Once Upon A Time, in another life, Kristin graduated from the University of Michigan with a plan to teach high school math. But then, life happened when she wasn’t looking…. She married an Army guy and 23 years, 3 kids, a few dogs, 7 homes, and 2 continents later she’s now a single mom living here in Colorado Springs. Along the way she volunteered for the Army, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and several schools; managed volunteer organizations, coached judo, trained to be a whitewater rafting guide, biked down Pike’s Peak and even managed to teach some high schoolers a little math before forging new trails writing, teaching and financial planning. She never knows what’s coming around the bend, but she’s learned to handle whatever life (and the Army!), throws at her with a smile and a laugh. She’s pretty sure you can get through anything with those, even if you have to fake it occasionally!!

  1. Hello, in addition to the ones listed here, we’ve discovered a Pumpkin Patch in Falcon off of US-24 and Meridian Road today. I could not find a name at the entrance, and unfortunately forgot to ask the staff, but it was very fun for my kids. They had a pedal go kart track, a great hay maze, slide, corn box, goats and pumpkins of course. I cannot find any information about it on the internet, but I think it is worth a trip if you’re nearby.
