My best friend and I celebrated our 12th Anniversary this week. My parents were in town and they graciously watched our three Jedi Knights, an Ewok puppy and 14 chickens while Charming and I took a day to ourselves. (Thank you!!)
We enjoyed a sunny day trip to San Juan Island and fell in love with the gorgeous farmland and sweeping views of the water. I saved Charming when I saw a bee in his hair while he was driving. And he saved me when the bee flew onto my shoulder and he whacked it off with a water bottle. Then he made me laugh so hard when he sang banjo music as the soundtrack to our little adventure.
Someday, I am going to write a historical romance novel set in this magical slice of heaven, with a Cousin Vinnie from Brooklyn who makes authentic New York subs that I can still taste.
And someday, Charming is going to buy a farm there. And pile up all of his rocks right in the middle of the field, just like an islander.
Happy Anniversary, My Love! You’re the best decision I ever made.

… And we had such a fantastic day celebrating with him!
Rebel troops, Jedi Knights and Princess Leias helped us defeat Darth Vader, destroy the Death Star (our first attempt at a pinata!) and eat R2-D2 while Star Wars music played and chaos rang out merrily.
Happy Birthday, Brother! You are such a treasure. Thank you for coming to our family! We love you with all our hearts.

Our little tree out front is blossoming and completely charmed me on my way home from physical therapy tonight. The sun was setting after a gloriously sunny day and my camera just sang my name. Thankfully, Edwin helped my back enough that I could go out and stand on tiptoe to capture a few gems.

A couple of days ago, I wondered when the cherry blossoms would bloom at my Alma mater. When I found out they were right at that very moment, I asked my husband if he was game for an early morning visit yesterday and he was! We took the boys down and enjoyed a perfectly lovely visit to one of the most romantic places I know. Now I just need to figure out how to include it in my novel.
