Happy Ostara!

This weekend marked the start of spring and I was inspired by Emery's flowers so...In honor of new beginnings and to spruce up the yard for Casey & Marie's reception this weekend I cleaned out the old manure spreader and planted a lovely little flower bed. The focal point is this amazing gardenia...when the wind blows you can close your eyes and imagine you are somewhere tropical and lovely thanks to the glorious smell.

Oh yeah, Jed and I also did 11 miles on Sat...what are we thinking?!?! The turn around point was Arizona Falls - so I snapped a picture of that as well. A little sore and a little sunburned but otherwise no worse for wear.

To top the whole weekend off we went to see Les Miserables at Phoenix Theater and belated Valentines / 11yr anniversary present. It was wonderful! Can't wait to see more shows there - what a great space.

Sending love to all - enjoy the weather while it lasts.
