Spring in Portland!! It's unreal. I don't think I've ever lived somewhere where spring was so abundant. Everything is blooming and it feels like flowers are on my mind more than anything else. I try to take more walks, I'm smitten with my neighborhood, and it just feels right.

2015 has been really strange for me so far. It's so foreign working and living with everything wide open. I don't know what a lot of months will look like-- if I'll even be close to making rent-- and it's terrifying. The plan-ful, scaredy cat in me is severely confused.  But if these first two months have taught me anything, it's that it always works out. Even if it's not how I pictured it might.  I like that I'm more conscientious about how I spend money and how I plan my time. Everything feels so intentional. I was meant to be here, in this place, right now. I'm learning to say no to things I don't really need and recognizing the things that add meaning to my life. Like these flowers.

For the first time, I feel like an artist. An artist! Can you believe it?
