martha's dress and red hot candies
i came home from an amazing weekend with my wallflower friends to the news the gate to the back field had been installed. i have been waiting for that gate for years now. and it was magically installed without begging or nagging. the perfect valentine.
coincidently i had a handful of sweet dresses from martha hanging in my closet. she had generously had them delivered by her husband the night before i left for twenty-nine palms. regrettably we didn't get a chance to use them at the retreat. with a little persuasion i told my kate that i needed her to model and she came up with the compromise...she would come out back with me for a handful of red hot heart shaped candies. sounded fair to me. joe joined us at the end. all he wanted was a chocolate kiss. xo
