spring!

it’s definitely feeling seasonally correct around here today. the weather channel says it won’t last but we’re ignoring them and basking in the warm sun as if it’s here for good. the flu is finally on its way and I can’t help but be optimistic. there may even be time to salvage some spring/easter plans and projects and then I’m excited to get jumping on those doll patterns.
