I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that spring is here to stay. A whole week of afternoons at the park and I'm loving it so ridiculously much. I wish it would stay between 60 and 75 degrees all summer long.
Around the corner and up one winding hill, across some grass.. and we reach a little park that overlooks half of Pocatello. It's beautiful. Not like my New England is beautiful.. but this place has its charms.
When Husband and I talk about where we'll build our dreamhouse and settle down for the rest of our lives, these are the things we're looking for:
-easy access to lakes, rivers, and the ocean (okay, so this is mostly me)
-outside a big city, but not too remote
So far.. we have no idea where this could possibly be. We love the dry climate of Idaho, but miss the green goodness of Minnesota and New Hampshire. We hate the humidity and bugs that come with watery places, but we're also not too fond of the color brown. I guess you can't have it all.
The closest we come to covering all these bases is Flagstaff, AZ. But even then, it's landlocked and I'm a New Englander. Somewhere in northern California, Oregon, or Washington.. maybe. Our hearts always bring us back to Boston.
So, we'll see.
In the meantime, we love our neighborhood, our ward, close proximity to family, having a park in walking distance, how quickly things like hair and towels dry, the view of the mountains from our kitchen windows, and the absence of bugs. Oh, yes. Especially the absence of bugs.
