In our family most birthdays are during spring. We only have a couple to celebrate during summer. Those do deserve cute gifts though and that’s the reason I design these pretty floral boxes.
When spring draws closer I feel like using flowers. Any sign of new life sprouting up makes me smile and walk with a little lighter steps. I feel hope that warmers days are just around the corner.
In our family we have a lot of birthdays during spring. From February to April there’s one birthday party after another. I’m not complaining, any excuse to see family is a good one.
Today my sister came to visit with her kids and we went to the park for some snow fun. There’a a hill in the park that the kids used their snow rockets and sledges on. The sun had melted most of the snow and one side of the hill was completely green. But the shadowy side still had some snow and we had a blast.
We came home with red cheeks to eat some Chicken-noodle soup and played some board games as well as Nintendo. We ended the visit with coffee and oatmeal cookies. I feel some real nostalgia whenever I eat oatmeal cookies. My grandmother always used to serve them when we visited her as kids. Such fond memories!
Even thoug the snow is slowly fading away, spring feels far, far away. Winter is my least favorite season and I for one can’t wait for spring and warmer weather. To lessen some of my longing, I’ve started allowing myself to at least design a few things with spring in mind.
