A Happy Home


Once, when I was talking to Jason, Jeremy's brother, and teasing Jeremy as he walked by, Jason said, "You sound like you're related." (They have a really big family, and I've met a lot of them at the Garden.)

But that's how it is there: the co-owners of The Espresso Garden make people feel at home.

And someone stepped in today and said it was an oasis from the street, "Even the fence, and the fountain and the slope all leading away" from that chaos out there--it's our little paradise.

Today someone took one of the flower paintings home. She seemed like a nice lady, and she really wanted it to give life to her Vegas home--she says Vegas sucks the life out of everything. It was hard to say goodbye, but I gave it a hug and knew it had found a good home.

Sometimes it's hard to let go, even when you know it's the right thing to do.
