I’m really too busy to be posting, but I couldn’t not share this with you. I spent the day with my mom yesterday since it was her birthday, on our way into the restaurant for lunch, she pointed out these beautiful little flowers with honeybees buzzing around. I was so stinkin’ excited! This winter has seemed to last forever, even though it’s been relatively mild. I just love spring and summer and I could have just laid down in those flowers all day. It was about 60 degrees and sunny. What a lovely day.

Life is moving along at lightning pace, but I’ve gotten a better grip on a work/home life balance. I’m looking forward to the month of April when (fingers crossed) things should slow down a bit.

Baby Elam (now 7 months old) cut his first tooth on my birthday a couple weeks ago. It made me crazy. Little Ezra (3 years old) is potty trained and says the wildest things. I’m so blessed. My husband is a sweety, too. 😉

Enjoy the weekend, wherever you are and whatever you do!

Thanks to all of you who liked my blog yesterday! Since I got more response from my photography than my writing, I thought, “Why not give them what they like?” So, here are some pictures of flowers I’ve taken. These are probably more appropriate for spring, but they are so bright and colorful that they’ll work any time of the year.

Personally, my favorites are the poppies. Aren’t they the most fun flower? According to Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail”, maybe not…

What’s your favorite? It doesn’t have to be pictured here.
