Ode to a Spring Weekend

spring sprung
for now
hiking at Highpoint
warm temps and sunny skies
feel the last flakes of snow under our feet

picnic by the lake

soak up the sun
pup seeks shade

amazing views

feel lucky

convertible weather
late afternoon

top down
sip a latte by the lake in our little town

feel content

spring cleaning begun
dead leaves collected

windows wide open
curtains blowing
feel the fresh air

convertible once more
country roads
Rita's Italian Ice

Do you have Ritas?
feel sorry for you

longer days
later sunsets
chops on the grill
seasons go round

feel thankful


  1. Sounds like a good weekend to me. We are in Chicago. Cold here, but at least the sun has decided to come out.

  2. "feel thankful"....amen!! Love your furry child!
    Great pictures and beautiful weekend.
    Blessings and hugs,

  3. LOVE THIS! what a great post. I can see the spring bug has gotten to you and we are only one day in!!!
    Do you know I've never had an Italian Ice? Hmmm . . . I think it might be best just in case I like them!
    Have a wonderful, springy week!

  4. There's a Rita's in Market Square and in JC...who knew JC would grow to a thriving metropolis? :D
    Haven't tried, but it sure looks good!
