Tulips


our beautiful girl


We woke up on Saturday to the most gorgeous day of the year, by far. 70 degrees, perfectly sunny, the mountains sparking in the distance- just gorgeous. It was one of those days where we felt the need to spend every waking minute possible outside. We decided to head up north- just the 3 of us- to the annual "tulip festival". we had never taken Zara before and knew she would enjoy the fields of colorful flowers.

It was just a good day to be together- being outdoors, breathing fresh air, observing all the beauty that surrounds us, enjoying moments with each other. A day I felt grateful to be alive and experiencing the good gifts of this world.
