Steve, Aubry and I just returned from the pilgrimage home.
It was a funeral that sent us home, so our hearts were heavy with the loss of Steve's grandfather; but our time was spent laughing and enjoying.
Webster defines pilgrimage as "the journey of a pilgrim to a shrine or sacred place."
That is what New Hampshire has become to us.
A place of relaxation, peace, a renewed appreciation for the world our Creator God made for us.
So now I sit here, day one back home in Florida wondering where to start and what to do.
Work wise my next event in 2 months off and then there is this itching desire to sell everything inside my house.
It was a rainy morning so that puts a damper on my garden time, or at least mentally puts a damper on it. A load of laundry is drying and my dishes await me.
So there is plenty to do.
In other news, Aubry is a good traveler.
Between plane rides, car break downs and mini-half-day-road-trips she has proven to be a pleasant traveler; this makes us smile because if a Cali trip is indeed in our 2013 line-up she has made the cut to be able to go. Speaking of Aubry we had court last week and for now she will remain living with us. Her bio-parents caseplan has been extended once again and so only time will tell. We trust her future to God who knows best for her.
Well I will be running, probably gonna make a "to-do list" and start crossing stuff off it.
I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and where ever you are are enjoying some warmer temps and seeing signs of life budding all around you.
Until next time extend peace and love,

Summertime has come to the Span Ranch! With hot 80 degree temps we have been enjoying the cool water in the little kiddie pool. It's especially gun when Illana comes over fro a visit!
Aubry is becoming more and more of a climber. There isn't a surface in the house she can't get on top of.
I've also been gearing up for the local pregnancy resource center's annual fundraising banquet; I've had the privilege and joy of doing the decor for the banquet.Today was set up day and I am excited to see the room filled tomorrow night. This is the second non-profit event I have gotten to decorate for and I've loved it! All the years of having fun at my own house creating space that reflects whatever event we're celebrating and now I've gotten to take that creativity out of the house!
Well Aubry is home so my computer time must come to an end.
