Newness~



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

Margaret Atwood


I love this time of year!  Everything is so fresh and new.  The grass has greened after a long winter nap, the flowers are in full bloom, and the birds are singing up a storm each morning!  I can't wait to get out and play in the dirt.  We plan to make a few changes to our backyard this year, and I can't wait.


Sorry I've been MIA, we just got back from the beach...a little Spring Break getaway.  Just what we all needed!  Now we are all refreshed, a little sunburned (despite wearing sunscreen!), but ready to tackle several projects that had been left on the back burner.

And, I cannot believe my BABY will graduate in 6 weeks!!  Where did the time go?  We are so very proud of her.  She is super excited about heading off to college in the fall. 

I hope everyone had a Blessed Easter with their loved ones, and is enjoying the newness of life!
