firsts of spring

this week meredith and i began our first now you e-course and it is blowing my socks off! we have an amazing group of women who are breaking down walls, and old habits, and seeing themselves with kinder braver eyes. it is only day 3 and my heart is overflowing. so excuse me if i seem distant here for a little while... between everyday life and the energy i need devote to our class, i may be missing a bit over here.

we have been enjoying some real spring these days.
windy kite flying
tulips blooming
green leaves beginning to sprout
some wash on the line
the grass is coming back to life with a tender spring softness
we made our first trek of the season to one of our local ice cream spots. yum.
i can hardly believe may is just around the corner, and 2 more birthdays, one 8! and one 19! then june will roll in and 2 weeks left of school and then summer! spring feels rushed. i want to savor the cherry blossom confetti at our feet, and crab apple trees just beginning to pop. that bluer than blue sky after the rain. the sound of the peepers each night. the good kind of tired that only playing outside brings and the sweet sleep that follows.

hello spring. so happy to see you again.
happy week everyone.
XO
