Snow Day

Something I love about Portland are random snow days...they're magical because snow is forcasted for weeks and never comes then one morning you wake up and it has arrived. Work and school are canceled, everyone comes out of their homes to play in the snow. It is truly beautiful! Dani experienced her first snow day today, she was all smiles...

Christmas in California

These pictures are from christmas morning we walked down to the beach, Dani in pjs just enjoying the sunshine and sand. It truly made me miss living in California, don't get me wrong we love portland...the coffee shops...the rain and cold weather getting bundled up...the zoo...walking in the forest by our house. All that aside I still love California and the feeling of home it has for me...I miss being close to family and friends. Something changed in me this last trip and the idea that one day we might move back rose to the surface, up until recently I thought Portland would be our home for a long time. I'm not saying we're moving back tommorrow I do feel we have a purpose in portland right now but i no longer think it is forever instead I view it as a season.

Anyways, we had a wonderful was quick packed with family and friend time. Thanks so much Rodgers family, Hollister family, and Mel & Dave for letting us stay in your homes...seeing you made me want to move that much more!
The next post will be Danika's 1st Birthday ....
