Happy Spring!!

Happy Spring!!
(for real this time!)
Isnt' this a fantastic picture!!
A fabulous friend of mine is a photographer this is one of her wonderful pictures!!
You can check out her blog.
But, that's not all!!

This is one of the views that I am blessed enough to be able see everytime I get off the freeway to go home. Aren't these flowers amazing? If anyone know what their called, I'd love to know.
We are so truly lucky to have tons and tons of amazing natural wildflowers that cover almost every inch of ground around our homes. Everyday I appreciate my wonderful home and it's beautiful surroundings. As I said, I am truly blessed. I live at the base of a national park and there is another mountain (ok maybe it's a hill, I don't know how tall it is but, it's tall) across the freeway. So basically, my little community is wedged inbetween these two mountains. There is a lake at the bottom of the hill and a horse ranch I get to drive by everyday when I take my kids to school. We also have a wonderful homeowners association that keeps the landscaping in our community looking fantastic. I have always wanted to do a four seasons photo shoot of the main drive up the hill to my house. Hopefully, I have inspired you to look around where you live. You CAN find beauty anywhere.

Enjoy your Spring, it only lasts a little while!!

Oh, those are Bluebonnets. Fields are full of them around here and are so beautiful.

I'm sorry you missed out on the Pay It Forward. It's going around, so I bet you can catch it on another blog.
