Hello Spring Dresses!

Big Sigh of Relief. SIGH. WHEW. Yay! Spring is coming, the weather is warming up, we’re opening up some windows, we are walking around our yard dreaming and planning about planting flowers, shrubs, digging into our yard projects, etc…..ah…all the signs of Spring. I LOVE Spring more than any other time of the year….

The girls have been asking all winter long, “Can we wear our spring dresses and T-shirts now…..?” “Well, yes, sweethearts, you sure can today…. “

Sammi on left….Nicki on right. Ah…look at my herb garden in the background…just calling to me to dig-up, clean-up, and get things going. In my parts of the country, April 15th is THE magic date for planting. If you plant before that date, you’ll be sorrr-reee as we always seem to have one last hard frost a few days before the 15th. But come then, yippee!!

Off to our backyard swing-set. You can’t see it from this angle but I have two lovely Adirondack (sp?) chairs positioned to the left of the play set and I sat there and read my beloved NY Times for hours as they played. Then….we ended-up (all 3 of us) having a picnic snack up in the “treehouse”…..The best of things are always the simplest, aren’t they…..

Another set of terrific photos of your gorgeous girls. I meant to say yesterday that a reason your girls get along so well together is because of your parenting.
