December first was cold and snowy. It feels validating in a strange way to have such pronounced weather and a distinct season to tie my current transition to. While I expect I will grow to miss the even and predictable weather of California’s East Bay, I really appreciate the range and rapid changes of Maine’s weather, particularly in winter. There is comfort in the familiarity of hissing radiators, icy windshields and condensation on the kitchen windows.
My name is Emily and I live in Portland, Maine, making jewelry, wandering on beaches, collecting rocks and reading books. I love sharing my interests and inspirations here on my blog.
