Springtime + a GIVEAWAY!!!


{a sampling of the spring blooms in our backyard}

Springtime is such a wonderful season, isn't it? For me, it's always felt like a time for new beginnings, a sense of renewal is in the air and I feel a freshness in my life. I just love it!

I also love to walk around our backyard in the late afternoons {this is when we typically get our gulf coast breeze blowing in and it feels wonderful outside}. I've enjoyed taking pictures this week of all the blooms in our yard in the late afternoon sun. Above are just a few that I captured.

The other evening, the Hubby turned on our sprinklers...as they began to spray water all across our lawn, we began to chit-chat about our day as I was snapping some pictures of the flowers and all of a sudden, we heard this loud giggling and laughter coming from across the yard. When we turned around to see what was going on, this is what we saw...



Someone had decided to pull off his shorts and tennis shoes and take a run through the water.



Man this kid enjoys life!!. I love this so much about him. I pray that he learns from us as much we continue to learn from him each and every day. ;-)





I was sooooo happy I had my camera outside with me to capture this fun and sweet memory with our son.

***********************************************
And speaking of capturing memories...I'm super excited to tell you about my SPRING GIVEAWAY!!!!

If you haven't heard of Project Life, you really should go here and check out Becky Higgins' website. I first learned about her unique and simplified approach to preserving special memories from a fellow blogger friend. It is a sophisticated and easy way to combine simple journaling with your photographs.

Needless to say....I fell in love with Project Life after learning more about it.

I ordered my first Project Life "Amber" kit back in January. I am LOVING it--most especially though how simple it is to use.

Here is Becky Higgins (the creator) explaining a bit more about Project Life :

  26. Here in Missouri, we had a visit from "Old Man Winter" this weekend. 7 inches of snow fell in our area. My daughter "tipped" me off on Tip Junkie and while looking around I happened to come across this giveaway. I appreciate the fact that you are offering this to your readers.
