Lately I’ve been head over heels in love with all the signs of spring! Everything from the weather to the sunshine to the trees and the flowers and the grainy yellow pollen on my computer screen as I sit and type outside. Everything about this time of year makes me feel alive: not having to bundle up for my morning runs, wearing jorts and sneakers with out socks, sitting at a table under a big umbrella sipping iced coffee and eating a vegan cookie. There’s something in the air and on the breeze that makes everything more beautiful in spring time…
So for today’s post, I’m giving you some images of Spring, taken with thoughtfulness and as a visual tribute to the season.
Olive is obsessed with our market basket! Every week before and/or after we go to the Far Mar, she climbs in and around it sniffing and licking at our veggies. Such a sweet little snuggle bug…
She fell completely in love with our bag of spinach… takes after her mom and loves the green what can I say?
Olive’s beloved bag of fresh Far Mar spinach.
The rest of the basket was just as beautiful. There’s something really springy about a basket full of fresh green things.
I’ve also seized the opportunity to dry all of our clothes outside in the warm spring air. We were lucky enough to have a mild winter, so I was able to do this for most of the cooler months, but there’s something about the smell of spring in your clothes…
Drying out the clothes pins after a spring shower! They got all soggy, as did the clothes on the line!
Spring also has me inspired in the hand made department as I dream of things to wear and create:

I’m not the only one who loves craft time…
The warm weather also has me gearing up for warm weather garb i.e. JORTS!

And this little fellah hung out with me all through my German class yesterday:
Adorable little inch worm!
