Spring Around the House
Spring feels early this year with Sacramento's sunny skies and the early calendar date of Easter. I am not complaining as I soak up some sun and look forward to the new life that the coming of Spring always brings. I am still keeping things simple around the house but giving it a few new touches of life.
The holiday decor is minimal this year but I am still showcasing just a few of my favorite items from past years. The small touch makes me happy without overwhelming the house. Life has been busy the past few weeks so I am keeping things as simple as possible.
Getting ready for Easter, I have started to fill an Easter basket for my husband.
I am having fun playing with some new place mats I picked up at World Market, in preparation for our annual Easter breakfast.
And I have been picking up extra days of watching my nephew while grandma's knee heals. We have been practicing our alphabet a lot.
My office always seems to be messy, but a few pretty corners help keep me happy while I work.
After a few months of a bare front door, a Spring wreath finally adorns it.
And new molding around our door has finally been put up. This has been years in the making and what a difference it has made!
Perhaps my favorite part of these Spring like days is spending hours in the garden, planting new flowers and cleaning up the old. I cannot wait to see everything bloom to life very soon!
