And if you don’t like to eat them, they can be beautifully displayed when strung and hung as ristras. Fall is the time to celebrate the pepper. We are very blessed to live in a state that farms some of the best peppers on the planet. Pueblo Chili #1! Boooo-Yah!

Later, I thought it would be the fall when children returned to school. Recently, that new marker was Christmas, with a vaccine approved for use.

Today, our nation mourns the loss of a trailblazer, not only in the field of law, but in the history of our country.”

So begins President Donald Trump’s proclamation on the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ordering the American flag to be flown at half-staff around the world in her honor.

November 3 is drawing near for arguably one of the most vitriolic presidential races in the United States’ history, but the presidency is not the only ballot measure of utmost concern for Coloradans. This year, the people of Colorado have the opportunity to ban late-term abortion after 22-weeks’ fetal gestation, promoting the value of life for our culture and affirming the countless preborn children whose lives came to a brutal end before their first breath.
