spring has sprung

Sunday, March 17, 2013

it's unofficially official: spring is here! well, technically we still have a couple of days to go, but if you're anywhere near me, i'm sure you'd agree - it's here. and it's fabulous!

my favorite tree is budding, and i always get a giddy feeling when this happens. i have no idea what kind of tree it is, but i love watching it blossom each year.

the lantana is also starting to bloom...

we bought flowers to plant yesterday...

and we spent a lot of time working in the yard. i love how the girls set up perfect little scenes like this.

today is the last day of our spring break. we enjoyed our time downtown for sxsw for the early parts of the week, and the girls enjoyed some time with their grandparents, but by thursday, we were way over the big crowds and skinny jeans that invaded austin, and we had to slow things back down to our normal, pokey pace.

we also did some spring cleaning over the break, and i'm happy to report that both girls now have full access to their mini ipads and we recovered a loaned pair of swarovski earrings. spring cleaning = found treasures. everybody wins!

however, i will have to say that my most favorite part of spring break was realizing that even though we have a perfectly long, roomy couch, we tend to end up with all three of us smooshed on the same singular cushion when we settle in for the evening.

and i wouldn't have it any other way!

i hope you're enjoying spring's arrival as much as we are. if you had a spring break, i hope you got to kick your feet up and relax for at least part of the time. and i hope you have a wonderful week!
