around here


things have been busy. lots of spring cleaning
and outside work being done. lots of little repair/maintenance
work being done on the house before we repaint it in a few weeks.

lots of time spent with the kids,
half of whom have been quite sick
so far this spring, but seem to be
feeling much better the last few days.

a little time spent outside doing nothing
more than eating breakfast and lunch at the
patio table or lounging in my sun chair
soaking up a few rays.


i love the time of year when salads
can be a main meal and you don't feel
empty for something warm. i love the
smell of cucumbers and tomatoes,
of lemon and olive oil.

i love the returning desire to
exercise more and take longer walks
and be outdoors. i love the renewed
energy that spring brings just as
winter has nearly consumed it all.


a few photo inspirations from this week:

the colors and tones in this photo make me really happy.

this is beautiful in its simplicity.

i'd like to be here with a good friend to share a cup and to talk a while.

this blue is absolutely perfect.

i'd like to take a walk here, breathing in the gorgeousness.

waking up with this view would be a beautiful start to the day.

capturing light this way never ceases to amaze me.
