Happy Wednesday, Happy Spring!

Are you as excited about the end of winter
and the start of Spring as I am?
 
Yes?
  I thought so!
 
 
Even though we continue to have unseasonably cold temps,
 just knowing that it is now spring has put a spring in my step! 
It makes me so very happy to have winter over with --
 bye bye cold weather!
 
And do you know what else makes me happy?
Besides chocolate, of course?
 
My sweet girl  -- my favorite part of the day is picking her up from school!
 
And I'm sorry to gush -- but I love these photos of us together!
 
 
 
I'm one of those slacker Moms who generally avoids
 being in photos for a million different reasons:
  my hair is too frizzy, I look tired,
 the botox has worn off, I forgot to put lipstick on, etc. etc. etc.
 
So, when a local photography studio said they were looking for models
 for a mother/daughter photo shoot for a charitable event they are doing
in April, I jumped at the chance!
 
I know how sweet it will be someday for
 us to have these photos. 
 Actually, it really made me miss my Mom when I saw them. 
I know that she would love them as much as I do.
 
 
So, the start of spring, my sweet Maddy and these lovely photos are all
making me feel very good today. 
What about you? :)

I can imagine you do miss your mom a great deal. These are precious photos of the two of you. Welcome spring!

PS. We had another snow storm yesterday in our area. We're definitely ready for all things green!

Beautiful pictures of beautiful ladies! I know your mom would love these photos. :)

My beautiful red amaryllis that you gave me is blooming behind the kitchen sink and making me very happy today. It's nice to have a pretty flower to look at instead of all of the brown outside. Hooray for spring on the horizon!

What beautiful pictures, your daughter will love these when she's older. My daughter will be going off to college in the fall and seeing these makes me realize that I better schedule a family portrait before it's too late. BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog to welcome me back after a lonnnnggg break. :)
