A Big Walk!

Zoe and I would like to make full disclosure that we have made very little progress on our New Year's resolutions so far in 2014. (More walks, reading, violin, sleep and appreciation of life's goodness).

We have absolutely NO IDEA where the first 19 days of January have gone. They flew by like the wind. Hence the absence of a blog post last week as well - the first I have missed since July 2013 when I started this blog. 

We have every intention of changing that. Right now, as we sit here, sedentary, not walking, not playing the violin, not reading anything other than these words that we write, we are feeling a little like sloths. But we are kinda happy about that. :) And we are planning to go to sleep soon as it is almost 9 pm. Oh, sleep! And we definitely appreciate life's goodness on this joyous 3 day weekend. So maybe we have made a little progress. 

But - tomorrow we have a BIG WALK ahead. It's the Martin Luther King March tomorrow! We are fortunate enough to live in a city that does this momentous event up right!  Nearly 100,000 San Antonians turn out each year to honor the legacy of Dr King, and we are proud to be 2 of them. The SA MLK March starts at 10 am tomorrow, January 20, 2014, and we will be there!  Here are a few pictures of us over the years. 

Hope to see you there!
