unprecedented


Growing up, I used to wonder if it would snow before my birthday; hope for it, actually. It didn't happen all that often, but it was something to anticipate. Now, in another time, another place, with kids as old as I was for those sometimes snowy birthdays, we're having nearly record breaking heat for this time of year in our part of the world. It feels just as unprecedented, just as exquisite as those days in my childhood when winter would come out of sequence. And all I want to do is drop everything and sit outside, just as I did for those first snows. It seems to me this is a perfect mindset for the eve of a birthday.

I'll let you know how it goes. xo
