Beach buns

Gotta love being four and fancy free

Good. Old. Friends.

Yesterday my grandmother and I drove into the desert to visit a friend she has known since grade school. They both turned 91 this month and have not seen one another in over 20 years, but have kept their friendship going through phone calls every week. It was a gift to witness a connection between two women that has lasted more than 80 years and is a great reminder of how meaningful and important true friendship is.
I am so thankful for the women in my life who listen, encourage, support, and laugh with me while we journey through this crazy world.

"Parasol" Day

No. We haven't fallen off the face of the planet, although it feels like we've been on another planet for the past month or so. Life is GOOD. Summer has been full of traveling, laughter, sunshine, family, friends and some recent beach days. Maya's latest addiction is her beach "parasol" to shade the fair lady while she plays. She really is scrumptious.

Hope to be back on the blogging train more regularly with lots of stories and pictures.
