spring is here


“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...” 
― Frances Hodgson Burnett

How do you describe a rain storm that makes you feel alive?  
The sounds and smells and gushes of cool wind that enter the home are inviting and welcome.  
I never longed for Spring as a child, but as an adult I find myself soothed and revived by the season.
And as of late, watching a plant grow has become one of my favorite things. 

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” 
- Margaret Atwood

The "tickle me" plant seeds I bought online last week for my boys arrived today.  I hope my green thumb continues to grow.  I want my boys to love planting like I do, and tomorrow we're making a special trip to Lowe's to pick up even more seeds for sowing. 

Here's to new hobbies, new loves and a good thunder storm that fills your house with life.

  1. I couldn't agree with you more. Spring used to be my least favorite season...now that I'm a mama, I see lots of beauty in store.
