Spring Love

Fall has just about always been my favorite season. I love the changing leaves (even though that happens pretty late here in San Antonio), wearing cute layers, cozy evenings with hot chocolate, forcing Wrigley into his Christmas sweater. But over the last couple of years, Spring has really been giving Fall a run for its money as my favorite season. Warmer evenings, longer days, dinners outside, fresh flowers from our garden, pastel colored shorts, bluebonnets blooming along the side of the highway, Fiesta season, I just can’t get enough of it!

This Spring is extra special because it marks the first time since we graduated from Trinity that Chip is not studying for the CFA, so it’s been a lot of fun getting to share this season for the first time in four years. We’ve already planted some new vegetables and flowers in our garden and so far, they’re all growing pretty well. Chip’s dedicated himself to our grass and it’s slowly getting more and more green and plush, so Wrigley has loved getting some Vitamin D outside and games of frisbee. We recently got some patio furniture from Ikea and I’ve forced kindly asked Chip to eat outside with me as much as possible. It’s wonderful. Spring, please feel free to stick around as long as possible.

Hope you’re all getting wonderful weather, too. If you are, you better be taking advantage of it before summer kicks in and we all run back inside!

    Great pictures of your roses and garden! It’s easy to see why Wrigley enjoys staying outside on these beautiful Spring days.
