peace out






After a week of ridiculous amounts of rain, a crazy weekend in the mountains { 10 1/2 feet of snow - no joke }, our skies have opened up and we have blue again.

This may have schooled me to finally enjoy our, normally, sunny Christmases with the windows and doors open. All week I've had kids + dogs either,  bouncing off of the walls, amped up on Christmas energy or hovering at my shoulder..... "we're sooo bored"...."go outside" ....."we already did that"....." go make up a game"....."did that"..... "read a book"....... silence.....and it goes on.

Now, with the sun out, they're riding their bikes again, life is sunshine and anticipation. And I'm able to sit for 10 minutes at my computer. Merry Christmas +  Happy whatever you may be celebrating this weekend.

Too true, I've often whined (as a native SoCal gal) that warm weather on Christmas just isn't the way things should be---but after contemplating building an ark mid-week last week I am grateful for the sun we witnessed yesterday and realized that, no, I couldn't realistically live in Seattle!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays Megan! Lovely photo... this rain...was charming for a couple of days but after a week not so much!( I just shared a laughable story of my rainy little shopping spree in Santa Monica before I left to see my family!) I am Sooo glad the sun came out and you had sunshine to enjoy at last!

Happy New Year Megan!
I arrived in SoCal during that rainstorm and was at Huntington Beach with my toes in the sand on the day of your post. It was so gorgeous. Very difficult to come home to freezing temps this week.
I'm looking forward to see what you're up to in 2011! Thanks for the inspiration! ~Joan on Bainbridge Island
