The grass is getting greener, people! Literally :) That is one thing I dislike about non-Florida winters. The brown grass, the bare branches, and the gloomy skies - it sure ain't a pretty sight! But when the weather warms up, and the grass gets greener and the trees bloom brighter, people make their way out to venture into springtime's glorious outdoor activities. We still have a few cold spurts every now and then, but they are enjoyable -- nothin' I can't handle!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately. I should be inspired by this beautiful weather, so I will venture out more with my camera glued around my neck looking like the tourist that I'm not :) And with that will come more blog posts.
Until then, let me fill you in on these past couple weeks. Easter came and went, but not without any excitement. We got a package in the mail filled with Easter goodies, including James' Easter basket from childhood..how fun! And delivered neatly packaged to our front doorstep was Ocean City Boardwalk's Johnson's Caramel Popcorn. Heck yes :) Come the end of next month, I will be able to enjoy some of that fresh on the boardwalk..Heck yes x 2! I refilled the basket Easter morning..hid it..and headed for church.
After that, a beautiful day filled with food, friends, doggies, and fun! We headed to Park Tarven for brunch on Piedmont Park. We went here last year as well and highly suggest that if you are ever in the Atlanta area for Easter, you must go. Do yourself that favor :)
Then, we went from the city to the river, where we spent the remainder of this year's beautiful Easter Sunday.
The doggies ran free and loved every moment!
The following weekend, family came to visit :) Yay! We had a wonderful time - hanging out, eating, manicures/pedicures, catching up, and celebrating at the Weldy/Bacon wedding! Woohoooo!
Even got to hang out with one of our favorite teachers from high school - Ms. Bacon - whom we had together senior year. Beautiful mother-of-the-groom, and very beautiful bride busting a move alongside on her handsome new husband! The wedding was amazing and at an amazing place- Park Tavern! Can't go wrong!
And time with family is always time well spent :)
This spring has proven to be beautiful, and of course it's coming and going quicker than we could imagine. We've got to remember to take a few moments to pause and enjoy all that springtime, this weather, and this not-so-permanent area of residence has to offer us..and I'd say we've been doing a good job at just that :)
