~ Letter to Spring ~


Dear Spring,



It's good to see you again. I've missed your warm days and cool evenings. I've missed the scent of freshly cut grass and the glorious breeze swirling the aroma of new blossoms past my nostrils. Your evenings bring more daylight and it is a welcome change from the darkness of winter's.


However, this year you will find me much altered. Last year you saw me go to lots of bridal showers, finalize that oh-so-stressful guest list, start my first full time job, do lots of DIY projects for the wedding, attend to premarital counseling, dream about our honeymoon in the Caribbean, and attempt to adjust to so many life changes all at once. Remember that Spring? Well, now I am happily married. My dreams are no longer of the wedding, but of much bigger things this year.


Where will you find me next year, dear Spring? I look forward to finding out! For now I will simply enjoy the beauty of the changes that you bring - this has long been a favorite season!


I promise to savor every precious day.


Much love,

Jennifer

Beautiful pictures! I also often find myself thinking back and reflecting back on where I was at this moment last year, or years before. Its funny isn't it? I love you and your husband together, you look so happy. I hope I find a marriage that blissful one day. You're truly blessed x

Beautiful pictures!! : ) I can't wait for Spring. We are already having 70-80 degree weather here. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes hot hot summer. I was doing the same thing last Spring. I love reminiscing about that sweet time, but I also can't wait for this Spring/Summer where I won't be wedding crazed!!
