Mid-March: I spent many mornings, evenings, and weekend days sitting crossed legged on the floor of our apartment working on tons of new sulu-design jewelry. I restocked Tumbleweed, Tender Loving Empire, Noun, and betsy & iya with the new pieces. I didn't feel like taking photos of the new pieces, so I didn't. Now I wish I had, but in another month and a half I'll have forgotten all about it.
Late March: After spending enough time indoors, I asked Barry to take me on an outdoor adventure. I got what I asked for with a hike through a snow storm just east of Mount Hood.
Bring on April: The following weekend, I wanted an adventure of the sunny variety. Barry and the weather obliged. We found ourselves with our bikes east of Mount Hood again, just a few miles away from the spot where we went on the snowy hike the week before. We had a fantastic, sunny, much needed weekend of camping. I am itching for our backpacking season to begin. I find myself regularly wondering how I could make living in a cabin in the mountains work for us.
Last weekend, we had one of those days where everything (everything, that is, except the theft of my bike) seemed just right: coffee from a great cafe, lunch outside in the sun, a long stroll with our cameras along the train tracks into the industrial part of our neighborhood, and the rediscovery of a favorite building.
