Already Spring?

It may only be March 1st, but the weather as of late has had me thinking that it is March 20th. The sun has been shining more often than not here in Missoula, and my "weekend" did not disappoint. I started both of my days off by sleeping in, and by sleeping in, I mean not rolling out of bed until 8:15am. After mustering up the energy to do that, I somehow managed to make coffee and take a walk along the river with Justin on both days. I find it so rejuvenating to walk with the crisp morning air cooling my skin one moment, only to turn around and bathe in the warmth of the sun the next.

This "weekend" was a weekend of firsts for me this year. Along with my morning walks (with coffee, and Justin) I also rode my bike for the first time this year (both days), hiked up to the top of the M on Mt. Sentinel via the North trail, walked to Kettlehouse brewery with growlers in hand, and enjoyed dinner at Taco Sano. I also got to play with my camera and have decided that I need to carry it with me always. After all, you never know what might be around the next corner.
