I'm headed off soon for a weekend trip to Mt. Rainier with my family. Last year, the snows had hardly melted at all, and there were almost no wildflowers. Though we've had some unbearably hot days this week (with record-breaking highs!) and a little cooling snow would be nice, I'm hoping that this year the snow has melted enough to see some mountain blossoms. And I am so happy--the fact that we secured our apartment yesterday means that I can go on this vacation with a thankful and more settled state of mind. Hooray!
