Thankful For The Blooms.

There truly is something about spring and all its liveliness that brings my spirit alive, too. Maybe it is the white blossoms lining neighboring homes as I drive to my house, or the sweet seventy-five degree weather. Maybe it is the fact that light still shines through my window at 6:30 p.m. and patio seating at my favorite pizza place is bearable. Maybe it is just the pure changing of seasons and a turn of pace that brings a new energy to core of my being.

Either way, I'm pleased. Spring in all its beautiful glory prompts a smile on my face and cheer in my heart. It really is the small things that produce life & joy & hope.

All this, of sorts, is really just a whole lotta thankful

And boy, am I thankful.


Hope this spring fills you with a sense of hope & renewal. Yet, let's use this hope to drive bold conversations (hence Longfellow quote in photo), purposeful relationships, & the little pep in our step as we walk out our door and into the vast, blooming world.

As they say-- "The world is your oyster". And as I say-- darn right, it is.

Yours truly,


  1. Isn't spring the best? I love it so much. <3
