Weekend Wanderings


We made a trip to visit family this past weekend.


We did a little shopping and a lot of visiting.


I loved these flowers made of tissues in the storefront. It gave me a little inspiration for planning Nel's baby shower decor. 


The trees are blossoming here, and I can tell spring is right around the corner.

Hello dearest Sheri! Thank you for coming by my blog post today. I am on spring break now and I thought I'd take a minute to create a post in my one-time happy place. It means a lot to me that you'd visit. I hope you are well; I miss seeing you post! Spring is taking its time to come here, but we are still going outside with our winter coats, pruning trees, getting them ready for the warmer days of burgeoning flowers and leaves. Stay well dearest friend!

aspiritofsimplicity said...

Oh I could sit and stare at your beautiful spring pictures all morning. It is 27 degrees here this morning...:( I am so longing for warmth and sunshine. Soon enough though...I hope.

Imogen said...

What a lovely way to spend a weekend, it's always so beautiful to see the start of the spring flowers.

Debby Ray said...

I love those tissue paper flowers too. When I was in high school, I remember making a huge bunch of them, all different sizes and colors...they are so much fun and would be lovely for the baby shower! May you and your families have a blessed Easter weekend!

Spring is late arriving here, but when it does, it will be amazing. so thank you very much for the reminder to keep waiting.
