Just couldn’t pass this photo opportunity up.  So freaking cute I just want to eat ’em up.

Nesting from Above

Life has been most interesting the last few weeks with unusual and complex cases at the hospital.  What has stuck with me the last couple of weeks is the vulnerability of life; both in physical and mental forms.  One decision, emotion, or event can change your life forever.  I’d been reflecting on that, sitting with that, as well as journaling about that and the ramifications of denying the vulnerability of life as a society.  Then Thursday afternoon I get a call from Jeremy at 3pm; thinking it was his check in to see what was in store for the evening he told me he was laid off.  From his job of 8 years……. there was no way I saw that coming.

So many thoughts, emotions, and planning has occurred over the last couple of days.  We are so grateful for the thoughts and support of our family and closest friends and while this seemly majorly unplanned event has left us with a lot of unknowns the beauty of it is that we are not in it alone and that there is time to dream a better life, a grander plan, and a healthier lifestyle.

Tonight we got to walk with one of our good friends I go to appreciate the beauty of nature that is just blocks from our home.  I felt in awe…. the comfort of the river that changes and yet remains the same.  And I’m hopeful.  IMGP4635 IMGP4637

Looking Southwest.

Today I accomplished a goal of mine with the help of my buddy, to see the rooftop view from the hospital. Tomorrow marks 1 year since I started working at the hospital and yesterday I was offered a permanent 40 hour full time spot there.

Looking South.

A beautiful day here in Springfield, Oregon with weather in the 70s today. Excited to see what the future has in store! IMGP4620


Family Time

A walk today at Alton Baker park was just what the doctor ordered!  Great time to catch up with my friend and breath in the fresh air.  We came across this family on our walk, their young daughter was singing in the tree.IMGP4618Then we came across this family making there way through the park.  I imagine they were walking to their own jingle.  IMGP4619
