embracing the last days of winter

Thank you all for your wonderful comments here on the blog, especially on this post! I love reading your thoughts and ideas, I feel so grateful for having such thoughtful readers! Last Saturday I woke up in the morning and felt like I really needed to go outside. I didn't want our regular coffee shop date, no lemon cake, no road trips, no shopping - I just wanted to go walking in the woods and mountains. I really miss summer and all the fun hikes, picnics and adventures. 

I put on Ben's wool sweater that my parents gave him for his birthday a year ago. It brought back so many good family memories. We walked on a snowy trail, no one was around, it was very quiet and calm, and smelled so wonderfullŠ½! When we came home I filled our bath with hot water and lavender foam, lit a candle, grabbed a book and took an hour alone. Ben played some nice music and even brought me a glass of wine. It felt pretty good and recharging. I hope to go more outside every week, we're thinking of taking Sonya bunny on walks again as it gets warmer.

A. I just need you to know that I DID send you a package (fin.na.lly). So sorry it took 800 years.

B. I feel the breath almost knocked out of me looking at these photos. As a Texas girl, more over a Houstonian, these landscapes are nowhere any remotely close to me. And I need them. My soul needs them. I can't get over how this is so close to you. You are so lucky, friend! Enjoy the end of winter, drink it in, live it.
