Before we left Colorado, I thought we should take advantage of all those yellow rose petals from the vow renewal. The boys didn’t want them, but I knew a little girl that would be pretty excited to throw them in the air. I grabbed a hanging planter (picked up from IKEA on a quick stop in Denver) and filled it with the petals. We were staying in a home with a beautiful view, so that made it easy. From there I told her she could throw them however she wanted. She chose to stand on a tall tree stump, began singing songs she made up and delighted herself in the fun of it all.
