6 months later

Nate and I have been married 6 months now.

We've been in this house for 5 1/2 months.

Summer came and went with only scattered days of warmth and sunshine making up a few weeks' worth.

The general warming though caused the trees to fill in a bit and the flowers to bloom up the driveway and in the backyard.

We put up a fence in the backyard to keep the dogs from running away, but of course they always find a way out if they want to get out. Where there's a will there's a way. They probably know the surrounding neighborhood better than Nate and I do.

Our walls are now decorated and our corners are filled in with accent furniture that has been passed to us or that comes from World Market.

During the dry days of summer Nate and I took to some trails within 5 min of our house that are beautiful. It's wonderful that we are so close to such transcendent forests. The huge trees, moss draping over branches and ferns sprouting out of nurse logs and walls of soil. I'm often so enjoying being out in the fresh forest air when hiking that I forget to snap a few pictures. One day though I remembered that after the fact I like to re-envision the environment and so I snapped a few shots.

So far I'm loving Seattle still. I've had a chance to finally get to some music performances in the house style. I miss seeing live music, so it's great to have such an accessible city full of it no more than 30 minutes away.

In my free time I've been getting back into art. This time I'm painting. More on that later :)
