St. Louie

I had a wonderful week in St. Louis. It was nice to leave the 80 degree weather behind and enjoy some fall/winter weather. I loved wearing my warm and cozy sweaters, scarves, coats, and ugg boots. I was able to spend quality time with family and friends and get some R&R as well. A good friend is in the hospital with some complications with her pregnancy and it was a blessing to be able to help her. I left feeling refreshed and refueled!

A few weeks ago on Extreme Makeover Home Edition the crew renovated this coffee shop in St. Louis for a very deserving disabled man. He is a precious Christian! It was fun to see it in person!

The Backyard Is Done

Kurtis has completed the backyard! I am in St. Louis and I can't wait to see it when I return. The pictures look great and I am so excited not to look at dirt anymore. We are looking forward to entertaining and having out of town company!

Dad in Tucson

My dad came out to visit us for a long weekend! We had a wonderful time with him and did a lot of fun things. We took a drive down to Tubac and looked at all of the shops and I showed my dad Tubac Golf & Spa Resort where Kurtis took me for our 1st Anniversary! We introduced my dad to a fun dice game called Farkle and I turned out to be the Farkle champion!. We all love playing games, so that was a fun way to spend our spare time. Blanco is one of Kurtis and my favorite restaurants. We enjoyed the yummy food and the beautiful view! We took a day trip to Sonoita, which is part of Arizona's wine country! It was a beautiful drive. I never thought Arizona would have wineries. We were a little skeptical, but were all surprised how much we enjoyed the wine tasting. It was fun to buy local wine. We hope to return some time soon!
