Saturday Drive

My dad is in the process of selling his '58 Impala. He's had it since I was 3, and so I don't really remember life without it. I was determined to have one last spin in the car before it sold, so Zac and I made a spontaneous trip to Lewiston on Saturday. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the air was warm...we had all the elements for a wonderful cruise! Zac and I made sure to take some pictures to remember the car; after all, it was like a sibling to me!

Little Hands

I was privileged this weekend to spend some quality time with my college roommates. The purpose of the gathering was to meet the first baby, born three months ago to the day. What a joy it was to touch those little fingers!

Isn't it incredible how much potential each baby's hands hold? Who can count the number of mud puddles those hands will splash in, or how many jungle gym monkey bars they will cling to? How many times will those hands slip into mommy's or daddy's bigger ones? How many people will those hands help throughout his lifetime? The promise in those little fingers is indescribable.

It brings me hope.

This is a unique photo that Zac took. Can you tell what it is?
This is one of my favorite pictures. I feel like it has a lot of energy and it always makes me smile when I see it.

Slowly but Surely

Spring in Minnesota has taken its time, but in the last few weeks I'd have to say there have been more Spring days than Winter days.

This makes me smile.

I just got in from a walk - my face is still cold to the touch and my clothes smell like fresh air. Life is good and I feel the satisfaction of knowing that even better things are to come.

Just like Spring has taken its time, Spectrum of Amber has taken its time too. My aspirations and motivation to start a business spent some time in hibernation, but now the hesitations are melting away. I'm proud to report that on Thursday I mailed in my forms to be an official business. I know that exciting things are to come. I look forward to the ride!
