I should be packing...

but I'm blogging.

Because I'm so overwhelmed that I need a break.

Wouldn't waking up to this overwhelm you?

The unfortunate thing is that I keep taking breaks. And every time I come back from them, I'm even more overwhelmed.

Today my breaks included a trip to Thanksgiving Point, a local garden. So beautiful.

Rose season is in full force, and it gave me the opportunity to photograph flowers, one of my favorite hobbies.

(Is it pathetic that I have hundreds of pictures of flowers on my external hard drive?)

Roman, Blaise, and I also took a stroll through Farm Land to see the animals. There were babies galore, wagon rides, and peacocks.

It's things like this that I'm going to miss. I'm sure that Iowa has gardens and petting zoos and such. I just don't know about them yet.

I've been trying to make it to all my favorite places over the last couple months...

Red Butte Gardens...

Feeding the fish

Playing on the giant lizards

Wheeler Farm...

Feeding the ducks

Thanksgiving Point...

Enjoying the amazing flowers today

We didn't make it to the zoo or the canyons.

And I know for a fact, there are no canyons in Iowa.


  1. I hate packing...but I hate unpacking more. Crossing my fingers that you are MUCH better at it than I am.

  2. Good Luck on packing, moving, etc. That picture of boxes looks all to familiar!
