Winter here in Utah is no joke. I've never seen a better demonstration of the word "hunker down". People must be doing something inside their homes. People MUST live here. And you literally never know what's going to happen. You can't just breeze through with flip flops, when toes can really freeze off in the 2 minutes it takes for your car heater to get hot.
When we lived in Mesa, the summers were scorching. We air conditioned our house and I still couldn't sit by the wall or by a window or I would have serious sweat. The heat would somehow seep through walls, insulation, window cracks, door jams. Then there's April in Lehi. To bed, I wear cotton pjs, a hooded sweatshirt, and socks huddled under a down comforter. Ridiculous. And when it snows in late spring, people are downright ANGRY about it. A gloomy, raunchy mood envelopes the town like the angel of death. With big white chunky flakes falling from the sky.
There goes our green grass.
I think sticking to weather helps me not think about things like VA.

The picture is of her two years ago. She was 2 years old and we were in Arcata at my Grandpa's. Her hair is curly because of the coastal air and that dimple in her elbow, I can't even begin to express how it tugs at those lines in my forehead. I love it. I love her. I didn't expect motherhood to be quite like this. Seriously, but look at that picture, who skateboards in a t-shirt that says "I love Mommy" (gotta love Old Navy), a hat that says "I love Mommy", a large belly from drinking so much milk, and flowing hair that hasn't been cut since birth? Well, the answer is she wasn't skateboarding. She was holding it waiting for one of her aunts or uncles to come and push her on it. What a rose.
