More about sunshine....

It can't be said enough...the spring sunshine is making us all smile. I was driving along the other day, and my bangles were dancing in the light. Thanks to my handy easy macro iPhone lense, I was able to capture this shot. And it made me so happy! It's always so good when a shot captures a moment exactly as it seemed to me when it was happening. It's the little things, you guys. The little things.

I also have to tell you about this tree. Because I drive by it almost every day. There is the most random branch growing straight up out of the top...a misfit branch. I thought maybe, as the buds started to appear, the crazy branch would fall off...but it's still hanging in there, catching the sunlight and showing off like it belongs!!

We had a really fun weekend. Dinner with the kids Friday night - all of us together celebrating some birthdays. Saturday night we went out with good friends, and Sunday we did some serious organize-the-garage-spring-cleaning! The skies were blue and I think we hit 60 degrees! The day ended with a perfect golden hour on the deck. Robins chirping. Steak on the grill. Just me and my guy. It felt just perfect!

Happy Monday Everyone!
