So Much to Say…

And so many pictures to say it with. I have a lot of catching up to do! Spring is springing, I’m freaking out about it, windows are open, doors are wide, things are turning green…if the seasons cause mood swings, may I please welcome you to mania.

But first! Some pictures of the last weeks of winter, of life with the Waltons. Here are some literal snapshots of what we’ve been up to:

Seeing some music…

Blind Pilot

Looking for Spring out frosty windows…

Asher, Mabel, and Louie

Making a lot of breakfasts…

Going to the park and you know, just wearing a hat like Papa…

Looking for the perfect sunset…

Seeing best friends from college and taking a long drink from the well of joy that comes from being with them…

We had to hide in the stairwell under threat of a tornado while in Kentucky. Hilarity, terror, it's all the same.

Hanging out and looking sassy in our jambos (One Walton looks a little sassier in his jambos than the others…)

Enjoying the wonder of waking up to the last snow of the year (and incidentally, pretty much the only significant snow of the year)

Asher's not much for playing in the snow, he just likes to stand around and eat it.

Noting that Louie that might actually be growing before our eyes…

Finding hearts in peppers…

Raging (a fire) on Saturday nights…

And just generally basking in the hum of trying to keep up with the life that we’re living.

Maybe it’s my spring induced mania, but we’re happy right now. We’ve got our hills to climb just like everyone else, but I am trying hard to remember to honor the abundance in our lives by continuing to find ways to say thank you for it, and in saying thank you, I feel happiness.

Oh Spring. You, you, you. You are just too much. Welcome back old friend, let’s roll down the windows and let our hair blow around and get caught up, shall we?

  1. Love the tail-end-of-winter pictures, and the musings about spring’s arrival. So agree. Even though our winter was mild…there is nothing like the thrill of blossoms emerging and the promise of continually warm days. Ahhhh

      • Yes. Probably desperate. But who doesn’t love a warm day with birds singing and all different kinds of spring flowers blooming. Just in my tiny yard right now,,,grape hyacinths, quince, forsythia, redbud, pansies, and hellebores. Plus lots of things nudging their way above ground…just so wonderful. I am totally OK with no more cold weather this year, despite mosquito sitings.
