Springing Forward

March 22, 2012

Oh, thank goodness…some sunshine finally arrived yesterday! The kids and I headed off to our favourite junk barn where we met up with my friend Monica and her brood. We unearthed a few good treasures and wrangled some good deals, followed by a picnic and ice cream…and the kids even had fun too! Although it looked a lot warmer outside than it actually was (brrr, that wind was mighty cool!), it did feel good to get  at least a few rays of sunshine in contact with my white skin. Since it’s officially now Spring, I thought I share some seasonal visions from around the web…

Tomorrow, I’m off to the big city for a visit with Janis Nicolay (couldn’t come soon enough for this Spring Break smothered mama!) and I hear there’s even more sunshine in the forecast for the weekend, hurray! Brad and I are going to head across the line into Bellingham, WA on Saturday to do some shopping and wandering around near the waterfront with the kids. What are your plans for this first weekend of Spring?

I can’t believe Easter is just around the corner. I love those beautiful eggs…I think I will try my hand at egg dying for the first time this year.

Me too…the dip-dyed eggs are my fave and would be so easy! Hope J is feeling better Ana :)

Yay for Spring inspiration! These are all gorgeous, especially the first one. Thanks for sharing.
I’m having a lovely first weekend of spring soaking up the sun as much as possible!
