Jodi scored us awesome tickets to the DSO through her GM discount and we got to see Rodrigo's Spain last night. Sir Angel Romero was AMAZING! I don't know if he inspired me to learn how to play better or if he completely scared me away from the guitar altogether, though. There is absolutely no way in the world that I'll ever be able to move my fingers at lightning speed and make music like he does! But for now it's at least something to dream about.

Jon and I took Saturday afternoon to explore Cranbrook. We often visit each season to photograph nature and flowers and scenery. It is so relaxing and refreshing to spend the afternoon outside in the sun surrounded by beautiful things. We ventured out beyond our usual spot at the Art Museum and ended up touring the Bog Garden and Oriental Garden at the Cranbrook House and Gardens. The daffodils and tulips were in full bloom and the tree buds were starting to open. Jon and I have decided that when we either retire or both go fully freelance (whichever comes first), we will both be volunteering at the gardens on a regular basis.

Jen and I had a fun time catching up on Thursday night over Easter cookie decorating and egg coloring. We ended up with a ton of *mostly* cute cookies and some bright hard boiled eggs.
