A New Season
I just love the start of Spring. Spring is my favorite season of the year. As a child I always wished my birthday was in the Spring, I planned to get married in the Spring, and wanted to have my children in the Spring. Of course none of this happened: married July 1 because I was a teacher and had to get married over the break, first baby born June 1st which is technically Spring but is really the Summer in the South, second baby was born on January 23rd which is the dead of Winter, and third baby was born March 6th close to Spring but not quite there. But still April is my favorite month. I love the rain showers, green grass, Easter bunnies and pastels everywhere. It is funny that my home is actually decorated in Jewel colors and I've never felt like it really was mine. Why didn't I decorate in pastels and Flow Blue China? I don't know, I guess I was just wanting a change from my first home. I guess this year I have really wanted this to be a new season in my life. I want to take time to enjoy my children and husband. I want to organize my home. I want to plan my new home. I want to relish being a homemaker and Mama. And I want to be true to myself.
