We are a family of five, originally from the Co~Cola Capital of the South,

wholeheartedly starting over at the magnificent foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

We are The McDonnells. 

To be a McDonnell is to be awake and alive in this world, to grow in awareness and compassion, to be enthusiastically and audaciously bold.

We are daring, defiant, boisterous, and frequently loud.

We are fun, we are wild; we are smartasses, we are steamrollers. 

(We are flecked with hubris.) 

We believe in the power of story - the impact our tales have on ourselves and on others, now and for years to come.

What we do defines us; being able to craft our adventures into narrative is what makes us last.


These are our doctrines...this is mcdonnellism.
