A little bit of spring~

While things are starting to warm up around these parts and the first signs of spring are apparent in the blooming dogwoods and the daffodils peeking through the ground, mornings and evenings are still a bit on the cool side.

This is the time of year I love to bring a little bit of spring indoors to remind me that it is just around the corner.  So while at Trader Joes the other day, I purchased these beautiful yellow lilies.  Their bright yellow color just screams sunshine.



And, on a side note...


Mom has been left home ALONE!!!

Our youngest flew home for spring break Friday, and she, her sister and her dad are all headed to the airport this morning to fly to Michigan.  They are surprising their 94 year old grandmother with a visit.  She has no idea the girls are coming!!!  Praying they don't give her a heart attack.  Better yet, praying they don't give their dad one (those two can be double trouble when together, LOL).

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
