It's spring fever.

 That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, 
you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, 
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!

Mark Twain

 Sometimes a post is better written in words. Half sentences at most. Short snippets that convey the overall feel of life at that moment; a paragraph's worth of words seeming superfluous. Is that a poetic way of saying I'm feeling melancholy and uninspired? Perhaps. But when it comes to externalizing one's thoughts and emotions, sometimes a little something is better than nothing. Getting it out is the point; how is less important.







// kiddo's birthday. it was a good day. // legos. // homemade pretzel dogs for breakfast and an attempt at ketchup art. // mexican food for dinner. boy's choice. // a birthday banner put in place while he slept. // shenanigans. // vegan cookies and cream cupcakes made with love. shared with kiddo's class. // 



// mother's day with my two favorite dudes. // lettuce wraps. i could eat them every day. // carrot cake cheesecake. life altering. //



// friends with chickens are awesome. friends who bring fresh eggs to our weekly coffee date? ah-mazing. my friend jill hooks me up and i love her for it. // 


// kiddo's last may day concert. it has been an honor to be a member of this small, sweet school. we will move forward with some great memories. how many kids can say they danced around a maypole? //


// the blooms have been slow to appear this spring. but there are little oases where spring is apparent. mother nature has come alive. and for the first time in months, a small nugget of my soul has awakened. i want to be outside. movement feels more natural. my spirits are noticeably lifted and optimism abounds. //


// windows opened for the first time this year. //

  1. I am totally loving this snippet format. Super fun! Loving the food pics... totally making me salivate. Need the recipe for the vegan cupcakes! Totally hear you about the open doors and windows... ours have been open this week as well and we're loving it. What is it with spring and optimism? I am bouncing all over the place and craving the outdoors. And hate gardening (or so I thought) and now can't stop thinking about planting stuff. Weird. Funny though, I have no desire to blog... Happy birthday kiddo! :-)
