Although it has already gone by way too damn fast, this spring break has been charming.
Nick & i had such a beautiful time adventuring & spending two days outdoors. We both realized while at Petit Jean that it was, surprisingly, our first time to actually camp together. Once i get the roll of film developed, I'll post about it.
Yesterday, Meg & I took our little babies, Natie & Nate out for lunch at Zaza's & book store adventures.

This was taken right before he threw one of those olives over the railing of the second level of Zaza's when we turned our backs for a split second. I had to laugh.

&...we got to see our other loves-Kayla, Konnor & Righteous!

Konkon's defiance got the best of him.

A glimpse at the continuation of my 3D piece:

It's coming along...i've four more days to work on it!

Merry Printemps!

At last, the first official day of spring!
Despite a few scholastic stresses, I have had a particularly amazing week. 
-went on a six mile bike ride with my good friend, Mark
-had a late night date with my Nicklove
-slept until noon tuesday
-taught a short lesson on pranayama!(yogic breath control)
- ate delicious italian food in celebration of my momma bird's birthday yesterday
-basked in the lovely lovely warm Printemps sun on my front porch

My sister discovered today that we have peach-ish daffodils blossoming on the side of our house. I've never seen them in this shade before. They are a dream!

I think this is my favorite wall in our whole house. It will be coming down soon upon me switching bedrooms, which is fine, because i am willing to recreate it in a new space!

It is Spring Break now, & I'm starting it out by doing laundry & cleaning out the clutter that is my side of the bedroom. I can't exactly refer to this as Spring cleaning, for my mom has taught me growing up that spring cleaning goes way deeper than simply making a bed & folding some clothes(i mean, we'd clean baseboards with q-tips & clean underneath our beds-which to my ten year old self meant dragging out every single dirty sock, t-shirt, & toy that was ever stuffed under it in order to accomplish the daily chore of "cleaning" my bedroom.)

Sunday, Nick & I are heading to Petit Jean to spend the night in a teepee & hike & canoe & adventure for two days. Ahh, I am so very stoked! I jokingly told Nick that we would have to wear headdresses & braids & moccasins.

I mean, is having your boyfriend dress like Devendra Banhart in this photo for a weekend asking too much?

the fragility of human life has, once again, opened my eyes.

I'm in the process of two very exciting happenings.
One is with Natalie...
& the other is a 3d design project.

i've been inspired!

I do realize that Spring has only just...sprung...

but i am already so anxious for the freedom & overall emotion that accompanies summertime.

First of all, we got snow this saturday, the last day in Febuary. Nick & I agreed that it seemed to be the coldest day of the winter, but that is most likely due to the fact that we were loading his gear from his car into a building from a block away while bearing the cold wind and snow in our eyes. As is probably apparent, my boy had a show this weekend, and although it was a very long day/night(we didn't get home until 5am...after leaving the house at 2pm)it was very worthwhile!

These are decorating our cute little kitchen table at the moment:

I ate this for lunch/dinner/linner today:

And bought these when i made a trip out to Whole Foods which made me dreeeam of the beautiful things i'll be able to buy at the farmers market here soon!

Happy March!
