When Dave and I were first married, we worked at a resort here in the valley. Dave worked in landscaping and took care of the bougainvillea on the guest balconies. Any time I see the beautiful leaves and tiny white flowers, I think of him.


This year, as in the past couple of years, I’m participating in Susannah Conway’s “The August Break.” It’s an opportunity to just be present, look around your world, take photos, and post them to your blog. There are no rules, other than to use this as an opportunity to recharge your batteries a bit.

If you’d like to participate, join in…there are some amazing friends out here, just waiting to meet you.
