Hello Spring...and Friends

O the green things growing, the green things growing,
The faint sweet smell of the green things growing!
I should like to live, whether I smile or grieve,
Just to watch the happy life of my green things growing.
- Dinah Maria Mulock Craik 

The sun finally came out, and as I do every spring...I try to remember what it is that I love. Lemonade? Oh yes - I do love you. Good bye hot beverages! Light layers and freckles and sun kissed shoulders - oh yes, I do love all of those. Good bye thick wool and flaky skin. Colorful crafts and sitting outside with incense burning, my yoga mat laid out, wood wind chimes clanking - i love spring. 

I'm on a mission to get crafty again - who knew you could make a fairy skirt out of bath loofahs and artificial flowers? The library told me so and I took it's word on it - squirrel wasn't disappointed. 

The days are longer and warmer offering a little more peace and space to play. Nights don't feel as rushed as they did even two months ago and sometimes, if we are blessed, we can see bits of orange and pink from the sunset peeking over our neighbors houses. 

My littles have all grown leaps and bounds since the last time I visited this space. Brady has gone from being shaggy chic to short and slicked back (hair) and his legs are at least two miles longer. Trinity and I both chopped our hair off to the shoulders and have decided that we want to be musical together - she wants to learn violin and I would love to find a second hand piano. Tristan is still working on learning to read and is doing awesome. He feels insecure with his speech impediment and at first is nervous and says he doesn't know how to "do this" and then he is brave...and he sounds out the letters and I cheer as if he just scored the winning goal and he smiles and is confident. He is such a beautiful soul. My little Finn bug isn't so little anymore. In fact, he's not that much shorter then Tristan but is still very much the baby. Finn will be four in about five weeks and I'm feeling shocked about it as I always do when a one of my little's birthdays are near. 

I've missed all of you here in blog land and now that it's warm and there is life to take pictures of - I will see you again shortly. Hope your evening is full of golden light and sweet smells and love. 


  1. Welcome back! Sounds like things in your world have been good. Happy to hear spring has found you, we are still waiting here. Sadly, it was snowing today, and there is snow in the forecast this weekend. I know it will be here soon, I just wish it would hurry up already :)

    Happy to see you back in your space.

  2. So nice to see you back here. Hope you'll be back often now that the days are longer.:)

  3. Spring is always so motivating, isn't it? xo

  4. Glad to have you back! Looking forward to more posts in the near future!!
