springtime



The buds are blooming,
the air is warmer,
it's Spring!

I have switched to flip flops and capris, yay!

I just love the sounds and smells of spring- birds singing and fresh flowers blooming :)

And it also means that soccer season is in full swing! Our saturdays are now packed with soccer games, LOVE it!!! We pack the cooler with goodies and drag out our chairs to root our teams on- Caleb's is the "Volt", Jonah's is the "Gators" and Tessa's (which I coach) is the "Redhots"!


What do you love about Spring???


p.s. tomorrow is my birthday (I'm officially *ahem* IN my 30's...) and we have some fun planned (and a peek at my new favorite necklace!) so be sure to come back!

p.s.s. thank you so much for such an amazing response to our new mama's nest necklace! thrilled to see how much you all love it!

Happy in your 30's Birthday! I will be doing the same thing myself this year. Weird to think, isn't it?

Happy Spring!

Spring hasn't blossomed here in Utah yet. I just got home from a quick trip to the OR coast with my hubby. There were daffodils and cherry blossoms everywhere! Love it! I can't wait for spring to come to my home.

I ordered 4 or 5 necklaces last spring. I gave them as gifts. I'm sure you've gotten more orders from those few necklaces because people here loved them! My friend does hair. She wears hers every day and gets a comment daily. She gives them your name all the time. They're beautiful. Just wanted you to know! :) Thanks. And, I love the Mama's nest. I might order myself one for Mother's day!

Ah, spring! It just puts me in a good mood all day long- I even love the rainstorms...

Beautiful blossom photo!

Happy Birthday! Don't forget, you are only as old as you BELIEVE yourself to be! I go on 24 year after year after year. :)

This Spring I am loving that I am another month closer to my husband coming home from a year long deployment. Spring this year means than NEXT Spring we'll be together and able to enjoy Spring as a family. Aside from deployment life, my FAVORITE thing about Spring are the "longer" days. If we'd just STICK with Springing ahead instead of falling back! :)

Ah the 30's I remember them fondly...enjoy your birthday!!!

Happy Birthday, I love being 30 ... 31 to be specific. ;-)

Miss Anne said...

Happiest ALMOST birthday! :) I'll be sure to drop by tomorrow with the day of wishes! :)

I, too, love spring, however, as I type this I think that Oregon is playing tricks on us... we've gone from snowing to rain to sunshine and that's all in the last two hours. crazy!

Love seeing your sweet spring pics :)

**love the new nest necklace, so much!**

I love seeing all the snow gone. I love seeing the grass turn green and the flowers start to pop out from the ground. I love to be able to wash the snowpants and winter coats/boots and pack them away. I love having the ability to open my windows!

Happy Birthday tomorrow. I hope you are spoiled rotten on your special day.

Gee I remember when I turned thirty, I cried, not because I didn't want to turn thirty but because my 20 were so great and I had so much fun, I just could not imagine not being 20 something anymore. I loved my thirties, now that I am 40, still lovn' it....My favorite thing about spring is the flowers , so many flowers everywhere. Love it so..The allergies I can do without. Have a fantastic Birthday!!!

Being a Southerner (Sthn Hemi girl) we're in the other phase.....exchaning our thongs for closed shoes and digging out the cardigans and longer sleeves. But I love it after a hot summer - I don't really enjoy those long hot months.

Loving all of your designs......will definitely be ordering for some spesh birthdays coming up.

Can't wait to see what you have in store for us tomorrow. xxx

I live across from my college campus baseball field so I love to hear the baseball games going on! The noise the bat makes, the music, the cheers, the announcer...I also love the smell of the sun and wearing flip flops! Happy Birthday!!!

This picture is beautiful! Hope you have a very Happy Birthday! 30's are much better than 20's! Well, except for more wiggly parts :)

Beautiful picture! I love Spring, because it is perfect running weather! I'm excited to try out my bike, and for my little girl to play outside. ;) Happy BIRTHDAY!

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

Flip flops are definitely one of the best things about Spring. Especially with a brand new pedi!

Happy Birthday-
The 30's are even better than the 20"s, believe it or not- it's true! 40's are good too! There is some fun to be had at every age. :)

Rosanne said...

I love all your designs! And I love Spring too! The birds chirping is great (but in moderation of course). ;) I'm also 31...and it feels good. So enjoy!
