Last Saturday was our 12 year anniversary — we wanted to do something special, so we planned a hike + picnic. It was a gorgeous day — the sky was a deep blue, there were a few clouds to provide welcome shade — it was 102 F — and even though we are in extreme drought here in Central Texas, Doeskin Ranch was looking great!

Just look at all that little bluestem.  If I was a cow, I’d have had a picnic!

We found a shady spot under a juniper to have our own picnic — potato curry kolaches from the Persian bakery down the street, grapes, and rootbeer.  Mmmmm.  But first, we opened letters that we had written to each other.  J’s letter to me made me want to cry it was so sweet.  He also gave me a beautiful necklace — will have to post a pic soon.

Here we are, pausing in the shade.  Even tho it was hot, we had our sun shirts on so that we wouldn’t turn into lobsters, ha!

There were still lots of little things blooming, like this pink growing out of solid rock:

Ahhhh, what a view.

Then after we we finished hiking we went for a swim — felt so good!

This Saturday we’re planning our trip to Japan, which is where we’ll be next Saturday!  Can’t wait.  Oh and I’m working on this, too — can you guess what it is?

  3. Sounds like you had a very nice anniversary.  Mike and I spent our 37th anniversary at the Medical Center with Mike getting his gall bladder removed.    Jamie, Eric and Colin went to see Ponyo last weekend end.   Colin liked it, Jamie thought the one you gave Colin was better and Eric slept through it.  Love,  MOM
