Tygh graduated from preschool tonight. He’s been in the same school since he was 4 months old so while graduating from preschool is not necessarily an accomplishment (like, does anyone actually fail preschool?), it is momentous in that this is the only place Tygh knows. Most of his friends have been with him since the infant room- they have grown up together. Watching him tonight, I was struck by what a sense of community this little boy has. Just like grownups, kids need a place of safety and belonging. They need a place to really be themselves and to be honest and fair with each other. Tenderfoot has been Tygh’s world for five years and by extension, part of mine. I know almost all of the parents of Tygh’s friends. I know they will (and have in the past!) help me in a pinch. I know the kids and when I see them in the community, I get to talk to them and engage with them. I know Tygh’s teachers and I feel comfortable opening up about his difficulties growing up in two homes. Tygh may not remain friends with all of classmates from preschool but he’s got a damn good start in life if he carries all of the lessons he learned about building a community forward. ❤️ #mtnliving#gunnisonisalifestyle#kids#wecanlearnfromthekids#thistownsavedmylife#thanksforthememories
Happy EMS Week to all the EMTS/Paramedics out there! Never forget where you started— this was back in 2011 when I was young, fresh, and naive wearing 20lb boots wanting to work all the OT the city had to offer! #emsweek#papasmurf#formerlife#thanksforthememories 🚑🚨

It is with elation that I am going back to the best job I've ever had starting June 7th ❤ But it is also bittersweet because I will be hanging up my green apron with Starbucks the night before. It has been an amazing journey; I have learned so much and worked with some of the most thoughtful, caring, and hilarious people at my store. The hardest part will be not seeing their sweet faces every day. This is not a goodbye, only a new beginning #thanksforthememories
I grew up as a Child of the Polka in Northeastern Ohio and stubbornly turned up my nose at sauerkraut. That changed when my parents made their own, fermented in heavy, pottery crocks in our cool basement. The end result was indescribably delicious and my parents celebrated that success by never making basement kraut again.
I tried to love grocery store kraut but whether it was natural colored or stained purple with beets; in a saggy sack or miniature glass barrel, the taste was lacking.
Until NOW, when I discovered this flashback-inducing Saverne Baverian at the Sprouts. It is worthy of a good pierogi, a tasty wurst and a beer! Open a beer, cook the remaining three ingredients in one skillet and TA DA, dinner (and memories) are served. #saverne @sauerkraut #dinner#memories#comfortfood#sprouts#lovemyparents#thanksforthememories#food
May always brings significant changes.
Lẽ ra phải có một lần celebrate ngày 22-23/5 một cách đàng hoàng, nhưng năm nào cũng có chuyện làm bận xong quên. Năm nay, đã mua hẳn 1 hộp 4 loại bánh khác nhau về nhấm nháp kèm trà Saffron cho sướng miệng, coi như một dạng ritual để tống cựu nghinh tân lẫn cưng nựng bản thân. 😝

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since his passing, but not a day goes by without some mention or thought of Nicky around the office. I’m just thankful I was able to get some extra special OFF track memories with him. NYE in the OWB was one of them. #thanksforthememories
