A 70 degree day in the middle of February. After three months inside our hearts needed this. We needed this time to be in nature and together - to explore and breathe and be messy and SEE the details of earth and life and beauty. And we SOAKED it up like little sponges.

Life Lately & Chinese New Year

Life lately has been so full!

Canaan wrapped up ski lessons this week (his 3rd year - the first was a wash so it's more like year 2) and has been taking on the slopes with Daddy. This is the part of the story where I shut my eyes and close up my ears and sing "The Sun will Come out Tomorrow" to drown out the sound of my husband talking about my 6lb 2oz baby boy on a chair lift or barreling down the hill. Just gonna pretend like that's not happening. But also, it's pretty awesome and I love that they get to do this together.

We also celebrated Chinese New Year this week. It was just us this year, hanging out in our Chinese silks, dancing to Chinese tunes, and eating some very not-authentic Chinese food. But hey, the thought. Canaan did start to master chop-sticks, even taking off the little panda helpers. Lainey opened her fortune cookie (also not Chinese), and declared that it said, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed!".
