It was to awesome to finally head outdoors for even a small hike. The clouds rolled in last night and the sound of rain on my roof made me so happy. I love September; the change in weather, apple pies galore and that cozy feel of fall. But it’s not just that, this was my first hike in months. Pregnancy was a wee bit hard on me the first couple months, but this morning I woke, after finally sleeping through an entire night, and it was like complete elation. Finally heading out to my favorite place in town (Kenna by the compost dump) was GLOOOOOORIOUS (you have to say that Oprah style). Sagebrush scent was faint in the air, colors deep and rich from the rain, birds winging skillfully over bush tops. Heaven.
