This warm spring weather has me making all the heart eyes at the flowers for sale outside home improvement and grocery stores. I’m normally such a fall and winter person but within days of having Cora Beth in November I was wishing for warmer weather! Being cooped up inside with a newborn can make you a little stir crazy, I just wanted to go to the grocery store without having to dress us both in a million layers!
But now that it’s warmed up Cora Beth and I have been taking lots of walks (they’re my favorite)! I see everyone in our neighborhood planting flowers and tending to their yards. I wish I had a green thumb, oh how I wish. Unfortunately I just help the plants go to be with Jesus faster! Although I did pick up a succulent from Home Depot the other day I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep it alive!
Since I can’t seem to keep real flowers around I thought I’d paint some and share them with y’all! At least I know these won’t die on me! And a sweet little quote at the bottom, live life in full bloom. A springy way of saying live life to the fullest! It’s so surprising (or maybe not) that I’m already experiencing mom guilt! Being a stay at home mom whose husband is deployed I sometimes really need some connection to the outside world but if I’m not careful I let the whole day get away from me! I’m trying to spend less time on my phone and with the tv on and spend more time really interacting and being present with Cora Beth.
Just another reason I’m thankful for the warm weather, we’ll get to make sweet memories going on walks, playing outside and hanging at the pool!
