muirinspired2016

I am so over the moon right now because I finally finished the counted cross stitch to celebrate our trip to Yosemite National Park – our very first National Park; Muir Inspired 2016.  #muirinspired

When I was thinking about the design I was going to stitch I knew I wanted to use a quote by John Muir.  He did so much to save this park and there is so many wonderful things we have learned because of him.  As we walked through the park I thought about how he probably walked the same path as I had at that very moment and I felt so special.  Too often we as people do not truly appreciate what we have until we have lost it; thank goodness for men and women like John Muir.  These people have helped to save these precious places and enabled all of us to step in the same paths as men and woman of wisdom.

I want to dedicate this piece to our good friend Barbara.  She has encouraged and encouraged us to step out and see the wonderful things in life.  Thanks Barbara, may the road come up to meet you.
