What a week


 It was really hard to get off of the plane to a snowstorm.
But then I realized that I actually really like big snow storms and thinks it's really exciting.
I am an extreme type of girl- Give me really cold and stormy, or really warm and sunny, and I'm a happy camper. 
So this week has been pretty fun with all the snow and such!



A few days ago we went and looked at places to live and one place we walked into had a sign that said "Beware of the one eyed cat." 
Just kidding. it actually didn't say that. It said "Don't let the cat out."
But, when Devin pointed out that the cat only had one eye, I could not stop laughing. 
Lawrence, the realtor, thought I was pretty crazy for being so entertained and taking pictures of it. 
Of course I sent my family a group text with the pic of it. 
Ash responded: Permawink. 
Dad responded: Goes by the name of lucky. 
and my mom did not respond... Not. Amused.

Devin taught me how to run up an escalator backwards this week. 
It was a really big deal people. 
I was extremely obedient as a child. and it never would have occurred to me to try it.

And yesterday, I wore my marathon shirt to support those involved with the Boston Marathon.
I ran my first marathon 1 year ago this Saturday and it was one of the best days of my life! 
And I grew up being a spectator at all of the marathons and races that my dad ran.
It doesn't matter if you are a spectator or a runner- -marathons are simply THE BEST. 
So much excitement, energy, and joy as people are crossing that finish line. It's one of my favorite things to watch.
It is so hard to imagine that someone could be so evil enough to try to terrorize people during such a happy event.

However, I do not feel afraid or terrorized. and none of us should! 
There is much more good in this world than there is evil. 
Did you see all of those helpers? All of those people running towards the chaos? 
That is the type of thing that restores my faith in humanity after such evil things happen. 
Let's look for the good.

which leads me to my favorite quote of the week:
