Springtime...I see you coming...

A couple of Saturday's ago (yes, I'm still working on this whole staying caught up thing...) this was Seattle to a T. After days and days of rain and grey, the sun came out to visit. And though it was still quite frigid, I think we all breathed in a huge sigh of relief in knowing that Spring is on it's way. The days are longer and we can all pat ourselves on the back for making it through another Seattle winter.

We spent the weekend catching up with friends at the park...

Chasing bubbles from the Bubble Man (Seattle-ites...have you seen this guy? 50% awesome/50% crazy)...

Getting some much needed yard maintenance done while soaking up a little Vitamin D...
and cheers-ing and loving on our special buddies.
And just because I can't do an entire post without some pictures of this little dovie girl...

Springtime...we are oh so ready for you!

Life Lately.

So... I'm a bit behind.
As in, like a month behind.
Things like getting back to work, a slow old computer, a fast new yet confusing computer, learning our new groove... all make the list of excuses as to why I haven't been here.
And the thing with getting behind on your blog, is that when you finally find the time to sit down and write, it feels like you need to recap and catch up and explain where you've been and what you've been doing.
Which is hard. So many fleeting moments and thoughts of "Oh, I want to write about that" or "Remember this moment...this is a good one to document" and "Here's something I've been thinking about..."
But all those little moments just meld together and you're left looking at a month's worth of pictures and memories wondering where to begin.
So instead of wondering, I will just begin.
Our past weeks? Here is what they leave me feeling:
I love these girls something fierce.
I love Nicholas even more today than I did when I married him.
Even on days when he is driving me nuts.
Charlotte is hilarious and makes me belly laugh every day.
I think Madeleine has an old soul. Her eyes say so much to me.
I hate colds.
I love my family.
I love my friends.
Some days are really hard.
Some days things it all seems to fall into place.
Life is beautiful.
Life is good.
A trip to the zoo to see the new baby lion cubs.

Friday play dates.


Yep, that about sums it up.
