I flew into Bellingham last night, watching the orange and blue sunset on the horizon the whole way. Standing outside the airport waiting for my dad to pick me up, I spent a few moments breathing in the heavy marine air that I miss so much in Portland. I woke up this morning to my mom's beautiful garden, the bay, chickens, cats, this beautiful arrangement of birthday roses (roses for Rhiannon Rose!), a British birthday song voice mail, fresh blueberries and Bagelry bagels for breakfast, and this sweet little birthday gift from my mom. This ring and necklace are made from old typewriter keys!
Not a bad way to start my 24th year, right? Today I'm having a picnic at the farm with my family who is in town from Florida (that's actually why I am in Bellingham, to see them), taking my cousins to the outdoor pool where I worked for six years through high school and college summers, and having dinner with everyone at my dad's house.
