Can you even believe the look on Kiki's face here?
It says everything.
Sunshine, birds singing, the tender beginnings of leaves....
...pastel skies and a haze of green on the fields.
We saw butterflies, frogs laying eggs, and even scared a few wild pheasants, which in turn scared the daylights out of me...they're really loud and dramatic when startled.
The warm air and sunshine renew my being.
When spring begins, I inevitably feel taken by surprise; I think there is always a part of me who feels that this time, winter will never end.
But eventually, to my relief, it does.
Here at home I've been clearing off of the balcony and doing some major spring cleaning. I've become pretty radical when it comes to throwing things away; I used to turn things over in my hand and wonder if I should get rid of them. Now I am militant, and fill whole garbage bags with things. I have yet to throw away something and then regret it afterwards.
A big motivation for getting our home in tip top shape is that the real estate agent will be coming by once in a while with people interested in renting our apartment once we move out in October...yes, that's right, we signed the papers and will be moving this fall!
I just loved the way the kitchen and living room looked this sun-soaked morning:
fruits and flowers on the kitchen island
kiki napping in the sun by the dining table
anemones always remind me of polkadots...i love them!
We are hoping to find people who will buy our kitchen from us so we can start fresh in the new apartment. Can you imagine how excited I am to design our new home?
I hope that spring is warming your face, too, wherever you are.
