it's 80 degrees and we're talking about it.

There is no way I can NOT write a post about the weather today.  It was hot and beautiful and full sunshine!  I wore a sleeveless dress to work!  The way-warmer-than-expected-for-March weather is all anyone can talk about.  I think the whole state of Maine is in shock.  Everyone feels like we got a present, a little slice of summer right in the middle of March.  

I know better than to hope that snow and ice are over for the year.  But Reed actually wore shorts to school and there is going to be a full-on mutiny if I have to get that boy back into snow pants. 

This is Skyler hanging out in summer wear before her piano lesson.

And this is me sitting outside in the sun while she had her lesson.  I often borrow her teacher's copy of Eat, Pray, Love from her little waiting area/ library and re-read a few chapters.  I call that a good way to spend 45 minutes.
Everything is easier and lovelier and more sweet-smelling when it is warm and sunny.

In three weeks from tomorrow, I leave for my surf trip to Mexico

When I told Chris, the owner of LiveME gear that I was going surfing, he sent me this SurfME shirt and a whole bunch of SurfME stickers to bring to Mexico for the other women.  AND, he said he'd do another giveaway for you folks when I get back.  If you love Maine, I bet you love their stuff as much as I do.

Thank you, LiveME! 

I took 2 days off from running because of a calf strain, but I'm excited to run tomorrow in the summer weather.  I'm actually worried it's going to be too hot (80s again), but I don't dare to complain.  I'm soaking it up.

I ran this morning and actually felt hot. In March! It was more than a little weird.
I think Adam will go into withdrawal if the weather goes way bad again. He has spent every possible moment outside.
