Hot Pink Spring

Now that it's warming up, the trees are budding and all the color is flooding our yard. Another reason I hate to move from here. We haven't yet listed due to work not being finished. Every time my husband finishes another beautiful piece of crown or framing (he just did my closet doors), I pout. When he puts in the walnut inlaid treads (stairs) I think I'm going to cry. I've actually prohibited him from using my favorite ballisters. They are branch shaped iron with interesting leaves and I'm saving them for the next house. Unfortunately, that next house looks like it will be one story, so I'm going to have to get creative.

North Carolina Popsicles

We had a beautiful day today after getting about 8-10" of snow last night. Of course, they called a school "snow day" and Chloe was able to frolic all day long with the neighborhood kids. They made an igloo, a sled course and threw a few snowballs. She came in late this afternoon wet, exhausted and thoroughly happy. I just sat in my chair by the fire all day reading books. Perfect!
