Celebrating Spring

Reading outside is best done under sunny skies and on plush grass.

Since last I posted a few things have happened. 1) April! I couldn’t be more excited for springtime, blooms, and everything new. 2) I’ve finished some books which I hope to review soon. 3) Baseball season has officially started. I’m gearing up for leisure afternoons and evenings at the ballpark, book in hand, my favorite snack (sweet potato fries) to munch on, and looking at the occasional ball sailing into the home run porch.

    • Thank you, Resh! I love spring because it’s the only time Texas actually has color. The rest of the year it is quite ugly. I took these photos at the Dallas Arboretum. Every year they have incredible springtime blooms and it’s like walking around in a flower paradise. 🙂
