I love spring. Who doesn't, right? I love the newness of everything. Spring is a perfect time to clean things out, organize, make a new start on something...it feels like a clean slate. It is refreshing. And, although it has been rainy off & on here in southern cal... I feel a new season outside & for me too. :) A happy, new season...
Funny thing is...every winter I love to put a beautiful wreath on my front door. You know, something festive, Christmas-y... I just LOVE a good wreath. For the last 4 years, as Spring arrives and the snow begins to melt (no...just kidding. No snow. I have just always wanted to say that. I live in southern California - it never snows. Usually sun all. the. time.) these two little birds come and make their nest in my wreath. I am not joking. The same little "birdie couple" start building their adorable little condo on my doorstep each year. I am on my third wreath now & we have to be careful when we open our front door. Mama bird's sweet chirping (every day) reminds us that a new season has arrived. :) I mean, LOOK at this cuteness that greets us every day!

Needless to say, the nature around me is truly inspiring. The singing birds, new colorful wildflowers, the green, GREEN grass from the recent rain, the big, puffy clouds - gorgeous. So with just coming from Christy's She Art class (which, by the way, starts up again April 11th) and all the wonderful signs of spring around me - I am feeling a load of inspiration. Birds, flowers, bright colors, bunnies, and butterflies are dancing around in my head. I can't wait to dig in, get messy, & paint.
Are you feeling refreshed or renewed this spring?
I am embracing that feeling with my arms WIDE open! :)
I need it!!
