It has been a long (very long) cold, cold winter. And as luck would have it, the air warmed and the flowering trees all seemed to take notice just as moms near and far took to social media to post beautiful pics of their children in their blooming best. And I couldn’t help but think of how the long, cold winter suddenly ended with a burst of spring not just on the trees, but on the children! The dormant shrubs of the past season were ready for new life – just like the kids’ wardrobes! Floral dresses! Flirty ruffles! Pastel stripes! Swirly monograms and changing hemlines! Even the laundry piles seem to scream that spring has sprung as cool colors and pretty pastels emerge after winter’s long affair with gray and navy. And for this mom who just loves to marvel at the growing bodies of my little babies, once so small and fragile, now strong and ever-growing, I’m delighted to see their pink skin again, pops of dewy flesh trimmed in ruffles as they reveal their spindly arms and lengthening legs in the season’s loveliest dresses.
Yes, spring has sprung. If not in every corner of the country, then certainly in our most recent feed of Easter's best, spring holidays, vacations to tropical lands, and most certainly in our hearts. Thanks for sharing your Pennymeade moments with us!
