golden day.

  The last few days have been really lovely. Warm, bright, so full of sun. Hour after hour spent outside. It's been too long since we've been able to spend much time outside, at least without shivering and scarves and coats...
  Some nights this is what the dinner table looks like. An assortment of odds and ends in bowls. And drawing... My little miss has a favorite word (and pastime) it is, "draw". I hear that word about a hundred times a day. Thank goodness for washable crayons and markers because she likes to draw on everything.

  There are cherry blossoms are everywhere. Last week there were none at all and now, here they are. And in February.  I think we may go looking for a few cherry blossom lined streets tomorrow afternoon. The oldest (not so little, little one) has a sore throat and will stay home tomorrow so hopefully we'll get another sunshine-y day with lots of outside time.


  1. Is that a weeping willow tree? I so miss those from my childhood. The pictures are just beautiful, and what a special way that you captured the way that the earth seems to be waking up to greet spring

  2. yes, it is! I never noticed it until it's little tentacles were hanging in my face as we walked by one day. things are really starting to come to life. such a magical time spring is!
