happy easter

I'm so in love with Spring, and for me it begins with Easter and the sightings of the lovely daffodil.

At my parents' home (which was built by my great-great grandparents for my great grandparents as a gift) I was blessed with having a great grandmother who adored the daffodil. She planted over 1000 bulbs behind her yellow farmhouse.

Far from the Big Fish 10,000 bulbs, but nonetheless every spring there is a breathtaking view of yellow from my former bedroom window (now Thurgood's bedroom).

Ahhh Spring - it's delightful how annually it continues to surprise me with it's wonderfulness. It has completely faded from memory how last year, we went through the same ritual of shedding the sweaters, opening the windows - hmmm, spring amnesia, I like you. We've loved the evening walks the recent weather has encouraged and yesterday it dawned on me that soon my little Thurgood will be 3.

Happy Easter to you and your families..and welcome Spring. It is so pleasant to meet you again.

  5. How pretty! 1,000 daffodils must be a sight to behold. And that's so cool about your parent's home.

  6. E -

    Your blog post was the perfect way to end today. So beautiful and inspiring! And the story of your great grandparents and great great grandparents was touching.

    I had the same conversation with a friend the other day! It's like, you remember that spring is beautiful, but you almost forget just how beautiful and truly perfect this time of year is. It's just so much more amazing than what our brains can recreate in our memories! Happy Easter, lovely lady. I hope you and your beautiful Thurgood and husband have a blessed holiday!
