Low Pressure Day!

Eddie and I visited with mom Holly, Ben and Evie this morning at their beautiful home in Eagle Ranch. Holly is one of those lovely, accepting people I am always so happy to be with. She is a super mom, with two adorable little ones. She has an easy style and grace that I admire. This was our first time to her newish home and it is very pretty and homey. There are two items in particular I covet: a basket she has on her kitchen counter and a ceramic piece in the powder room...both were wedding gifts for Eric and Holly. I think I will have to go to the Minturn Market again before the Summer is out to find a similar basket. There are three things she's made that I thought were so special. One is a chart for Ben - he earns stars for being good to his sister. The chart itself is a good idea, but it was also put together with such love. The next was a picture book for Father's Day for Holly's husband Eric. She created it on Shutterfly with photos of the family and it came out great. The third was a framed collage of Ben's early art work she's hung in his bedroom. It is colorful and meaningful. I remember how enthusiastically he jumped into the mess of art when he was less than a year old. This was a perfect way to display his creations! We had a really nice time this morning.

It's been cloudy and rainy for a few days here, which is so unusual and is such a treat! We need the moisture badly. Last night we opened the windows wide just to smell the rain. Since I didn't take the camera to Holly's, here are some pictures of our back garden today.





Tomorrow is Doug's Xterra in Beaver Creek. He's worked hard for this and I hope he has a fun time and a fast race. I will try to cheer for him with Eddie, especially at transition area two, when he'll be feeling the pain! Good luck, husband! I hope you do so well!
