walk in the woods (and another gif)

When I emerged from my cold
And spring finally emerged from its hiding place as well

the husband and I took the monster out to the park by our house for a walk in the woods.

It was a glorious spring day.

I taught the monster how to walk on a log last summer. The husband, who is much more cautious than I am, does not really like that I taught this.

Signs of spring. Make me a daisy chain?

The elusive yet supportive husband makes an appearance on the blog. He really is very good to me.

And if you're wondering, yes I did refer to my dog as monster. This is truly a term of affection but as a puppy he would make strange almost monster-like noises. Although his real name is Nesby Glasgow Riggs, he often is just called Monster. Or The Monster, if we're feeling formal.

which sometimes we are.

xo, erika

p.s. This is the husband's favorite gif so far because it looks like our dog is swallowed up somehow by the earth.
