She Cherishes the Rain

 From the moment we moved here and I woke up from our afternoon nap...finding her sitting outside in the pouring rain....water rushing by her feet, her face turned up toward the sky drinking it in.  Little droplets of rain traveled down her soaked little locks of hair.  I told her she couldn't be outside all alone, she turned around and looked at me, holding up her soaked stuffed pony innocently and so seriously and said "My pony is with me".  From that moment, we find her in the rain all the time.

I bought her a rain coat, which she was so excited about.  Sometimes she uses it.  Sometimes she doesn't.

That little girl reminds me to be thankful for the rainy days too.  A unique adventure AWAITS and AWAKES us if we let it.

So let's go outside the next time it rains, or snows, or blows, and feel all that weather on our skin like it's the first time, or our last.

I'm so glad she cherishes the rain.

Garden Day

Here we are. Checking out our garden plots for the springtime. Speaking of mulch, pathways, crops. Beautiful day with lots of sun!

Springtime and New Beginnings

Yesterday I heard the Mourning Dove. Today I notice little buds on the tree outside our bedroom window.  We will be full-term pregnant (37 weeks) in 3 days! Life begins anew. Now. 

I get inspired by Beginning. Doing. Creating. Finishing. And beauty. Last night was so inspiring. We got to sign up for our community garden plots. More than that, we saw a friend unexpectedly and also met a community of beautiful people. After filling out paperwork and picking out some seeds from the share, we drove home under a full, bright moon. 

No longer does it feel like bundle-yourself-to-pieces vibes outside. It's really beginning! Our first spring season here in Sunbury. So many beautiful people. This blog is also coming out of hibernation. This year is going to be like none other. We will share our lifestyle, inspirations, despairs and eventful happenings here. Stay tuned.

Love you all!
