My name is Kelly. I live in the mountains with my husband and sometimes the kids ( I will not use the term “empty nest” just yet) . I love the outdoors. I love the color orange. I love to run, hike , snowboard, and am trying to learn to surf. I did a lot of mountain biking back in the day (80’s) and was a climber for 20+ years. Originally from Massachusetts, I have lived in Washington state since 1991. I love literature, loud music and old cars, as well as loud cars, music and old literature. I started blogging to get things down, share my thoughts and tell about our sometimes nutty mountain life. Want to know more? Ask me a question, share a story or a thought. I’d love to hear from you!
