This post will be all over the place, and that's how it is sometimes in our everyday lives, isn't it?
We had our third snowfall since I moved to the mountains, and it was a big one. I think Spring comes a bit later here, but I don't mind, as I want to experience each season to the fullest and see everything that comes with it.
The neighbor's house across the street has red lights hanging on the back porch area of their house. At first I thought it was just for Christmas, but it's already March, so maybe they leave them up all the time. It looks really cool looking out the window very early when it's still dark outside.
I loved all the comments shared on my kitchen window post, and was surprised and happy to hear that so many of you had kitchen windows too. Out of all the houses I lived in, I only remember one or two houses having them. Here is a picture of my kitchen window when it's snowing outside.
I will forever remember my dear friend, Mea, who passed away. Spring always reminds me of her, as her birthday is the first day of Spring. This is a picture of me and her at Starbuck's. She's making a face, but that's just her, a lighthearted gal. I miss you, Mea.
I am a minimalist when it comes to decorating, and I'm not really a pastel kind of person, so most of my Easter decor is purple. Although, I do have a few light colored things I put out. This year, I put my yoga bunnies on the mantel. They crack me up.
A lovely picture given to me by Kim at Daisy Cottage.
This is my favorite Easter item.
My niece, Katie, gave this to me, and I have kept it all these years. It came in a gold decorative box. She said that the dark rich colors reminded her of me.
I need to get more candles, I'm running out. I haven't been out shopping in a very long time.
My dear blog friend used to make lovely, creative tags. She sent me many tags in the mail, and this was one of them. I placed it in my purple jewel frame. She doesn't blog anymore, but she is such a creative artistic person.
My playful area. I still have all my children's books and some of the Easter decorations when they were small. Little by little, I will give them all to them, but when I'm ready. ; )
My neighbor, Lisa, asked me if I wanted a loaf of sourdough bread that she got from Costco. And of course I said, "sure!" It was really good, but it doesn't compare to Renecke's homemade sourdough bread. Oh, how I miss his fresh bread. It was incredible with butter and honey.
My little leprechauns.

I recently got an e-mail from a friend asking me how I'm doing. I haven't heard from her in a long time, but she's always been a dear friend of the family. I was so happy when she said she was going to write me a letter and tell me what's been going on with her and her family. We don't usually get notes or letters in the mail any more, so this came as a pleasant surprise, and I appreciate her taking the time to write me a letter. I look forward to reading it. Have a very good week, friends, and I hope you are doing well this Easter season.
