Why "The Cedars"?

Why "The Cedars"?

This week we wanted to share a little bit about why we called our future wedding venue and wellness retreat “The Cedars” / “The Cedars Ranch”.

Well, the most obvious reason may seem to be that we have a whole lot of beautiful Cedar trees on our 20 acres of Texan hill country land ...

... But “The Cedars” / “The Cedars Ranch” seemed like the perfect name for many more reasons than that.

The place where Bill grew up going to in the summer, in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, is called “The Cedars” and has many fond memories for Bill. And it was on the beach, right outside “The Cedars” that Bill proposed to Marilyn (and where she accepted!). 

While contemplating the name a little deeper, we did some research on the Cedar tree. We were delighted to find that Cedars are symbolic for healing and restoration. This is really what we hope to offer - for marriages, families, businesses, and people, here at our ranch.

XeriSmart landscapers (www.xerismartwatersolutions.com) continued to work on our land this week. They are working on the front section near the entryway, clearing out old dead wood and mulching debris. You can see some of our characteristic Cedars in these photos below too!

Tomorrow Coleman and Assoc. (www.colemanandassoc.com), a landscape architecture and environmental design company, visit our land. We have mutually agreed to work together and are excited to see what they dream up!

These sunflowers may offer our new landscape designers some inspiration! Aren't they amazing?

And lastly, for all you fathers out there, hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day!

Have a great week,

Bill & Marilyn.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog readers
have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but
looks great in Chrome. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does building a well-established website such as yours
take a lot of work? I'm brand new to blogging but I do
write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog
so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations
or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find
out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts
in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
hints? Cheers!
