I’m in the Christmas Spirit today. (Welcome Spring ’11!)

I began this post thinking I would write about the one reason I actually DON’T like Christmas. It’s just too much work! But then when I started looking at all these photos of what’s blooming in my yard…and the WORK it took to have all the flowers blooming this spring… Well, I guess that was […]
