Balloons, Butterflies and Backyard Guest

We celebrated Drew's 23rd Birthday last week. We went out 
for dinner at Firesides and came back to the house for cake.
May you have a wonderful year ahead xo

We have rarely seen any Monarch Butterflies this year in our travels. They say that the population is really low this year due to our cold spring. Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending about 1/2 an hour with this Monarch as she collected nectar from a flowering bush in our backyard. It was amazing to be that close and watch her for such a long period of time. I wish her good luck on her journey south.
