|It was only his 32nd, but we accidentally picked up the wrong candles. Hope 33 is a good year since he'll celebrate it twice now.|
|The verdict? Whipahol is better than cake!|
|Even Olivia got in on the action.|
After a great evening/morning, the first day of daylight savings time brought not only an extra hour of sunlight, but here, it was a gorgeously warm extra hour of sunlight! Though I was still a touch fatigued from being a rock star the night before, the spring preview that was all around was enough to get me up off the couch and outside. The sunny, seventy-five degree day had me, the poster child for having cold shoulders (even in the tropics), outside in a tank top sans any type of sweater or shrug - it was amazing! Even more amazing were all of the flowers that have begun to bloom along with the extra sunshine. A neighbor's tree was already in full bloom, and I would be cheating you if I didn't share the stunning pictures. A minimum of 5 people stopped in front of it just to admire it in the short time I was outside.
Isn't that gorgeous? It really makes me look forward to our Lady Banks rose blooming over the next few weeks and everything around us coming back to life; gotta relish in the small things sometimes. Anyway, I don't think I could have asked for anything more inspiring this past weekend than good times, warm weather, AND an extra hour of daylight ... though, having a freshly groomed yard certainly doesn't hurt. Thankfully, springing forward this year really turned out to be so much more than just a change in the clocks.
