Why We Are MAD – Our Keepsake Story
Rolling on the Floor Laughing
Is Love Even Real?
Keep it Real
…you’re not here


Miller and Debbie Harrell, MAD Hippies LifeThe MAD Life: Life as we have and are currently experiencing it. A look into our personal, and rather, eclectic views on life, philosophy and what makes us tic. In a nutshell, the good, the bad and the ugly of daily life.  The MAD Life is honest, raw and unfiltered, to that end we have no regrets. We married young and have enjoyed the experience of growing together one day at a time.


BrainardFeb14-EditMarriage: Marriage is one of the most complex and fulfilling expressions of devoted love that anyone will ever experience. “From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven and when two souls that are destined to be together find each other their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.” – Baal Shem Tov


NILMDTS Walk to Remember 2015_152Baby Loss: A club you never want to join, none the less, you are not alone. Baby Loss is tough, painful and life changing. You’re never prepared for this but you learn to live with the new normal. “It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.” ~ Rose Kennedy


IMG_9068The Great Outdoors: If you know us, it’s no surprise our love for the outdoors. We love hiking, backpacking and camping in the Colorado Rocky Mountains all year. Come spring, summer, winter or fall, we enjoy nature in all of its glory, experiencing it for all it has. There is a peace in the raw and unrefined wild that just seems to cleanse the soul, invigorate the mind and strengthen the heart.

It is quite an amazing thing to hear someone’s story, to learn about them and to get to know the details of how they got to where they are today…life is a journey of love and experience.
