Fourth of July

Share

As an American I always feel just a little bit more patriotic than usual during this time of year. I mean, it’s our Independence Day! I am grateful to be free and I appreciate the freedoms that I have. Last year was my first Fourth of July in Big Bear Lake and it was awesome! I had only lived here about four weeks last year when the fourth of July rolled around – some of my newfound friends invited me to go out on their boat to watch the fireworks. I was skeptical; small town,

AMGEN Tour of California

Share

Fun fact: Big Bear is the Cycling Capital of Southern California. Being new to the area I had no idea this title had been bestowed upon our city. It’s pretty rad. I mean I knew about the community rides every weekend and I see people riding their mountain bikes up and down Snow Summit, but I was naïve to the enormity of it. This Friday Big Bear Lake will host the Amgen Tour of California. Stage 6 is a time trial and at almost 7,000 feet elevation, it will be

Mother’s Day

Share

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” – Abraham Lincoln May is the month we officially celebrate our mothers. I personally think we should celebrate them daily, but I appreciate that a day is set aside specifically for them. I am fortunate to have a mother that is awesome. She is my biggest cheerleader, she’s smart, fun, funny and just awesome to be around. I could tell a million stories about why I admire her so much, but that would take years!

Santa’s Village Big Bear Lake

Share

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads… A average December morning begins with the alarm beeping a tune that still sounds annoying no matter which ring tone selected on the phone. It is ok – because most of us were dreaming about

Comedy Comes To Big Bear

Share

This weekend Big Bear Lake is having its first ever comedy festival. It’s kind of a big deal. Two nights, lots of comedians at three different venues that are all within walking distance of each other. I’m not really a stand up comedy kind of girl. I have an odd sense of humor that doesn’t seem to align with what comedians think is funny. And I feel guilty if I don’t laugh. I mean this is how they make their living and I’m just sitting there like please don’t look
