Cherry blossom season...  
...is my favorite time of year, no question. Man, if I could only bottle that scent. We have a gorgeous tree in our backyard. It's actually crabapple, and has white blossoms, which I like even better than the pink cherry blossoms. It's gorgeous and smells absolutely heavenly. Here's a few pics, two taken from underneath, looking up through the branches, and one showing more of the tree.




In other news, sadly, I'm going to be starting a full-time job in April. I've been self-employed for the last few years and while the flexibility has been amazing, especially with a little one, the money is just not what it needs to be. Also, it's been pretty isolating - I mostly work from home, often in my pj's, and that really does not help my depression. I think I need to be up and about and interacting with other human beings for my mental health. Don't get me wrong, I'm an introvert, but almost no human interaction, and sitting on my butt all day? Not a recipe for a happy Sky.

So wish me luck, guys - I'm hoping that the job will be fun and the people will be nice. I'm going to have a 45 minute train commute each way, so I'm hoping to use some of that time for writing.

What's up with all of you?

And now I'm off to pick up little dude from the babysitter. I'll try to post some new pics of him later.

Gorgeous pics! I lived in DC for 16 weeks in college and my favorite part of that time was when the cherry blossoms bloomed and the tidal basin around the Jefferson Memorial was all decked out and smelled amazing. Love it!

And yay for the full time job. I too start a full time job in about two weeks and have a 45 minute commute (but mine is in the car). So I know that hopeful trepidation well. Hope yours turns out good and the peeps are nice. And yay! for things that bring in more cash.

Thank you honey. Yeah, someday I want to go to D.C. for cherry blossom season. Maybe even Japan someday. *dreams*

Oooh, we're both starting new jobs! *high five* Well, bb, we are going to kick some ass. We'll have to compare notes once we've both started!
