Voilà, c’est le printemps!

I’ve been working my butt off so much recently that I very well may have to write today’s post while standing. I’ve been working seven days a week, from early morning to late night, sometimes straight through till the next morning.

After another long stint in front of the computer, I managed to get “outside” for a whole 30 minutes. It was refreshing; the sun was out, the sky was blue, leaves were green and the air smelled distinctly floral. Ahh, the world in 3D.

I had enough time to snap a few photos of some new magnolias. Here’s one image that came out well.

Back to the grindstone…

Cherry Blossoms in Lake Oswego

Codi and I were on our way home from Starbucks yesterday and we snapped a few pictures of the cherry blossoms that are bursting to life all over Lake Oswego. The colors were pretty amazing – bright vibrant pinks, greens and the bluest blue sky ever.
