  • adventure in payson, az with galaxie

    last week, galaxie and i drove up to payson for the day for an artist retreat. i was itching to be in the mountains, to hop across river rocks (rather ungracefully i might add. i almost fell in), hug some pine trees and smell the mountain air. 

    we ate lunch in the middle of a creek, foraged for autumn leaves and other mountain things, stuck our toes in red colored mud, and took lots and lots of pictures. 

    i am grateful to know someone who offers their knowledge and wisdom so selflessly, who challenges and inspires me. 

    enjoy some photos from our adventure!

  • Happy 90th Birthday Grandpap Geno

    Grandpap Geno turns 90 today but we celebrated a month early with a surprise party in Pennsylvania at the Italio-American Citizens club. Friends, family, grand kids, great grand babies, and many from the community came to dance, drink wine and limoncello, eat pasta and celebrate 90 full years! 

    Salute!

    I guess when the invitation says no gifts, that means you'll end up with enough cognac to last you 90 more years. The "afterparty" included a toast with 70 year old cognac and lots of Utz potatoe chips.
