Hello, friends (errr....friend?....anyone still there?).  I don't know about you, but with the first glimpse of spring I turn a mental corner.  Everything feels happy and hopeful.  I feel motivated.  I start making plans.  And picking up some spring blooms for inside always feels like it speeds the arrival of the new season. 

For the last two years forsythia branches have been my absolute favorite.  Trader Joe's always seems to have them and they look just like bare branches when you pick them up, but they evetually bloom those vibrant yellow flowers and then even start to sprout leaves.  It's just what I need to get me through the last few days of winter dreariness. 

Of course, some potted tulips never hurt the situation either!

With fresh motivation in hand I'm hoping to freshen things up around here, too, so stay tuned.  Not sure what that means just yet, but we'll see!
