I made a textured and slightly oxidized ring for E, and he immediately took a knot out of a slab of cedar, and fit it into it. It looks like a little sliced tree! I love it.
About a week ago, my mother and I took a trip to Salt Lake City. We loved it. The sun sets at around 9pm, and you can still see the sun's rays peeking over the buildings and lightly washing downtown with a glow until 10pm. People were very friendly, some even stopping to talk to us in the middle of the sidewalk. Incredibly sweet!
Here's my momma. (She's in her mid fifties!)
