Dear February,

Unexpected snow on Valentine's Day made my pup's day. Sometimes the PNW decides to surprise me with some snow and this Texan rescue pup is in her true element in the snow. She discovered this year that snow is edible and was running around the yard eating it like a kid in a candy store.

Valentine's Day itself was a little quieter - after nearly ten years as a teacher, I found myself for the first time in a loooong time not having to find cute perforated cards from the grocery store. I didn't have to buy foam heart stickers or help kids pass out their cards as well. It was a little bittersweet, to say the least.

Aside from that, February had space for working in-person with friends, a rainy day photo session, running in new neighborhoods, watching Ginny and Georgia, listening to YA fiction on car rides, library book deliveries, barre workouts on YouTube, Saturday morning blueberry pancakes, making panang curry with the boyfriend, and mochi donuts. 

February was different this year than last, but it was also really, really good.
