A Happy Little Spring Giveaway . . .
Do you feel it? It’s in the increasingly sunny days that warm the usually cold car, or on the arms of the short sleeved shirt wearing kids in lighter weight jackets heading to the bus stop.
Do you see it? It’s on the ends of tree limbs in the form of tiny buds and blossoms. It’s pushing up through the earth and unfurling as tulip leaves.
Do you hear it? It’s in the sound of running water as the last traces of snow melt and make a hasty exit out of the neighborhood. It’s a part of the conversations between birds tossed through the air from tree to tree.
Do you smell it? It’s something noticeable in the breeze drafting through an open window. It covers the children as the come in from running and playing outside in the warmth.
Oh! I can almost taste it, this beautiful thing called Spring. And I sincerely hope you are able to take a moment and enjoy it as much as I am.
I’d love to hear what it is in your little world that’s telling you Spring is near. Leave a comment by Monday at 5pm EST and you will be entered to win the Spring banner pictured above – a little handmade gift to you from me.
And since I’m feeling especially Springy today, a second winner will be drawn to win a set of 36 custom mommy calling cards like those shown in yesterday’s post. Your info, your choice of background photo. And you don't need to be a mom to win!
Happy Spring, dear readers! You are simply the best.
ps. Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you in the comment!
