Tucked warmly in our little home, the soft pitter pat of rain has lulled both of my babies to sleep. Outside we see the base of redwoods and thick clouds of green leaves. It is impossible not to feel Northern California encroaching on us. Today’s wet sky reminds us how close we are to meeting the many friends and family who call the Bay Area home.
Officially two months on the road and today is our first day of rain. I’d say we’ve averaged 70 degrees with sun since our snow day in Alamosa. However, this rain is a welcomed break. It slows us down and cleanses the earth around us.
If we are lucky we’ll get some thunder, but only after the babies wake from their naps.
