I think Punxsutawney Phil was wrong… it has felt like spring here this past week {well, except for Wednesday when it was a monsoon!}! What a treat in mid-February. There are daffodils in bloom in our neighborhood and the sun has been shining brightly. Makes me excited for summer!


I lucked out this week because my two days off were gorgeous! On Monday Ben and I went for a suuuuuper long walk and I even ran for part of it. This was the first time I had run with Ben.


I don’t have a running stroller so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I think a running stroller would be easier to push and maneuver, but ours seemed to do just fine.


Friday was just as gorgeous as Monday. Alex drove our car to work so I put my city mama hat on and decided to walk to the next neighborhood and pick up some plants to freshen up the containers on our front porch. It’s feeling like spring, after all!


It’s about 8 or 10 blocks to the garden store and we had a lovely walk there and back. The stroller makes an excellent shopping cart too. On our way back we stopped at a fabulous French bakery for mama to indulge!


Ben made a terrific supervisor when I was planting the new flowers I got. He was parked out front and loved watching me garden. I think he liked the flowers’ bright colors.



I think here in Seattle we’re in store for a bit of rain this weekend. Hopefully the sun will come out again soon and we’ll have another fabulous spring.
