A celebration of spring.

"So raise a glass to the turnings of the season
And watch it as it arcs towards the sun..."

(from "Don't Carry it All" by The Decemberists)

Yesterday, we went on a hike to celebrate the first week of spring.  We enjoyed the wildflowers, each other's company, and we followed the suggestion made by The Decemberists in this song.  At the top of the mountain, we raised a glass to spring and enjoyed the rays of the sun.
People mockingly say that we don't have seasons here in San Diego where the weather forecast is often "in the 70s and sunny," but our lives do have seasons, and I am in favor of celebrating the seasons of life.

I look forward to this coming spring season filled with flowers, long days, and sunshine.


  1. I really liked this post. :]

    & Matt's beard is looking pretty large and in charge!

    PS- The Decemberists are playing for free at The Jimmy Kimmel show next week. I know LA is far from you, but just thought you'd like to know!

  2. Thanks Bren!

    Yes, Matt's beard is quite large and in charge... sometimes it is overwhelming. :)
