Living in a State of Wonder

Last week was spring break here in Houston which gave us the opportunity to get away for a few days to one of our favorite places, the Frio River in the Texas hill country.
The scenery, the quiet, the big open sky was just what we needed to recharge ourselves and celebrate our boys 13th birthday. Mother Nature at her finest; real, raw reminders of life, loss and renewal in evidence as we hiked and paddled our way through miles of beautiful countryside.
Here's a little of our time there shot with my phone:






And time to just be still and enjoy a really good book. Ann Patchett's State of Wonder is a beautifully written story about the Amazon. It's a good read.









This was our first time to stay with River Haven. Lovely property, immaculately clean and very affordable. 
Now back to work!
