Spring is that time of the year when everybody is so tired of winter, so ready for sunny days, so excited to get out of the house. All nature is awakening, and first blooms make their debut. I love all the seasons, but lately, spring feels so magical, so exciting, so renewing. The air is filled with aromas, the sky is high and bright, the sun fills me with energy and desire to live and achieve great things. Long awaited bust of vitamin D for us, Washingtonians. 🙂 And even if the sky is cloudy and rainy, the sun rays peak through, and there it is, a beautiful rainbow. This one was absolutely unbelievably amazing. This is a full double rainbow! My mobile camera couldn’t capture the whole beauty of it. I had to stop my car on the way home, and just capture the best I can at that moment. Can’t stop admiring!
Walks in a park became pleasant once again. And the blooms are just so beautiful. I walk and admire, and snap pictures, and breeze….. I love Spring!
After long rainy winter, the kids are happy to be out and about, exploring.
Beginning of Spring is full of events for us. This year in March my husband and I have celebrated our 14th Wedding Anniversary. Oh my, where did the time go? It all seems like yesterday. He got these gorgeous roses for me from local Safeway store. I had to take a picture of such beauty. These are real!
Then, it was time for Easter. We had a breakfast at home, went to church, and then, had a lunch at my sister’s house. For breakfast I’ve made Berry Parfaits. And my contributions for Easter Lunch were Deviled Eggs, Carrot Salad, Coleslaw, and a delicious Carrot Cake. My Sister prepared a Ham with red currant glaze and Mashed Potatoes.
Easter was followed by my daughter’s birthday celebration. I made a Birthday Cake for home celebration. The other cake was ordered at Safeway for both my daughter and her friend who’s birthdays are just few days apart, so we decided to celebrate together, and have a painting party.
Selfies and egg hunting.
Paining Birthday Party in progress.
Birthday celebration continued…I’m not sure how common is this, but my girls love sushi. They devoured these rolls and were asking for more.
Ready for Spring Break!
I’ve learnt to enjoy and cherish every moment, the life is passing by so fast. The kids are growing up… Its good to stop and admire. Inhale fresh air, and live today, right now, in the moment. Life is beautiful!
