Spring has sprung

Formal. But casual.

Some days feel like a rebirth of sorts. Some weeks are bullies pushing their sunshine way into my heart and soul. This happens to be one of those weeks. Patience finds itself at the end of a road, motivation runs at an all-time high. I have things I want to do and I’m going to start doing them now.

Spring has sprung

I’ve been coming home these past few weeks to a sun-filled living room, spring bursting through the windows without permission. I picked up a magazine tonight while grocery shopping. I sat on my bed and read for twenty minutes. For the first time in months I didn’t feel like I was running behind.

I still aspire to read for hours and hours, flipping switches and turning on lights while the light changes around me. But you know what? I’ll take those twenty minutes, I’ll laugh at the silly antics occurring in my household and it will feel really, really good. Spring is finally here in my world. How do you like that hot pink lip gloss from Joe Fresh? Spring landed right here on my face!

How is spring treating you? Do you find yourself emerging? Do you find yourself recharged? I’m dedicating this post to Bella of The Citizen Rosebud. We have had very different objectives for our Northern California weather. I want storm after storm, it means snowboarding.

Bella, this sunshine is for you, honey.

Stormy weather

29 Mar

This, my friends, is the reason why it gets quiet around here on the weekends during winter. We had another epic storm this past week which resulted in an insane amount of snow, which, if you happen to subscribe to my kind of math, equals instant happiness.

snow + fabienne = instant happiness

I had a breakthrough weekend, I did my first 180 off a kicker, (small jump). I then proceeded to do as many as frontside and backside 180′s possible in the last remaining runs of the day. The snow was soft, thankfully, as not all landings were, um, graceful.

I woke up this morning and all of my jumping and landing muscles were sore. I only have one thing to say about that: Totally worth it!
