The past few days have been a microcosm of life…….the birth of a baby and the remembrance of a loved one gone on to heaven.

we set out on an eight hour drive north to honor our cousin and her family. As we drove, the amazing beauty of the Salinas Valley offered both joy and consolation.
Once again the Master Designer has provided beauty and comfort.
