What a difference a night makes

Actually, it was two nights in a row . . . one where I was in bed for about 12 hours and the next where I slept pretty well for 10 hours.

I woke up Sunday morning feeling like a new person. Brad and I were laughing and joking with each other like we did so much pre-infertility. In the late morning, we met my sister and her husband for chocolate croissants then went for a walk in a nearby park.

You may remember that I am not much of a winter person. In this park there is a conservatory filled with plants. I have often gone during the summer, but it just never occurred to me to go during the winter. What I have been missing out on! It was such a wonderful respite from the snow and cold. Inside it is warm and humid with a waterfall and pond. Below are some pictures I pulled off of the internet - I tried to get just the ones taken during winter.

Beautiful. Refreshing and Spring-y.

Oh how pretty I wish I had a place like that around here - especially after the 14 inches of snow we just got yesterday.....I need to joke and laugh with my husband - like it was pre infertility - I'm jealous...... glad to hear you are doing so well.

What an oasis during the winter...

What a great idea! We have the Phipps Conservatory here, and I do not go often enough!

That will be a wonderful place to walk the baby next winter when you guys are tired of being inside!

Gorgeous shots and love the serenity they evoke. Makes me ready for spring, too!

Thanks for your comments in my blog, and your words of support.

I saw these pictures and immediately did a double take. We have a park nearby with a similar green house (kept at tropical conditions year round), with a bench that looks just like the one in your picture!

You ARE still in Washington, aren't you?
