Happy Thursday!  Is it just me or does it finally feel like spring is in the air?  With a quick trip to Pittsburgh on Tuesday and Wednesday, this week is literally flying by!  I’m not sure if I’ll be able to pull myself together by tomorrow, but I’m sure going to try!  How’s your week going?

    Yes! Spring is in the air and I couldn’t be happier. It’s been a long-ish winter and I’m glad to get the kids out of the house into fresh, warmer air. Have a great week.

    I am so happy that spring is finally in the air, well except for today which is cold and rainy but I actually got sunburnt on Monday – so summer is on the raise! 🙂 I hope y’all have an amazing weekend!

    Even without travel, my weeks fly by! Especially with warm weather for the long list of gardening tasks and over 125 items tagged for consignment (which I linked up in the linky and here at my name.)
