Hello Spring

Just a little more than a week after moving in to our new-to-us home, we took a break.

We left behind the still weird smells, patched spots, the very beginnings of changes, and a basement loaded with things we miss on a daily basis.

We headed off in the car and stayed at one of my favorite hotels.

Met up with my family who recently came across new old pictures that posed even more questions that no one can answer.

Celebrated a birthday outdoors – the first alfresco meal of the year.

The day was warm enough to stay out into the night.

Broke up the drive on the way home with a stay at another well-liked hotel.

And arrived home to find that the tree that we suspected to be a Magnolia, was one.

I was a little sad I missed the unfurling, but new surprises are coming up in the yard daily.

I took some travel knitting along, but didn’t pick it up.

Instead, I mulled over colors for our walls.
