Hi, Friends!

My family has been traveling, and after a glorious visit with my BFF, we spent a week at a ranch where they had NO internet. I can't remember the last time I went seven days without internet. It was intense, let me tell you. But then again, our days were full hanging out with good friends and eating delicious food, and I didn't mind the no internet thing. (My kids had so much fun that they were practically unrecognizable each day when they arrived back at the RV covered from head to toe in ranch dirt.)

What that means is the blog posts I had planned didn't happen. I didn't read any quilt blogs. I hung out with my family and sat in the sunshine and learned to peg loom and one day even drove ninety minutes to get to town where I tried on cowboy boots and bought some "bling" jeans. I was able to watch a storm roll in while basking in the wide open skies. The smell of desert rain is incomparable. I miss the southwest something fierce, friends. And while I'm back to internet (and piles and piles of laundry) I will miss the awesomeness that was our trip.

I'm just popping in today, but I'll have more trip photos--including photos of my epic visit with Samantha and some really yummy fabric--later. For those who have written me super sweet kind emails checking to make sure I was still breathing, I seriously heart you. And hopefully I'll find a moment to get back to you today or tomorrow.


  1. Yay for disconnecting and taking the time to watch a storm roll in. Welcome back!

  2. I'm not sure whether I could go a full week w/o Internet. (Surely I could never talk my husband into that!) A week w/o blogs and Instagram would be doable and, I imagine, could impact my creativity in a good way. Although I find great inspiration in what others are doing, you can have too much of a good thing. I hope you and your family are feeling rested and recharged!

  3. Sounds like a great holiday, something all kids should get to do. I grew up on a farm, and now my kids experience the farm when they visit my parents weekly. Such a good life to experience. Desert rain sounds awesome. I love the smell of summer rain. Don't get it enough in South Australia.


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
