Carbondale, CO is where we live. It is a small community made up of ranchers, old (and young) hippies, artist and musicians all seeking and living the healthy life style. It is one of those places where everyone knows each other - or have friends in common. It is a place where Alex feels comfortable and included. We hope that we can call Carbondale home for along tine.
In our community, Alex knows EVERYONE and everyone knows Alex. When we go out at night Alex joins us. She dances with everyone at the bar wearing her ear muffs to dampen the noise (please excuse the bad lighting):
And she sings with the band wearing her ear muffs to dampen the noise (please excuse the bad lighting):
Alex makes my life fun. She makes the people of Carbondale happy and because I am Alex's mom I am welcomed and included wherever I go. How did I get so lucky!
