    “The biggest insight that we have had during this time is how much we have taken for granted our wonderful lifestyle and the freedom to kayak, mountain bike, ski, travel, and spend time with friends and family. We miss our amazing community and are looking forward to going out to restaurants, family gatherings, doing all the outdoor activities and being able to carpool with friends as we head to the river. We have a very good life and are looking forward to savoring every minute of it when Idaho life goes back to normal. In the meantime, we share our gratitude for all of the healthcare workers, delivery personnel, grocery workers, and stay-at-home-persons doing their part to keep our community as safe and healthy as possible during these crazy times. “


    Bright Spot: a good thing that occurs during a bad or difficult time.

    The coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the globe is an extraordinarily strange and challenging time.  As we are shuttered in our homes, collectively concerned about our health, our finances and our neighbors, we are finding there are bright spots in this fundamental shift in how we relate to others and the world.
