Holly Jorgensen
Editor In Chief


Holly grew up in Fairfax, VA, and after also living in the coastal areas of Myrtle Beach, SC and Savannah, GA, she realized the mountains were calling. She moved to Colorado 21 years ago and although she misses the beach at times, vacations help to satisfy that. Holly has owned multiple businesses in the last 36 years, mostly in the pet industry, but nothing has been as fulfilling as overseeing things at Colorado Serenity. Holly and publisher Doug got engaged this past December and enjoy working, living and playing together. Reach Holly at holly@coloradoserenity.com

Be Yourself

Back in 2014, I wrote a series of columns in Serenity called Talk With a Townie, in which I in-depth interviewed local folks. This month, I am compelled to take a short excerpt from the one I did on Tupper Briggs and include it here, along with the poem that compelled...

Like Water Off a Duck’s Back

I’d like to start off this month by expressing my appreciation for all the love I received on last month’s column. I have been way busier than I like to be since the May issue delivered and I haven’t had a chance to personally respond to the messages I received, but I...

The Young Clerk and the Old Lady

A good friend posted this to her Facebook page and it was just too good not to print this month. I can’t give an attribution as it has been passed around for years and there is no way to know who originally wrote it, as with many things on the internet: Checking out...

Live And Let Live

I am compelled this month to print something that has been circulating on social media recently and that really resonated with me (and apparently quite a few others, since I shared it on my Facebook page and there was a lot of agreement). Common Sense Versus...

Furry Friends

You would think the pain of losing a four-legged family member would prevent people from wanting to risk that sort of torture in the future—at all costs. But for many, including this girl right here, living without them is a far worse prospect.  So, after losing my...

It’s the Month of Love!

Here’s a little selection of quotes—funny, poignant and sweet—to honor the month of love. We could all use more love, and I always enjoy laughter, so of course I had to include some humorous ones.  Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer...

Help Heal with Humor

I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 wasn’t anyone’s favorite year. It wasn’t our collective finest moment in time and many people talk about pretending the year never happened. Wherever you stand on 2020, it’s over and what we have left to take into 2021 are many...
