Spring's a knockin...

Most people that read this blog the season of spring is in full swing...The sun is out, flowers are blooming, birds chirping, vivid blue skies, flip flops, tank tops (hopefully female only), and maybe an occasional sneeze due to the pollen floating around. However, here in the rockies we're struggling to see signs of spring. With the large snow storm we had on Thursday (1.5 inches) my hopes and dreams of the warm spring drifted away with each snowflake that fell. Yes, maybe I am being a little dramatic but I am ready to frolic around in my flip flops and tank tops and flowing spring skirts! The hope of spring is definitely in the air...with a few buds popping out here and there, lawn mowers humming, and the soundtrack of the ice cream man circling my neighborhood we can only be hopeful.

Along with the flowers and green grass weddings are in full swing as well! Last weekend we headed out Chicago to see Erin & Todd tie the knot! Nat was one of Todd's groomsmen and I was along for the ride. We both had an absolute blast, the wedding and reception were super fun and we had fun hanging out with old and new friends! We have 2 more weddings this month and we are on pause until October. Unfortunately, we are also missing 2 weddings...ahhh love is in the air! Congrats to Todd and Erin!!

I decided to make a collage of the beautiful daffodils that are blooming in our front yard. It was too hard to just pick one! The bulbs were a housewarming gift from Bill & Marcia...we have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the spring daffodils!

The other day I decided to treat myself and buy a trial tea bag of jasmine green tea...the tea was pretty good, but the process of steeping was the best. It was delicately sewn into a little ball and after 5 minutes of steeping the ball of green tea slowly opened to reveal a jasmine bud...ohhh it smelled heavenly! Jasmine has to be one of my favorite scents. NE ways this has really nothing to do with the rest of the blog, but I wanted to show you that stopping into one of those fancy tea shops can turn out to be kind of fun!

I wish Aunt Marcia would send me some daffodils...WOW, but then again, I would want you and Nat here to show me how the pro's plant them...they are gorgeous! I know you and Nat have been anxiously awaiting their appearance....love them!!

Love you forever,

IMO, guys look fantastic in tank tops! Especially if they're really tight around the blubber belly.

I love spring too! Unfortunately I think it's going to be gone all too soon...and be HOT!!! I love all the pictures (as always), especially the wedding pic...it looks like it's an antique!
