Happy April

April is almost like a holiday to me. Back east where I grew up, April is a beautiful green grassy dewy month filled with life springing forth at every turn~ New leaves and flower buds on trees, crocuses popping up, birds tweeting and lightning bugs coming out in the twilight. All of creation waking gently from it’s winter slumber. Tulips, daffodils and snapdragons. Our old egg hunts at Brandywine Creek State Park. A warm breeze gently blowing the curtains. And of course, this being me, I also think of asparagus with hollandaise, minted green pea soup and dutchess potatoes. And sangria. (Yum!) Making homemade ravioli while listening to Andrea Bocelli. Even though I live now in Colorado and April is one of the snowiest months here, I like to think that I can still bring the April I know from the beautiful Delaware valley to our inside cozy home on the front range.

Saturday was our 5th wedding anniversary and I think Tim and I are even happier together today than we were on that glorious snowy day half a decade ago. To celebrate the day, we had a wonderful lunch in the garden room and walk around the lake at the Broadmoor where we became engaged.

I've got to run for now but I hope you like the new layout for spring. Think of it as my blog's new spring dress. I'm still working out the kinks and I will hopefully post more pictures this afternoon.

Happy April Mandie! And Happy Anniversary to you both! it sounds like you had a lovely and very sentimental anniversary celebration. What fun!

I was going to mention the layout but I thought "What if she has had it up for a long time?!?" I am glad to know I am not going nuts! :-)
