Spring arrived this morning

I'm very lucky to get off work at 2:00.  I make the school run and then I have
approx. 4 glorious hours  to spend a bit of time pottering along,
noticing the changes in the seasons and finding new reason to be happy. 
I try to enjoy every season for it's beauty...
but after a winter that saw SNOW and ICE and temps in the single digits and
even lower...This Alabama girl is ready for Spring.
After 4 days of grey skies, windy cold rain....
We woke up on this first day of Spring to this:

I am literally full of Spring Happiness!!
pretty flowers blooming everywhere
So much potential to the day
anticipating what is to come...

a blue sky

even the moon didn't want to go in this morning
A friend and I stopped for coffee in the local park before work....
we solved all the world's problems over my banana bread and
her run by Starbucks

so peaceful

even the dandelions look lovely on their green beds

so much beauty everywhere we looked...

I cant even begin to tell you how happy this day has made me!!
