Holidays hold so much meaning. It’s a time to be with all of the ones you love the most, your friends, your family. I know for me, our family has so many traditions that hardly ever change from year to year. We go to the same place. We make the same dish. We have to nap to nurse our food comas. You know, the usual. Easter for my family always was spent at my grandparents house in the county. Easter for me reminds me of my grandma. She would cook up a huge meal, including the best lumpy mashed potatoes around, and she would make these elaborate Easter cakes with coconut flakes on top, decorated with bunnies or whatever else she created. I remember as a kid I would sneak into the laundry room where she hid them, and I’d swipe a finger full of icing before dinner. Those memories make me smile.
I’m all smiles that spring is almost here! Granted it’s still sporadically snowing here in St. Louis. Make it stop! But I see sunshine and blooming trees in our near future my friends. I need to be outside already! Who’s with me? Until then, I am super excited to give you a glimpse at how myself and a great group of my blogging friends are getting ready for the upcoming, fresh new season. I am so happy I get to share these talented ladies and their beautiful spring homes with you!
Other than me, who else is so incredibly ready for Spring? I’m sure I’m in good company. Not that we’ve had a bad winter, because here in Missouri we really haven’t had much snow at all. And naturally I’m saying that with snow in our upcoming forecast for this weekend. Go figure, right!? But seriously, I can’t complain. And the time change! Oh how I love longer days! I am so so excited you guys. I can see week nights being spent in my garage workshop working on projects already! Hurry up Spring!
