Winter sunshine - what a treat! But the downside of an unseasonably mild, sunny winter is a very muddy yard. It rains, then the ground freezes, then the sun turns everything into sludge. As a result, there's mud caked onto all of my boots now. One of the benefits of choosing better quality clothing and accessories is that I don't have to worry as much about how well things will hold up, so I can stomp through the yard as much as I want!

In other news, I'm feeling really good about 2016 so far. Realistic expectations paired with confidence that I can accomplish anything with hard work and the proper resources has changes my perspective. I'm not overwhelmed. I'm excited and I'm ready to take on whatever comes my way.
