I'm In

We rang in the new year with a bang.  Fireworks at 2:30 a.m. directly outside the girls' bedroom window that sent me into a demonic rage.  After much freaking out and general drama, we were all back to sleep by 3:30.  In our temporarily caffeinated state at 7 a.m. Drew and I laid out what we hoped to get out of the day. 

Me:  Fresh air.  The woods.  The beach.  Getting out of the house.  Maybe some gardening - I noticed the crocus bulbs have all popped spring green through the gray and dark.

Drew:  Chill.  Play with the girls.  Cook a big hunk of meat.

Somehow we wove our needs together and made a day of it.

First a walk in the foggy/spooky/beautiful northwest canopy:

On to Fairhaven for lunch to meet Genevieve's need for all things urban:

Glass Beach in Bellingham to throw rocks and beachcomb:

By evening there was a big hunk of meat on the table:

2014.  Fresh.  Drama.  Meaty.  Fog.  Beach.  Woods.  Family time.  I'm in.
