In the poem "in Just" by E. E. Cummings, the world is described as both "mud-luscious" and "puddle-wonderful" as spring arrives. I've always loved the way those adjectives roll off the tongue.While we're definitely experiencing the beginning of winter here in Northern California, this past weekend was as bright and shiny as they come (aside from a bit of morning fog). I'd go so far as to call the last few days spring-like. Add a healthy dose of mud and a puddle or two and you've got yourself a good time.

The hubs and I took the dogs out to the family ranch for some much-needed exercise. I won't lie: it was also a good excuse to get me on the back of the dirt bike (which never, ever happens).

It was absolutely perfect. Days like this past Saturday make me so grateful for the little life we've created.

Here's a smattering of goodness in the form of a video:

Now, I know it's the beginning of a new week (which can always be a downer), but I'm aiming to turn that around. What has you feeling a bit of post-weekend gratitude? Link up in the comment section if you'd like to share.
