Hello Everyone:)

We took a walk tonight in Encanto and had a great time seeing the cute kids dressed in their Halloween costumes. I think the voted most popular costume this year goes to the princess. There were lovely princesses everywhere and their parents were holding their little hands from one house to the next. In the many years of trick-or-treating I did as a youngster I have never seen so many children in one spot as I have tonight! To our surprise there was an entire street in the neighborhood giving out free books, separated according to age. What a great idea! Maybe the kids wouldn't agree with me, but they sure looked like they were having a good time picking them out. Have a wonderful weekend! Sending my love. xoxo Mandy

FREE BOOKS for kids :) so thoughtful

Nicks 29th birthday at Gallo Blanco Café! It's so much fun to spend time with family and friends. This day was none other than one well remembered!

 A year can go by so fast and it's time for round two of Nick's BIG 3-0! Glad you're a part of it at the Wrigley Mansion. If you've never been there, I would highly recommend a special date night there with your sweetheart. It's the little things you do for her that she'll remember:)
My first Bon Iver concert in Tucson AZ. What a fun night we had! Sometimes when you feel like a break from usual, take a vacation for the evening. In Tucson is where we found a great little town that one can't forget...well we didn't.
Nick singing at the beautiful Pier 54 in Tempe AZ. Who knew there is a little lake in the desert of AZ??
 Just playing some music. It's a language for my heart <3
Dinner date at Cibos Pizzeria. If you like pizza ,it's where I invite all my friends from out of town. So...come visit and you'll see why.
 HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 at Mastos City Hall where Nick was jammin' for the night.
The rest are all the other memories in Arizona frozen in time. Sending love to everyone back home! from right here! I hope you have a great weekend!
Arizona State Fair!

Fall Greetings!

I love the fall and living in Arizona means the air is a little crisper alongside the chillfull mornings. I wanted to share a little love from a blog that I like reading called SAIPUA (all pictures are below). It's about a young woman and her passion for flowers and the farm her and her husband share. I have really come to appreciate flowers more and more. When I look really close at a rose I just can't wrap my head around how much detail is in the petals and how in the world that beautiful colorful flower came from a tiny seed?! The next time you see a rose, look at it really closely. My hope is, in that moment, you may see a beauty you haven't quit seen like this before.

Love you all,
