The Spring in Arizona is beautiful. The desert "blossoms like a rose". You might not think that scripture refers to AZ, but it applies anyway. There are new flowers (not tulips however) blooming everywhere and the smell of Jasmine is COMPLETELY INTOXICATING. A few times last week I took the kids out in the evening. There is a house down the street that I can tell has Jasmine in the yard. I can't see it, but the smell is so overwhelming that I KNOW it is there, just beyond the fence.
When we buy a house, I will most certainly plant a Jasmine bush. . . because it makes me SOOOOOOO happy. So, I will replace my favorite tulips for Jasmine. . . Happily.
Spring Break is almost over. It wasn't THAT bad. Peter works 2 nights a week until 8:00 p.m. Those days were L.O.N.G. and he took a test this weekend that he has been studying for for months, eating up Saturdays where I would be "on duty" all day as well. He passed. I am so happy for him, I almost feel like I passed it myself. Isn't it great to have so much joy for someone else that you almost feel like it is your own? It is yet ONE MORE THING that we have put behind us. There is a list about a mile long . . . but

Our trajectory feels like it has finally changed to be on the path. . . the reason we came to the desert in the first place. To start a new life. It feels like it is finally here, blossoming along with the spring.
I bet you didn't know.. but there are TONS of butterflies in Arizona. They are all over, and sometimes it is amazing to me how they flourish in the Desert. They are beautiful, and I love watching them. It is amazing to think of their transformation. . . I feel like we too are breaking out of our cocoon.
