Today was one of those days that just had a negative vibe.

I am a glass half full type of person, so I’m out of the funk now.

Daydreaming of a trip to Maui helped…

my toes in Maui...2008

home is…daydreaming.

no show snow

What a bummer!

Yes, the Oregon Ducks losing to Auburn last night, but I mean the no show snow!

On Saturday night I was looking at the weather on my iphone and the local weather people were saying that we could have 6″+ of snow on the ground Tuesday night into Wednesday morning!  I was so excited thinking that the kids would get to use their new snow gear and I would not have to drive up to the mountains.

Unfortunately, since then the forecast has changed quite a bit and they are expecting the possibility of freezing rain that will turn to rain overnight. Blech, rain!

Born and raised in Colorado, I miss the snow during the winter.  Every time I hear that we may have snow in Portland I get butterflies of excitement in my belly.

I hope that we will get at least one measurable snowfall before the winter is over.  Until then, I had better plan a snow day up on the mountain!

home is…waiting for the flakes to fly.

and it hit…

Inspiration, that is.

It was easy today.

There is a blog that I have followed for a few months now.  A momma in Florida, who is also an excellent photographer, writes this blog.  I always look forward to her posts.

So, please visit her blog.  Read the birth story of her 2nd born, Nella. I cried. Hard. It hit me. The true emotion that she was able to share was amazing to me.

When I think I am having a hard day I think of Kelle and her beautiful daughters, who are close to the same ages of my children.

I don’t know this woman personally, but I wish I did.

This woman inspires me.

Please read her latest post and if you can donate $5, please do.

Pay it forward for Nella’s Rockstars!
