signs along the way

Libby, Logan, Naomi, and I spent last week in the car road tripping from Michigan to Arizona and back again (I was in 11 states during the 10 day trip). I thought you might enjoy a few of the signs we saw along the way.

I was pretty tickled to see a few iconic sights along Historic Route 66.

who knew??
(at our hotel near the Grand Canyon)

Libby, Naomi and I took a hike in the Canyon and stopped to snap a picture at the popular Ooh Aah Point on the way down.

The sign at the top of our hike. 

Wide variation of temperature at the Canyon.

Happy dance moment: Smoke Free hotels. 

Home again home again after 4,800 miles(!)

tea with jam and bread

On Saturday, Sara and I spent the day together celebrating my recent completion of a four hour accounting exam. After enjoying {Malawian} tea with {fresh} bread and {strawberry} jam, we headed out for some shopping.

Life would be dull without good tea and good friends.

I was amused to find Sleepytime tea in the basket at work last week.

At least it is unopened.

26 January

I bought a hyacinth bulb at the grocery store a few weeks ago, and have enjoyed watching it grow and bloom. It's currently boasting its second bunch of aromatic deep violet flowers.

Sam, Sara, Sharon and I got together for some heart pizza and Olympics recently.
Happy belated Valentine's Day, all!

We had some icy weather recently which slowed down my morning walking commute by a few seconds since the treacherous coating required a mincing ice-walk to get to the main road from our apartment.
