celebrations of spring


After the slow months of Winter, morning walks through almost empty city streets and a sun that sets before dinner, the last few weeks of Spring have been nothing short of exhilarating. I find myself smiling a silly amount of the time and practically skipping along as we welcome our new Spring rhythm. We head out of the house early, find ourselves at the book store one morning, the Science Center the next. We stop by the playground and run some errands on the way home, picking up something fresh for dinner. Our waterfront town is bustling now with neighbors and visitors.


On top of all that, there are the many springtime gatherings with family and friends. We celebrate another turn around the sun for Fiona and a different holiday with each side of the family. Oh yes, it is Spring, and life feels lighter, brighter and full of possibility.
