Olympia is a place of beauty. It’s bigger than what we’re used to but still feels like a small community. The road leading to our home is dense with moss-covered trees. It’s a sight we admire every time we pass. Trails begin at the road and twist through the land, which is now a preservation. We finally took a small break from working on our house and explored Watershed park.
I wondered if everything seemed just as incredible to the people jogging through, or if it was the newness that made me appreciate endless green, against a blanket of grey sky. We often forget the way we once felt when everything becomes routine. I hope I’ll always appreciate what’s around me with the same enthusiasm as these first few weeks. This is where we want to be.
