Happy birthday Joshua!

So today is Josh's birthday. I posted the following on my myspace blog March 8, 2008 - but it is as true today as it was then and I supposed it will be just as true 10, 15 or 50 years from now. So, I thought that I'd share here too....

There are some people that you meet in your life that just amaze you! Josh is one of those people. Of all of the people that I know, I think that he has the hardest job on a day-to-day basis. And not only is his job difficult, but he has made his way through a masters program that required that he not only find time for school but be consistently involved in an internship. I am so proud of him and his work in our community.

There are so many great things that I could share about Josh, from his faith to his love of his family to his sense of humor to his intelligence, but I will spare you from going on and on. I just count my lucky stars that we somehow found each other because I am so fortunate to have him in my life and I am so honored to be his girlfriend.

Home for a few days...

We enjoyed our trip down south. The weather was awfully nice, as compared to the weather in Phoenix. Josh's parents are both green thumbs. They grow plants and sell them at weekend markets. So I took some nice close up photos of some of their flowers - I hope to downsize the photo and then possibly use in some resin jewelry designs. These are my favorites:

Off to Cochise

Josh and I are heading down to visit his family in the high desert of southern Arizona. It is always nice to get out of the city and take a breather. :)

It has been a long weekend of sneezing and coughing. I caught a bug and have been trying to sleep it off. I think I will be over it with another day of rest.

Josh has been busy, busy, busy around here. He put in grass on our back patio. Here is a photo of what our patio looked like when we first moved in, January 2008:

This is what it lo0ked like when we dug up and planted in the flower bed, March 2008:

And then, we planted some rose bushes, a bird of paradise and were gifted a few other plants by Josh's parents, June 2008. We also added a patio rug to cover up the awkward concrete that was not tiled over and some solar powered lights:

See that really nice table in the photo above? Josh's dad crafted and gifted it to him. His dad makes really amazing outdoor furniture - all sturdy and well made. And finally, Josh put in a patch of grass...Honey's dream come true:

It looks so nice out there. Josh put so much time and work into our grass. I love our little patio. It looks GREAT!!! Too bad I was so sick and couldn't help more. :(

Hard to leave...

So, I looked at my calendar today and realized that I don't have a totally free weekend until August 30th and then I'm busy through the month of September. I have 3 shows coming up. I love to travel, but it gets harder and harder to leave my boyfriend and my dog behind.

See why?
