Are you sick of that love quote yet?!  Nothing too long to follow, at least not just yet. Life has been crazy, busy, but good. Sometime soon I'll have pages full of pics on here again, but for now, all I have is another quote, because, well... It's completely perfect for this moment.

Snowy Day Snapshots

Snow started to fall on Thursday morning.  I realize that the rest of the country has been dealing with this for weeks now and it's no news flash--but snow just doesn't happen here.
For that reason, Portland completely shuts down at the first sign of the stuff.  This blizzard was no different.
It took me almost FOUR HOURS to make the commute home that afternoon (the usual is forty-five minutes).  Thank goodnesss for red wine. 

The rest of the (4-day thank you snow!) weekend has been spent on a snowy walk with Ryan, lunching with my best friend, reading my new book club book, netflixing in my PJs, delving into that Valentine's chocolate that was "for my co-workers" (oops!) and overdosing on tea and zinc to cure my cold.  

Being snowed in is not so bad (:

Ryan turned thirty at the end of January.  
He's been working so hard he barely noticed, but I wasn't willing to let the milestone pass without a bit of a celebration.  In between ambulance shifts at the Oregon coast Ryan spent a few days doing his favorite thing: fishing.  I joined him in Newport for the weekend where we ate our weight in crab, sampled Rogue Distillery's creations, enjoyed a delicious meal at our favorite seafood joint courtesy of Ryan's mom and soaked up all the rare January sunshine.

Cheers to thirty, my love!
