life

this past weekend was a busy one
but at times, it felt thick with despair…
watching news from japan, a dear friend losing her amazing mom, another suffering after a miscarriage…
things that make you question everything
and leave you with nothing.

i suppose this is the human experience.
pain. suffering. adversity.

and then

light
and
hope.

this weekend had that too…

sunny

i awoke to one of those late winter days-
chilly. wet. gray.
the kind of morning that is dark and moody
the kind that makes you want to turn off the alarm
snuggle back under the warmth of the comforter
and fall back asleep.
until may.

but stumbling into the bathroom
with eyes half open
and finding these waiting for me

turned the day
all sunny
just. like. that.

also sunny- the trader joe’s price: $1.49
yes, please and thank you very much!

signs of spring

could it be!?
is spring
really
nearly

here?

i ran out this morning to run some errands
and returned to these popping up in my backyard
this afternoon!

of course,
the rest of my yard is a hot mess
after a long winter of abuse.

but the to-do list actually has a smile on my face:
time. outside.
ahhhhhhh.

for the record, this post was not meant to torment my sister
who just received 24″ of snow up in burlington, vt!
can.you.imagine?!
no.
