It's no surprise that spring takes it's sweet time coming to the PNW. Every year I like to act indignant and shocked that it's still raining in March (and now into April) because that's my duty about living here. One thing I've learned lately is that progress is not linear. Relationships aren't linear.
I have to stop myself from getting caught up in the latest algorithms and trends..and don't get me wrong, I LOVE watching what's newest and what's popular, but I realize for myself that if I get too swept away in that, I miss opportunities.
Not every day ends in a beautiful sunset (but can it tho, cause really PNW, c'mon). Every relationship evolves over time. It grows, it changes, it molds and it sacrifices. These two have known each other since middle school, all the way back to student counsel days where asking for a piece of tape was a pick up line. I was busy rocking sweater vests and braces, and they were already cultivating a life long love.
No, it wasn't sunny. It was cold, rainy, windy and everything we've grown to know about early "spring" here, but it was perfect.
