Spring Awakening

Spring makes me want to fling open every door and window to let the fresh air inside.  It makes me want to bring the outdoors in and buy flowers everyday.  Most of all, it makes me want to be outside as much as possible.  Well, except when it’s cold and rainy like today but I’ll definitely be out again tomorrow.  Happy Spring!
April hath put a spirit of youth in everything. – William Shakespeare

    Agree with the first comment – one of the prettiest posts and perfect antidote for today’s rainy gloom!

    Congratulations on being featured today in the inagural issue of TRADhome! I was excited to see you quoted in the ’10 Things My Mother Told Me…” feature. Sounds like your Mother had some great ideas and advice!

    These were such beautiful, peaceful images Heather! I especially loved the ones with the lanterns – I am partial to those! And congratulations on being included in Traditional Home – well deserved.
