signs of spring.

Good morning and happy Monday!

Have you been experiencing the lovely weather we flew home to this weekend? There are still little bits of the winter that we haven't left far behind, but tiny hopeful hints of new beginnings are starting to appear.

It reminds me of that Langston Hughes quote: "I stuck my head out the window this morning and spring kissed me bang in the face." It's almost like the buds were opening and unfolding in front of our eyes today -- these moments are so fleeting that it's miraculous to be able to witness it. Trying to breathe it all in while we can...

Here's a springy Monday morning song for you -- one of my all-time favorites.

Florida pics coming soon -- so many to sort through. Tomorrow was supposed to be the day I opened my Etsy shop, but due to some unforeseen circumstances related to my new blog design and some shop inventory that isn't quite done yet, it's pushed back a bit. Hoping for an early April open, though! Then spring will really have sprung at our house.

Hope beautiful and hopeful things are swinging your way today, too! It's good to be home. :)

p.s. looking forward to getting caught up on your blogs -- and comments! -- soon...I'm feeling very out of the loop!


  1. This weekend, it was downright HOT here. I was sweating bullets! Oooh, I'm not ready for summer, ha!

  2. Oh how I love those little shoes! And she's in short sleeves...yep, I'd say it's spring where you are. I'd love if spring kissed - or even punched - me in the face right about now! Glad you're back and can't wait to see pics!

  3. Those shoes are adorable! So glad you made it back safely from your trip - and that you have warm weather to welcome you back, as well.
