Spring times, good times

Yesterday was the loveliest of days. One of my dearest friends Adie joined Henry and me for a downtown stroll that ended in an impromptu tea time on a picnic blanket under a large shade tree.  As we sat there, talking about this and talking about that, I was reminded yet again of how lucky I am to live where we live. As the sun shined down through the just-green branches, and the breeze lifted the edges of our blanket, I looked around and felt so grateful for this day, my friendship with Adie, and for the opportunity to be surrounded by such beauty. Henry lounged and laughed and stretched out, the sun warmed our faces, and our iced teas dwindled away. It was seriously such an amazing afternoon. I hope our spring is filled with a million more days like this in our little town, and I hope that wherever you are, spring is at least starting to show its face a little more.

Happy Friday!

  4. Definitely a great way to spend the day. Spring is such a beautiful time. As much as I love fall; spring is just as amazing to me.

    Oh and I just love Henry's little raccoon shirt.

    Your dress is amazing as well. If you don't mind me asking; where did you purchase it from?

  5. What a gorgeous day! I would love to be in Arizona right now. It's still a bit chilly and gray up here in Utah.

    And Henry is adorable as usual : ) And getting so grown up!

  6. Ahh I am SO jealous. Up here in Northern Illinois it hit about 39 degrees yesterday, and I was so mad! Your pictures are giving me hope for warmer weather <3

    I also had a question, I was looking through your Flickr and fell in love with this dress! Where did you get it from?
