The Sun is Shining

I think its safe to say that I no longer want to skip the Spring season. I don't think I have ever been this happy to see or feel the sun heat my skin. The countless days of rain and dark skies was so emotionally draining for me. I don't know how long this beautiful weather will be with us, but right now, in this moment, it feels so good to breathe again.

Sneezing and itching aside, I am actually looking forward to getting outdoors. Being without brightness and color for so long, I find it almost impossible to pass by a flower or plant and not stop to take in its beauty. I want to fill my house with them. A space that is naturally dark needs the life of nature. Emma and I are starting with this beautifully simple bunch of Sunflowers (my favorite flower). A compromise for the fruit tree Emma was eyeballing.


  1. I hear you with the dark gray days. I too am relishing all the spring color and light. Love your sunflowers! Have a wonderful weekend!


  2. Thanks Debra. Loved you new Spring curtains!!

  3. I was enjoying the sun UNTIL it got all silly on me and reached beyond that 75 degree mark. Mother Nature and I are supposed to have this agreement to keep me in nothing higher than 75 degrees, WITH a breeze! I don't know what happened...

  4. LOL! I definitely felt something that was beyond a cool 75. As the side of my face and left arm were on fire in my car, I reminded myself that I really was happy to be burning up, lol.
