Sunshine in Seattle

I love days like today!  It is absolutely gorgeous outside and I couldn't be happier about it... I know that the sunshine isn't going to last long since it's still winter, so I am just happy to enjoy it while it's here... Cole and I went for a long walk around our neighborhood and then we played at the park for awhile.  I took him down the slide a few times, but he seemed much happier playing in the gravel and crawling around on the concrete.  A sunny day like today reminds me how much I LOVE and thrive off of sunshine... it sounds kind of cheesy, but it really helps me to see life more clearly... I was sitting at the park with Cole today and I was just feeling incredibly grateful for the life that I have and for all the events that have brought me to where I am now.  I wouldn't trade being Cole's mom for anything else in the world... life is good~
