Springtime Things

Besides Christmas, spring is my favorite time of year in Fairhope. One of the main reasons (other than warmer temperatures of course) is the flowers.

Every street corner, light post, yard, sidewalk and even garbage can is adorned with blooms right now and I just cannot get enough. All of this color everywhere I look just makes me HAPPY!

You know what else made me happy? Mrs. Vickie {Aaron's mom} and her mom "Pop" and sister "Aunt Sue" came to visit during the Fairhope Arts and Crafts festival.

My two favorite booths were the one above by my talented friend Carolyn Hailey and the one below was an artist in Mississippi. Once again, color just does wonders for me.

We shopped, talked, laughed, ate and shopped some more. All of our favorite things to do... it was such a fun weekend.

Aaron has gotten to be really good friends with his calculus teacher over the past couple of years {they've spent a LOT of time together} and he sends us eggs from his chicken coop from time to time. I honestly think they taste better than store bought... and of course look prettier!

One of my absolute favorite flavor combinations is orange and chocolate. This little snack of toast, nutella and cutie segments is my fave.

I think the weather has finally decided to STAY warm. It was a beautiful weekend at the beach with Court for her spring break... I took my own "spring break" too!

We successfully evened out our farmers tans {hers from coaching soccer and mine from cycling}, ate some amazing royal red shrimp {compliments of her daddy}, watched a horribly depressing movie {August: Osage County} and walked and talked on the beach.

Aaron and I have had a LOT going on this spring {as evidenced by my lack of posts}... all good {and hard} things... so I'll share more in the next post. Until then readers!
