Not that I need more signs but here are a few...
I wish I could capture the scent of sheets that have dried in the sun, promising sweet dreams.
Smiling kids, lungs full of fresh air.

We are so excited. Lots of planning and dreaming.
Our new home for potatoes
I was about to give up on my seeds - only lavender has sprouted so far. BUT...this morning we saw Parsley poking through. YEAH!! It is all about the little joys and that is what I am finding makes up beautiful life.

Mr. Tough-guy basketball face
We're ready for spring. I forgot how great it is to have our home extend into the outdoors when the weather is nice. We fill our lungs with fresh air although a bit chilly and feel the sun on our faces. My kids have the scent of spring in their hair. As I squeeze in my kisses, they smell like outside.

This house has cabin fever. We are ready for spring. To make our new home more ours, we've been painting some of the rooms.
Our latest paint makeover, work in progress.
While were watching Parks and Recreation this past Thursday, noticed our new wall color matches Tom's golf pants (can see a bit of green pants in this picture).

My cousin's little girl, Katelyn, is one month old!! I made this Snuggie Wrap Blanket from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones - my review. The fabric used, Alexander Henry's 2D Zoo - primary was repurposed (originally used for my son's bedroom curtains). For this project, I included a lightweight yellow fleece for the lining.
Mom and Katelyn (and Dad too!) are doing great. A welcome addition to our family.

We are seeing the sun and we are happy.
- Planted some seeds indoors - lavender, parsley and chives.
- Ordered some seeds from Seed Savers Exchange - Aunt Molly's Ground Cherries, Strawberry Popcorn and Eggplant.
- Purchased container for potatoes from TJMaxx.
- Getting ready to hit the home improvement stores for supplies for our Square-Foot Gardens.
I haven't had any luck in the past growing poppies.
I dream about poppies - the varieties, colors, textures - I am in love.
