These tulips spent several days in our house, so I took a few pictures on two separate days. All my favorites came from the day the flowers were dying. They had such unique shapes, and were so delicate that a mere bump caused the petals to fall to the ground.

Inspired by my trip to Mt. Hood last weekend, and a day off from work, I drove to Timberline today. The whole drive Mt. Hood served as a beautiful backdrop, completely white and contrasted against the rare blue sky of an Oregon winter. These pictures are what I saw on my hike. Both the peak and the valley behind me were extremely beautiful. I was reminded that when hiking in the snow it is always worth taking the time to put on snow pants, as I climbed into my car in wet jeans. It was a beautiful day, and I was so thankful for some time to get away and think and get out and breathe some alpine air.

For the majority of my life babies have been a source of slight fear. I really love them, but don't exactly know what to do with them. This fear, plus a few negative crying experiences, have led me to my current state. However, Jonah is a baby that is helping rid me of this unnecessary fear. I have been grateful to get to watch him grow up and spend some time with him from time to time. He is such an animated baby, as these pictures hopefully show. He is also such a happy baby, his smile taking up his whole face. I can see why though, his parents do such a great job of loving him.
