If you think things look a little different around here, pat yourself on the back. Or knock one back. Either way. My web designer/magic wand waver Cynthia of NWDesigns cast a spell on this place this weekend, switching over to a new theme and tweaking some things. I love the result and hope you all do, too! If you’re thinking of freshening up your own blog design, or starting all over with a brand new design, I hope you’ll get in touch with Cynthia. She’s a great designer and an amazing illustrator.
Saturday afternoon, the Boy was at his best friend’s house for a few hours so they could pay tribute to their mutual Bionicles addiction, so the Girl and I decided to grab some food and then figure out what to do with our afternoon.
From the front seat, I asked her, “Do you want to go home, or for a drive? ”
“A drive,” she answered.
That’s my girl.
I wanted to drive over to Lost Dutchman State Park to be sure I knew how to find it when we go hiking there this week, but I sort of forgot that I would end up on part of this one road that I’m dying to drive in the Jeep. We kept driving and oh my god, the views were spectacular. I know I probably say that a lot, and I gush about how beautiful it is here, but it IS (and, hey, three cheers that I’m not bitching and/or moaning about my parents, right?).
The road we were on is part of the Apache Trail, a route that turns into dirt road not long after a little (little) town called Tortilla Flat (you just know someone makes a good margarita there), and goes for 27 more miles until you reach Roosevelt Lake.)
Anyway, here’s a little of what we saw.
