What I'm Loving:
+ Golden, almost buttery, daffodils at the arb! William calls them "crocodills."
+ Walks around the block with Papa that end, exhausted, in snuggles on the couch.
+ A date at Beau Monde (crepes!) with one of my dearest friends.
+ Playing at the "firetruck park" because it's blissfully fenced in. I get to sit down and relax.
+ Making salmon and potatoes for Randy and his girlfriend. Then staying up past my bedtime having fabulous conversation with them!
+ Realizing that Newport is just two weeks away.
+ Totally winging it on an oatmeal raisin recipe. And having them turn out so well I have to eat half the pan!
What are you loving?

I feel like I'm finally coming alive again. The warmth and sunshine pull me out and nourish me. I have a number of Correspondence Booklets to fill and put in the post. Orders to sew and ship. I have birthday decorations to make. And packing to do. Yes, you read that right. Packing. For a two month stint up in Newport, RI. Andrew has a rotation to do up there for May and June, and we get to tag along. Eager little tourists we will be. I'm so excited!
Sending love and sunshine ~

Tulips and daffodils are pushing through the soft, wet earth. Spring is here. I went for a long walk at dusk last night and smelled worms. This is something my mom and I share--our ability to smells worms. It's probably just the ability to smell damp earth. But, it's spring. And utterly delightful!
