Happy Spring?!

The equinox is tomorrow and a good bit of the snow has melted.....I'm feeling hopeful that we've turned a corner and that things will start to green up soon.

It's been a "busy" winter in the best way with a quiet work life but lots of fun times with family. In February we escaped to Turks & Caicos with my cousins for some fun in the sun - MUCH needed at that time of year! I've been sewing and crafting up a storm which brings me so much happiness and have also been reading a good bit too.

As the days have started to warm up it's been heavenly to be outside more and I can already see that if Norah has her way we'll barely be inside all summer. One thing living in a cold place makes you appreciate is the changing seasons.

I hope all of you are well and that life is happy - read on for some updates!
