Nothing makes me happier than spending time with people I love. When conversations turn to love languages and how people express love, I am always confident knowing that mine is spending quality time. This week, I've been smiling quietly remembering my wonderful weekend with my daughter-in-law.
1. Hiking at South Mountain
You can see how steep our trail was.If you look carefully, you'll see that I added a little note to the photo below showing where we parked our car and how far away it was.
2. The Cafe at The Farm
Eating lunch among the blooming flowers.
3. Walking through the organic gardens, we found this:
4. In the back corner of The Farm's property is an artists' studio. If I lived in Phoenix, I'd beg to be part of this studio!
5. On Sunday morning, my daughter-in-law was kind enough to drive me to a suburb of Phoenix to hear Joshua Becker speak. He is a blogger and writer at becomingminimalist.com. If you are interested in simplifying your life, your possessions and your commitments, I recommend that you read his blog and his books Simplify and Inside Out Simplicity. He's an inspirational speaker, just a guy with a family and a house in the suburbs who wants to help people find their passion and the space and time to pursue it.
My passion is my family and spending time nurturing my relationships with them. My weekend spent with my precious daughter-in-law was the best gift!
