We have three types of friends in life: Friends for a reason, friends for a season, and friends for a lifetime.  Via Lessons Learned in Life

When you’re looking for a bead, and touch something weird between the cushions.

First peony of the season!
These purple flowers are tiny but incredibly fragrant.
I love the subtle touches of color on these.
We now have over a dozen flowers – they exploded into bloom overnight!

“Finding yourself” is not really how it works.  You aren’t a ten-dollar bill in last winter’s coat pocket.  You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are.  “Finding yourself” is actually a return to yourself.  An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.  ~ Emily McDowell


A tribute to my wonderful dad, who passed away a year ago today.

Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love.  It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot.  ll of that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in the hollow part of your chest.  Grief is just love with no place to go.  ~ Jamie Anderson

Our crabapple is in full bloom.
We still have many daffodils, and the tulips are starting to bloom.
First tulips!
And a new Spring bouquet in the kitchen.

A beautiful homemade latte, made with cashew milk. A super special thing for me, since it’s been about six years that I could have coffee or nuts on a regular basis. I made the cashew milk with a device called the Almond Cow.
