This picture makes me happy, even though I can’t wait to start planting soon. Winter feels long, but it does have a purpose, as we learned last year with the weird warm temperatures that killed a lot of fruit trees in bushes in our area, which was hard on the local farming community.  I think of this when I yearn to rush everything. To slow down, and appreciate what is in front of me.

Moment to remember: an impromptu celebration for my old stuffed animal dog, Nicky. Our oldest decided it was his birthday and he and P made cupcakes and purchased a balloon to celebrate. I did my part whipping up a felt birthday crown :)
