It's 64 degrees .... IN JANUARY!

I feel like it's springtime. It's sunny, the birds are happily flying around, the air is crisp and fresh. The nights are pleasantly cool and the days are refreshingly warm. I find myself searching for the buds and blossoms that tell me that spring has spring ... and instead I find palm trees. And unfamiliar plants. And no flowers or blossoms or even buds. And then I remember ....

it's January.

and I live in Florida.


I can't say that I miss the snow. I'm enjoying the many many many many many walks around the block and trips to the park with Brennan. And all the time we spend outside exploring the dirt, rocks, sticks, and trees. It's something that we haven't been able to do since Brennan started walking after winter had begun to rear its ugly head. But, it's only been a week and I still feel a bit like I'm on vacation. We'll see how it goes.

On a different note, we met Brian's coworkers and their better-halves for dinner on Friday. I had already met several of the girls during my November trip, so it was nice to have a few familiar faces in the crowd instead of 14 new ones. Brennan and I were warmly received by friendly smiles, handshakes, and hugs. I had great conversations with some of the girls and swapped contact info with one of the girls who is pregnant and gearing up to be a stay-at-home mom. She mentioned that she could use my help with her registry and of course I jumped at the chance. I feel like I've learned a lot over the past few years (Hind-sight is 20/20 of course) and love to give advice about pregnancy and mommyhood whenever it's asked of me. And of course, I try not to give unsolicited advice since I hate receiving it :) I'm feeling very blessed to already have friends in this new place!

I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
