Next Phase in Life

Next Phase in Life

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!  We had such beautiful Spring weather here in northern Utah all weekend long with sunny skies and temperatures in the 60’s.  The only thing that was missing was little kids.  All our kids are older and off living their own lives, so this was the first Easter without kids around.  I must admit it was very difficult and seemed like something was missing.  I guess we’ve entered the next phase in life–empty nesters.

Winter Clean UP

Since the weather was so beautiful, we started on Winter clean up in our yard.  It’s always so fun making plans for Spring and Summer and everything we want to do.  We have a long laundry list of projects we’d like to complete this year.  One of our biggest tasks this time of year is helping our husky get rid of his Winter coat.  Anyone who owns a Siberian husky knows what I’m talking about!  These types of dogs start losing their Winter coat towards the end of Winter, and it’s a process that takes months.  Some of it just starts falling out in clumps, and the rest of it has to be brushed out.  Andy and I filled an entire grocery bag full of his Winter coat on Saturday, but he’s got a lot more to lose.

Keep It Simple

We had one daffodil bloom on Easter Sunday, and Andy picked it for our table.  Often we think we need something elaborate for a table centerpiece, but sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple and minimal.  Our lone daffodil was placed in an apothecary vase for our Easter table.  It was perfect!  I’ve selected some bud vases in the widget below if you’d like to try a similar look.  Apothecary vases are my favorite for single flowers.

Have a great week!
