Today was mostly beautiful, and definitely beautiful by Oregon standards!
I felt badly for the parts of the country still socked in with snow, but really pretty days are few and far between in a Portland spring--lots of rain and dreariness, punctuated by moments of warm sun. What a difference weather makes, huh? I don't think I have winter depression or anything, but man! Do I appreciate gorgeous days! Everything is a little brighter, feels a little more manageable.
Some of us went for a walk at work; we're fortunate to have an office located in a beautiful residential area, with lots of pretty yards and well-tended sidewalks. Pretty much perfect for an afternoon walk. And two of us had a meeting afterwards, so we kept a good clip!
After work, I met another friend at a little park, and we walked for about 45 minutes. It felt like a nice way to begin this journey--a couple of walks with great people. Nothing epic, but...I did it. I jumped back in. Yay for Spring!
