A joyful walk in the rain

pretty trees in the rain

In typical New England fashion, our spring has been cold and rainy. At least it isn’t snowing, right? Every day, I try to get outside and walk, not matter the weather. I just love walking. I was out on a recent rainy and gloomy day, but the day was bright because of the pretty spring […]

spring flowers

Nothing too deep this week, just a pretty picture of the beautiful flowers my dear mother-in-law sent me recently. Even though I still grieve for my mother, I am happy that spring is coming.
