Portland was every bit as green and gorgeous and gratifying as I'd hoped. We definitely see ourselves going back up there again soon, but in the meantime we are happy to be home with our sweet boys and are ready to enjoy this sunny California spring.

Farewell to February

There once was a little month that was so short, and so quick, and so packed full of life that not a single blog post was able to capture its memory... at least not until March, anyway.

Farewell, February. You were pretty great, and apparently pretty delicious- since the majority of my iPhone photos this past month were of food. I'm not complaining, even if my jeans are.

But March, you're one of my faves, and I love your in-like-a-lion ways! Bring on the rain storms and muddy paw prints throughout the house... and in a few weeks, you'll make me another year older. I'm excited for everything this month will bring.
