Tickets Please

November 11th, 2018|

This planet we live on is a wonderland. So many places to go and things to see and do. It reminds me of when I went to the carnival as a child.

Where did the name Changing Willows come from? To get to know each other a bit better, I thought I would share the background of the company name ‘Changing Willows’ and its logo. All life is precious. While I cherish this lifetime, I also believe I have been here before and will likely be back again.  Following that philosophy, while I’m a born and [...]
