Winter 2007It seems that winter arrives earlier each year.  No sooner than the trees change color and drop their leaves, the cold, rain and yes, snow begin and wash away autumns deep hues.  I actually find beauty in the winter browns and grays, and find particular delight in driving around and seeing the “lay of the land” of our beautiful mid-Missouri rolling hills.

My most favorite part of the winter season is of course Christmas.  We can easily get caught up in lists and end of year to dos – but the part I’m most drawn to and strive to focus on is what I hold most dear: family.  I truly have to force myself to slow down and experience the “wonder of it all”...

My Favorite Time of Year


No doubt.  Fall is my absolutely favorite time of year.  The cooler, crisper air, the tree color changes, a blue October sky, the lingering shadows, richer foods and, of course, football (more college ball than pro for me).

Chamois will be host several events as our annual Chamois Day Festival will be September 17th with vendors, games, tours and food and reunions...
