Dana and I had the most amazing tour of the valley last night, courtesy of our friend Mel, who, in addition to being the nicest woman in the world, KNITTED US SOCKS!! OMG. I love her.
After the longest work day ever, she gave us an incredible tour that included four stunning temples. My pics don't do them justice, but the graceful architecture and incredibly beautiful settings they're in was truly inspiring.
We totally did the complete tourist thing, hopping out of the car to snap pics. :)
The mountains here are absolutely magnetic. I'd love to see mountains every day. Mel's drive home is absolutely stunning.
Aaah - we got to this beautiful temple right at sunset. I'm sorry my picture isn't better. It was heartstopping in real life.
It's going to be harrrrrrrrrdddddddddd to return to humidity!!! :)
This morning, Dale Fillmore, just a beloved, beloved executive, showed us his family picture, and I had to share. Sweet. We feel welcome!
This afternoon, I took my final fave board pics. This little ditty is ingenious. It's a party decoration. The skirt is a napkin!! The top of the dress is with our punches. Creative people!
I apologize if you know the person I almost pushed down to take a pic of this adorable card!!! Look - those dresses are the flowers from Awash with Flowers!! GAH!! CREATIVE!
This just is incredibly gorgeous.
Adorable punch art.
Mmm. me likey owls.
Okay. This was genius. This was from Jill Kocherhans and Bonnie Thurber's presentation. It's a "recycle" card. All but one of the yellow notes in the envelope are blank. So you write a note on one, include blanks, and encourage the person you give it to to give it to someone else! Love it!!
Then there were some cute cards to celebrate the incentive trip to Disney.
And, as is my custom, I must introduce you to this year's goldfish - King Juan Carlos. He's been my companion here at the Monaco, and is very genteel and regal, as you might expect.
Tomorrow, there's supposed to be some big news or giveaways. I'll let you know what it is as soon as I know. :) I'm loving reading about your fave books. Keep em coming.
