Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been in this space in so long! I haven't had the baby; just feeling quiet and a bit tired.

So, it's February again. It seems that every year the anti-February contingent gets a little bit louder. I have to say that I am not among them. As a child, I enjoyed February because my birthday falls in this month. And as an adult, I've learned that, in my part of the world, it's really March that's the long last month of winter. Next month when you are all snapping photos of the first tiny buds and other early appearances of spring, remember that I'll be exactly where you're at right now. Finally tired of winter and its drabness.


But for right now, I'm enjoying every bit of wintertime. The slant of the sunlight, frost in a window, evenings spent curled up reading with my wee ones under fluffy comforters.

Feeling grateful for the gifts of this season, however quiet they may be. Perhaps just a bit like me at the moment.

I expect to continue light posting here until the baby is born, and we will definitely put a post up as soon as baby arrives!
