Cost Less Market ... What a spectacular trip it is from Valley Home to go grocery shopping. Taking the time to appreciate this trip is something that I have learned to make a priority. Where else can you drive five minutes to go grocery shopping and pass almond orchards with beautiful blossoms, go past Bushwacker's home, watch cattle and horses grazing on lush green pastures, then at the edge of town and right before shopping, pass over the most spectacular bridge! Crossing this beautiful gateway bridge offers you a moment to reflect. Many thousands use this strong and steady passage ...

Over the years I've come to realize that there are definitely "seasons" throughout our lives. It has taken me a lifetime to understand that truly my life has had many different seasons. I look back on the season of my youth, of marriage and family, softball, football, cheerleading, rodeo events, our family would also see family and friends off to ...
