I'm so sorry I missed yesterday, the first day of spring, but here's what spring means to me!

Dying Easter eggs
I SO want to try this leaf idea!  Click the link below for the DIY tutorial!

Going to Devon's in Huntsville for Easter weekend
It's a wonderful tradition we started sophomore year, I believe.  Junior year, we had hail and we hid in a closet from a tornado for a good while.  It's always an absolute blast complete with resurrection rolls and egg hunts.

Rainy weather, puddles, and the umbrellas, rain boots, and rain slickers that go with them
I took this one two springs ago in front of Huston at Bryan College
(Thanks to Phillip Meznar and Natalie McGee for standing out in the rain for me.)

Flowering dogwood trees!
I just noticed a few minutes ago that ours are blooming.  :)

 Because spring brings warm weather (sometimes very warm weather), my ideas of spring melt very easily with my ideas of summer.  These next ones are evidence of that.

Wearing sandals!  Preferably these ones.
I took this picture of my Chacos with my camera phone last month.  Nothing spectacular besides the shoes themselves.

Reading in the sun (preferably Harry Potter and preferably with Millie)

Smoothies and other delicious and cold drinks
Dad will make us smoothies for breakfast sometimes.  It's always delightful.

Add all those many events that happen in the spring (St. Patrick's Day, graduations, and the many spring events Bryan College had that we got all glammed up for), and there you have it!  I could have put up many, many more pictures of all the plants and flowers that come alive in the spring, because that's what I associate most with the season, but I think you get the picture without the pictures of the crocuses, the tulips, the irises, the and the hyacinths.


  1. Wow, I love that picture of the flowers in the jars! Just a heads up, my centerpieces will look something like that ;)

  2. I love spring!

    And I love that bluebird :)
