Fast forward...a whole lotta years, and we buy our house in Portland. It backs up to a natural green space that has two ponds (real ones, not drainage ditch type ones). The first warm spring evening, I opened the windows and fell asleep to a beautiful chorus of frogs, complete with bull frogs...so cool!
I mention all of this because I stayed at my mom's this weekend and slept with the window open, just so that I could listen to the frogs. Great memories from childhood.
In fact, I like frogs so very much, that I had a permanent one installed on my right shoulder when I was 22.
And then he received a beautiful upgrade when I was 34.
Don't you agree? Much cooler with something to sit on, rather than just a dumb frog hanging out.
And in other news...
It was a great weekend, complete with time spent visiting not one, but TWO of my long time girlfriends, and scrumptious food at one of my favorite restaurants!
|1: Spicy Octopus and Prawn Stew 2: New pub opening soon 3: Saturday night's menu|
4: Me and Jenn 5: The drive to PDX
And then some family time...always needed and appreciated and loved!
|1: The cutest niece and nephew EVER! 2: The Gorge 3: My favorite poplar stand|
4: Waterfall whose name I don't know 5: Prettiness
6: Diesl decided my sister's hand weight would make an excellent chew toy. Sorry Handle!
I hope you all had super fabulous weekends! Cheers to a great week!
Have an awesome day!
