1. I think winter is finally over!! We had a brush with the old man on Sunday when it snowed a bit more. Luckily it didn’t stick. In D.C., Spring = cherry blossom season, and I was fully prepared to begin the celebration.
2. Dave and I normally exchange our presents after Christmas since we both go home to our families. Last year we did it at the cabin, and this year we were in our new home. It was fun to wake up on New Year’s Eve and open up by our tree. When I opened my gift, I found this inside …
I thought, “Does he think I need to walk Daisy more often?” So I stared at it for a second until I realized the leash belonged to a pup yet to come! I’ve bugged Dave for years about wanting my own dog. I love Daisy, but she is 110% his. My wish was finally coming true! I started the search immediately, and only recently found a pup that was just right. Her name is Jackie and she’s been with us for a little over two weeks now. She’s a quirky dog, but so sweet and cuddly. We are still learning about each other, but I am so happy that we have her as part of our family now!
3. As I mentioned, the weather last weekend was not the least bit inviting. I spent most of the weekend on the couch reading The Hunger Games. I know I’m a little late to that party, but can honestly say that the books are. so. good. I started the first last week sometime and am almost done with the third already. Next up, the movies!
That’s all for today, y’all. I leave you with April’s calendar page, which makes me smile thinking of my wonderful friends – we all take turns being the hugger or the huggee, and we always have snacks (and wine)!
