A Different Way of Celebrating!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I wanted to indulge myself and write from more of a personal perspective….I love The Barn, but today I am celebrating my children. This year was my turn to have my children (Alex and Connor) on Christmas Eve.  They are spending today with their Father.  I sincerely hope they are…

Scary Stuff at The Barn!

I love having dinner with my Son…he is the unwitting inspiration for many of my blogs.  Usually we talk about cars (he wants a new one, of course) or his favorite music, or his friends.  Last night we talked some “Barnie Talk”. We drove into Castle Rock, parked at The Barn and walked to a…

We have our annual small town community holiday celebration tomorrow…it is called Starlighting.  Castle Rock has been lighting a big star on top of its namesake for over 70 years.  This is one example of why I love living in a small town. I have personally attended this celebration (on and off) since 1996 when…

Connor

My Son is probably going to hate this post but I can’t help myself! I am the proud Mother to two beautiful young men.  My older boy is almost 22 (OMG!) and my younger boy is 18.  While I am enormously proud of both of my children, this post will be focusing on the contributions…
