Something strange happened here – kinda cool!

It’s a crazy beautiful black and white morning – Colorado Springs hushed and slow to welcome the day.

Happy Halloween!

Oh, the chill we’ve had as of late! But how a pretty frosted landscape makes braving the icy winds worth it.

Cuddling with my favorite newborn!

Made this beautiful cheesecake (those are vanilla bourbon apples on top) in celebration of the little one’s parents and grammie visiting. I gilded the lily by dousing it in caramel sauce. No one complained.

Wednesday morning welcome –  a most delightful change in the weather.

And then yesterday, velvet fog, which will, forever and always, be the softest Portland mornings, waking up cold and happy in a blanket of mist.

And just because – a little Stevie Ray Vaughn. Sometimes I need more guitar…

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

Colorado Springs – home of my dreams…

Well, we did it! We hosted our cousin’s birthday party Saturday (and took not one photo of the actual festivities, only the frosting, which was Y U M) and yesterday, a little afternoon garden party for our ever curious neighbors (What on earth are you doing??). What fun! And what a great relief, too, to have all that work behind us and everyone enjoying the beautiful fruits of our labor. There was much laughter, lots and lots of cake, and hummingbirds zooming about. WooT!

To treat ourselves, we’ve pulled not one weed, nor put one plant in the ground (though there are three echinacea waiting). This weekend maybe, but for now we are enjoying long walks to breakfast with the girl (thank you Good Neighbors!), book reading, game playing, and home improvement show watching, because that, my friends, is our JAM.

Happy Wednesday!

Look at that little river flow!!
