A spring in my step

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.  ~Charles Dickens

This is definitely how March has felt this year, but after a couple of days of sunshine and blue skies I am finally "feeling" SPriNg!!

In conjunction with my Valentine decor post, I thought I would continue with that and show you the changes that I made for spring...

Since this yarn wreath took so much pain, sweat, and tears, I decided to
just pull off the red flowers and make some yellow ones as well as add some new ribbon.

The chalkboard received a new banner and from that I decided to go with a yellow, grey, and turquoise theme for any spring decorating I would do...

Love free printables and I thought this was fitting for spring.

Did some rearranging on my kitchen shelves just so I could add that chickadee bowl...

The Valentine tree has become a spring tree now...

My sweet husband bought me some tulips (favorite flower) and they are yellow - Score! ;)

Used a birthday gift card to get this adorable welcome mat at Walmart.
Aren't those birds adorable?

My favorite garbage find, got a fresh coat of paint and a new ribbon, making
it look so much better!

Happy Spring!!

Nicole's Birthday Video

And here is the video clip promised in the last post.   Nicole and I enjoyed celebrating her birthday at some of our favorite spots in downtown Chicago.

Nicole's Birthday

On this day, my dear Nicole had her first birthday with me as a married couple.  

We celebrated by spending an evening in Chicago (our favorite city) and hopefully I will be posting a short video soon of some of the places we visited. :)

I have to say that after 4 and a half months with this wonderful lady, life couldn't be better and she blesses me every day with her cheerful spirit, hard work and wonderful thoughtfulness.

Her godly mentality and sweet spirit challenges me to be a better person every day and I love her with all my heart.  I can't wait to spend many more birthdays with her as my wife.

Thank you for being such a virtuous woman Nicole.   I love you, forever and always!

Snow Day!

After a whole year of almost no snow, we didn't quite know how to handle all this white stuff!
 We just had to go outside and play in it. :)

 My beautiful bride, making the snow look good!

Not very intimidating, but awfully cute! ;)

 The snow was so perfect for packing, we had Mr. Leroy built in short order.

I tried getting him to shovel, but he was better at leaning on it than using it.

Hope you enjoyed the abundant snow today as much as we did!

Cantigny Park:Naperville, IL

I came across these photos from our honeymoon and realized that I had never posted them.
Cantigny Park was beautiful in the fall and Jack and I dream of shooting a wedding there someday!

{Linking up to Mosaic Monday, go over here to view more mosaics}

This photograph was just begging to be made into a scripture print and I chose this verse in honor of a family friend who is battling her second round of cancer.
