Happy Springtime!

IMG_2351.JPGAll but one of our clocks is set forward and the weather can’t make up it’s mind, it must be Spring! I’m thankful for the extra sunlight after 5p this week, if only that it’s getting me out of the house after work and making my lunchtime bike ride very beautiful but also frightening! Two days this week I left the office basking in sunshine only to find the sky had opened up by the time I finished eating. Thankfully, years of careful thrifting has left me with a ridiculous amount of jacket options and I only live four blocks from work.

The best part of the new weather is exploring our neighborhood with Jack, dying of house envy around every corner. I love our apartment, but I would sell my left arm to live in 80% of the houses on my block. I don’t think any two are even remotely the same. Thankfully, the neighbors don’t seem to mind that I wander the streets with an impatient pup, geeking out over their homes. Hope you’re enjoying this weekend as much as we are!

Bring it on, 2017.

Happy New Year!  As we chug forward planning our wedding, recovering from the holidays, and crack open fresh new planners (my favorite) the itch to hit the road and leave it all behind (at least for a few days) is ever-present. Sometimes you just need to go on an adventure like, right now. This time, we trekked up Hwy 4 to celebrate the new year in a cabin full of dogs.

2016 was a whirlwind of a year; I turned 30, got a puppy who is now all grown up, and became engaged to the best human I have ever met. I’ve lived in the same apartment for over a year and am thriving in a new career job, holy cow! For me, sitting still is hard. Living in the same place or having the same job for too long has, in the past, driven me to violently break the shackles of my life and hit the road with no concrete plans or money. These days, the prospect of cultivating the life I have holds so much more excitement and adventure than living solo life on the road, waiting for my moment. The moment is now!

This year, I’m digging in deep and I hope you are too. Let’s take it up a notch, 2017.
