It’s no surprise that when spring comes around, my thoughts turn to new life. Winter always seems to last for.e.ver, and I am happy to be free of socks and breathing fresh air again. I remember why I love the midwest. My boys are re-discovering the world around them, amazed by everything that they see. All around me, something new is coming into view.
A bit of my life lately…
Eli discovering ants for the first time [yes, inside the house… sigh]
Veggies starting to grow in my garden. And conversations with my three-year-old about germination and nectar and what makes plants grow. So lovely.
Picking flowers…. even if they are just dandelions.
Teeny tiny baby socks, reminding me of the teeny tiny life that will be joining our family later this summer. I can’t wait to see his sweet little feet.
Buzz cuts. [I can’t handle the cuteness of those cheeks!]
Blooming lilacs in our backyard. It’s one of the few flowers that grows in our yard… because I don’t actually have to do anything to make it grow.
What new life do you see springing up around you?
You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
