my parents are here for a visit…all the way from florida (where i grew up). such fun. we’re doing all sorts of exploring as neither one of them have ever been to san francisco. today, we went to muir woods, one of my favorite spots around here. the redwood trees are simply glorious with all their might. here they are, my mom and greggie (as i like to call my step-dad), hugging one of the giants. i am so thankful for these two in my life. no drama. just parents. aren’t they cute? my mom and i are hoping to get crafty this week. she’s the crafty queen in our family. and greggie is the most calm and relaxed person you’ll ever meet – the perfect match for my mom who is much like me…a bit energetic and task minded and sometimes all over the place.
and oh goodness, i almost peed my pants when i spotted this heart. it’s perfect. found at muir woods, perfectly shaped inside the casing of a fallen redwood. love it. a new fav. it’s nice to have my family here. i haven’t seen them in over a year which, quite frankly, seems ridiculous. my promise to myself is to not let that ever happen again. they’re getting older. i’m getting older. life is here and now.
