spring come quickly.

Plum blossoms in my backyard

Spring.... I have seen her face a few days since 2012 began but today it's back to gray skies and chilly winds. I am thrilled to see Sunday come when the daylight will last until after 6:30 p.m. Pining for sandals and dresses and a trip to Santa Barbara.

Over the weekend Spring came. The windows in our home were wide open letting a calm breeze come through. I spent Sunday morning cleaning our home and shopping for vintage baby clothes on Etsy. Some time in the studio with the daylight grazing in. Taking my silly scruffy pup for a walk without a sweater. Spring is a time to paint our living room a bright yellow, our kitchen a mint green, and decide on a fantastic wall color for a little boy's nursery. To spend the afternoon at the flea market buying things for our home. To lay outside under the plum trees painting with watercolor. A time for kittens to stalk through wet green grass... to finally start firing up the barbeque. How I do love sitting by a fireplace drinking hot tea as the rains pour down noisily outside, but really, there isn't any season quite like spring.

Spring.... come quickly! We're waiting for your return.


  1. This sounds SO lovely! And that picture has me breathing deeply...I can almost smell those fresh blooms!

    I just did a spring post too...looks like everyone has the fever. =)
