Jesse and I celebrated our eighth anniversary over memorial day weekend. We took a road trip to Phoenix and picked Jesse up a car (VW Golf TDI)! Because it is a manual, Jesse had the honors of driving the whole way home! (I am in need of some serious driving lessons).
We had a nice dinner at this eclectic Japanese tapas place downtown, where we had bites of pork belly, duck, tofu, and squid.
We also got a tour of Taliesin West -- Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home, which is now a school of architecture and museum.
We had a good time and learned a lot -- neither of us had been to a Frank Lloyd Wright building before.
One of the first things we noticed as we approached Phoenix was the huge and plentiful cacti. We saw a huge variety of them and other plants at their botanical gardens.
