Thank you...

I am so blessed to have loving friends and family. Thank you to all of you who took the time to leave such thoughtful birthday wishes. I had a lovely birthday with several opportunities for celebration (all of which included fabulous company and great food!)

My new website is under construction! I will officially launch the new site when I figure out how to use it!

Besides being my birthday month, October is my favorite because the weather crisply shifts to sweater and soup temps...the smell of roasting green chiles linger throughout the month...and, as I write, hot air balloons soar directly over my house. The view is magnificent! I wish I could pack everyone into my bedroom for this spectacular perspective--it's as if these balloons might crash right through my windows! Yesterday, I walked down to the park with the two little boys while big brother headed off to school. We got to see a balloon land, and the crew at work.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that IS my belly Judah is trying to climb up on.
