It's our spring break this week... and though this year we're having a staycation...
we're out & about grabbing up life's goodness.
Loving this down... go with the flow... getting to do things we never get to do... time together.
Just hoping you're having a sweet week too!

happy friday y'all

if you haven't yet... you still can... just jump in.

it's been a full week... juggling various balls over here...
and i've been at the mercy of the patina too.
it's been feisty......... or should i say... stubborn.
no... it's expected... i just forgot... i guess it's been thAt long.

dig those heels in... extra deep.
grab ahold... i say with both hands.
smile big......... it makes all the difference.

spring itch

feeling, smilingcarissa fox13 Comments

i think i felt i might have felt my first hint of an itch.

i am a lover of winter.... find the cold & all it's bundling up quite fun.
when i see it's on it's way out i want to grab on & hold tight.
silly i know... it'll be around again soon...
but it's like saying goodbye to a friend you know you won't see for a while.
sort of.
a friend is clearly a whole different level... clearly.
but... ya know what i mean.

well... the hubby was outside yesterday cleaning out our pool storage room...
where we keep all our garden pots & all things pool...
when it hit me...
"hey i'm liking the air out here".
as crazy as it sounds i'm convinced i could fEEL spring.
knocking... whispering... waiting right there at my heels.


as much as i love winter...
i love much of what spring brings too.
fish on the grill.
the smell of fresh cut grass.
buzzing bees.
the sun staying out longer so we can play.
fleshly painted toes.
ice cold cocktails.
arts & crafts outside.
pretty potted flowers.
all kinds of bright & fresh veggie salads.
sidewalk chalk doodles.
dinner on the patio.
rain drops. 
 sun on my face.

have you felt the itch?
what are YOU looking forward to this spring?
