80 degrees! We are suffering the possibility of snow this week. It's so foggy and cold today, it's hard to imagine a warm spring day (which we just had last week!). The weather in Nebraska is always that way and gives us lots to talk about.

This is a lovely post, I know that tug you are speaking of. As I watch a close friend/co-worker getting ready to have her first child in a couple of weeks, I've been thinking back to my first weeks as a mom. And find myself oddly longing for that time, for something I will never again experience. It's nice how time dulls the edges and makes it all seem so lovely. :-)

It's jarring when you have snow Monday a week ago, and 80 degree weather that next Monday! Sorry about the weather forecast in your neck of the woods...

You're right--time does dull the edges, doesn't it?!
