>> Spring is shy around here but I like it that way. Because of the cold winters (but certainly not the harshest in the country, by any means) Spring seems to take her time. It makes us all the more grateful whenever she finally does begin her dance here though. I notice the difference in the sunlight first. There's a softness unlike any other time of year. And then comes the rain showers that leave the earth warm, tender and growing. We've been able to get out in it here and there. Whether we're finding rocks, spinning all ridiculous in a field or simply chasing the sun, we're just happy to be outside again. 

>> This quote: “I don't really want more time; I just want enough time. Time to breathe deep and time to see real and time to laugh long, time to give You glory and rest deep and sing joy and just enough time in a day not to feel hounded, pressed, driven, or wild to get it all done-yesterday.”― Ann Voskamp

>> Finding him napping all sweaty and sprawled out. Catching pictures of him asleep is an elusive thing these days. And then our slow mornings together. Lately, I've been profoundly aware of how sacred these season is for him and I. We're together so much, and while it's exhausting, it's beautiful. He won't remember these days like I will, but I hope it lays a foundation of love in the core of his heart.
