Spring has Sprung!

It is a beautiful Valentine’s Day!  I planted my flower seeds in their little peat pot homes today.  The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and  I took my first barefoot walk of the year in the yard to take this picture!

I am a barefoot girl through and through. I loved the smushing feel of my feet sinking into the wet spongy lawn this afternoon.  That, perhaps more than anything else, speaks to me of spring on the horizon. 

It is the promise of many months free of the confines of socks and shoes treating myself to pedicures and ice cold Starbucks Frappachinos. 


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. It was beautiful here today also, but a Norther blew in and changed everything about mid-afternoon. Quick change from spring to winter again!

  2. How lovely! I love Spring in the Pacific NW, especially the Orting Valley and Stanwood, where field-after-field are profusely laden with daffodils, hyacinth, tulips and the like.

    We have a dose of Spring here in the Phoenix area too. It took the form of window & shutter washing at my house all weekend. I'm whooped!


  3. It was warm here earlier today but turned too cool for barefoot forays. I'm looking forward to Spring for sure!

  4. I'm envious! Getting to go barefoot already and even having flowers to photograph! Oh what a lovely gift! Hope you had a great Valentine's!
