Spring coziness...

It was so beautiful yesterday. I wanted to show you how nice it was, but the pictures I took didn't turn out how I was hoping. But here's one of the awesome pink flowering trees that I love.

Then the sun goes down and I have these snuggly boys to cozy up with. So glad Spring is here. It was nice to get the lawn mowed and smell the freshness in the air.

My brother called this morning to let me know that his apartment building had caught fire on Saturday night. I am beyond thankful that he was awake at the time and able to get himself and his roomate out the fire escape without injury. I love you, Justin. My thoughts are with you.

Spring is here!

Yay - Spring! It is absolutely beautiful outside today. I am loving the sunshine. Although I feel like I'm coming down with something, I'm hoping to mow the lawn today. Trying to get my house in order, the way I like it. I'm in serious spring cleaning mode. I spent all of yesterday cleaning and organizing and even caulked the bathroom tub. Love the productivity! But I'm sore today - shoulders are killing me. Not sure if that's from work or illness. Oh well. Loaded up on drugs and am good to go.

Hope it's sunny where you are. Love Spring!

Another set of changes in my life. I just received the new issue of CK magazine yesterday, and read Ali's article on documenting changes. I suppose those things have a way of finding you when you need them.
I've decided that married life is not for me. That's a pretty big change I'd say. I am on my own now, for the first time really. There are a lot of feelings that go along with that: apprehension, fear, a little bit of anxiety. But most of all, I feel strong. I feel in control of myself. I feel like I am capable. Capable of all the things in life that need to be done, and comforted by the idea that I can take care of them myself.
So, I am embracing this change. Taking the steps, for myself, that make me feel good about life. It feels wide open. I have everywhere to go from here.
