My mood is definitely effected by the weather. I can do rainy or grey for a bit, but I thrive in the sunshine. My favorite memories with the kids are playing outside. We are totally spoiled by the weather here. I should NOT complain because we've had just spots of rain, which we need, so don't hate me Hill and other Washington friends. BUT, I'll just say that my favorite afternoons are spent in our backyard by the BBQ when Mike gets home from work (and he's working in town). Yesterday was one of those great days. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a feeling of contentment at home.
I lived in Seattle for a year after college. It was beautiful, fun, and sooo much to do. But I missed my sunshine!
