Dear Honey,

Wow! I can't believe that it has been over a year since I updated this blog. So much has happened I don't know where to start. Greg and I bought some property that is 15 minutes outside of town. Right now it is raw land (18 acres). We plan on building but haven't decided what exactly we want to build. We do know that we want our home to be as efficient as we can get it. It is exciting because there is a ton of wild life but not neighbors.
Since we have so much land I can indulge my hippie tree hugger self and start planning green houses, beehives livestock and the list goes on and on. Today I got a book about bee keeping in hopes that this land can produce honey.

Its exciting to have our own little piece of raw land. In a way I feel like I'm homesteading the wild wild west!

room to breathe

Greg and I wold love to buy some property and build a home in this area. However prices here in the Fruita area are too expensive. We have some good friends that moved up to Glade Park which is on top of the monument. We casually look for property and drive to check it out often. This property really has us thinking.

No we aren't moving just wishing.

ode to the peony

Growing up in the family i did its hard to not love plants. Although allergies tormented many members I was blessed with clear sinuses. While perusing the lovely choices at the nursery or home depot greg will ask "where are you going to plant that?" My answer is always the same "i'll find a spot" I love to watch each selection of plant grow. This year my favorite flower by far is the peony. I bought one 2 years ago and have loved it. This year when it came back after winter I was surprised to see how large the plant had gotten. So I bought a second plant.

the flowers remind me oddly enough of Jane Austen. I'm not quite old enough to have talked and befriended Jane... but through her novels and the time period history it brings a sense of strong yet dainty appearances. This describes a peony to me.

And the smell...intoxicating!

Hip Hip Hooray... I'm going back to school to get my masters. I was accepted to the program to become a librarian. I know sounds BORING, but let me tell you it has its perks in schools these days. I start my first class this summer.

That part where you can come into play is through MONEY!! I am now accepting donations.

I know it would be nice if we all had a little extra hopefully with loans and grants i can make it out without too much debt.

so what do you get when you turn 32??

A motorcycle!!!
i was getting jealous of greg always going on trips with his motorcycle and so we bought one for me. I actually am not bad at riding it. I haven't dropped it once and I did catch a little air on some whoops. I remember riding the 4 wheelers in mexico and the feeling of just pure control. Same feeling just a little slimmer.
