taking a moment to find joy in the little things
While some are still under feet of snow and experiencing crazy winter weather, spring has come early here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm not sure if we ended up breaking any records, but we were close with highs in the upper 50s/low 60s. It's common to see the earliest spring flowers blooming in February (daffodils, crocuses), but it's not common to see the trees breaking out in blooms this early.
We went to Seattle this past Friday and Saturday and had some great weather there, too. We bought a City Pass which allowed us to do several touristy things at a much more reasonable price. With the exception of the Aquarium, these were all new to us so it was fun to see new things.

This is a statue in my neighborhood that I pass when I'm running. I noticed the people are growing mossy hair and thought it was funny!
I have one really messy daughter. It wouldn't be so bad if she eventually got around to cleaning up without prompting, but it doesn't even cross her mind. And then when I do ask it's as if I've asked her to climb Mt. Everest without oxygen.
