Happy Monday eve! I hope your week is off to a stellar start. Spring is slowing springing here in Portland - fingers and toes crossed it continues. Two things have touched a cord with me this past week - the first this article in the NY Times. And the second was this moving video (thank you Lisa). It got me thinking about age and how we see ourselves, how there is still so much life to be lived. Could it be that perhaps the best years are to come, that the later years are the ones where one feels completely at ease with oneself and where one fits in life... The more I think of this, the more I like it... Have a lovely week. Annie x

Crikey - Monday already?! How'd that happen... I hope you had a jolly weekend. Ours passed by in a tranquil blur of quietness. R, the boys and I watched Senna - really quite a moving documentary. We woke to snow flurries this morning - all very pretty, but I'm beginning to think spring is somewhat overdue... Anyhoo here's to a good week ahead!

...complete with a few feathers and some butterflies. What more does one need?
I hope your Tuesday is rocking along nicely - we woke to a good dusting of snow which proved very pretty, even if it did make the school run somewhat hairy. Thank you for all your sweet comments about the house - I'm still pinching myself!

Happy Sunday eve! I had planned to post this earlier today, but opted for a somewhat muddy meander through Forest Park. Anyhoo I hope all is going well for you, and that the week ahead is a good one. I'm about to head off and catch up on some long overdue blog reading.
Very much like the light in this black and white.

...the boys and I arrived home on Saturday, and we're slowly catching up. A dusting of snow this morning, but signs of spring poking through...I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I'll be back later in the week with what:nots, and (hopefully) some exciting news.
