What started as a mediocre (and somewhat annoying) day turned into a pretty happy day. It's a nice reminder what seems so horrible will pass by, some times quicker than others.
These buds are in my backyard. I can't wait to see what they transform into. (Does anyone know what they are??)
So I think I'm ready for spring to hit. I got the snow storm of my dreams and since then I have started to feel little breezes of warm(er) air. The bulbs are starting to bloom and there are buds on so many trees. I'm looking forward to great events this year, some planned, and many not.
A couple of weekends ago we scouted out some camping destinations for this summer. It seems as we've gathered up quite a list- canyons, dunes, redwoods, fossil beds, beaches, rivers, tropical forests, and deserts. The best part? They are all within a day's drive. Nothing makes me love Oregon more than that fact.
Big news- it has snowed in Portland (& it's still snowing!)
I love the feeling of newness when out for walks, where nothing looks quite the same but you know you've seen it so many times before. Your home feels cozier, a book more welcoming, a warm cup (of anything) a necessity. And with the cross country skiers on every street, this storm seems pretty light hearted.
I plan to stay warm with this recipe, this book, and lots of blankets.
