My dear older sister Mary celebrates her birthday tomorrow, May 20th. She is an amazing Mom to 2 lovely girls, beautiful writer & quilter , runs a dude ranch in Southern Arizona with her husband Charley. Mary has her masters degree in Environmental Studies and puts those skills to use regularly with the Altar Valley Conservation Alliance. I have had the pleasure of visiting her (& her family) 3 times over the past 6 months. It has been a real treat to spend time together and be in her dynamic world (I didn’t even scratch the surface listing all the the things she accomplishes in a day)! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY… thanks for being such a wonderful sister~ your strong spirit, warm heart, and incredible work ethic are great inspiration to me.
