Spring is Here, It is!

It really is! I saw little lavender blooms on my creeping phlox, my clemantis has new shoots, and it’s my oldest sons birthday tomorrow. These things all tell me that spring is here.
My excitement runs high today as I bake a yummy chocolate cake in honor of his special day, because my boy is coming home to celebrate and bringing my new daughter in law! So mom has been cleaning, cooking, and wrapping presents. Last year he signed up to join the army on his birthday, and I really did not dare to hope that he would be home to celebrate it this year, so this is a true blessing. Enjoy the sun, while I enjoy my son:-)
This page was done in my moleskine with my new BIG Pitt Brush Pens. They are fabulous!!! And absolutely do not bleed through, amazing.

I'll be off shopping online before ya know it…and I promise you, I'm telling the hubby that it's all your fault. LOLGorgeous piece, even if you have tempted me into purchases. lolPeace & Love,~Barb~

  9. Pam I know how excited you are!!Enjoy the precious time with your son and daughter-in-law. It’s an amazing thing to watch your family grow. The cake looks fabulous!!!

  10. I wish Spring was here but it really isn’t where I am.*sigh*There’s soo much snow and ice that I’m sure it won’t melt until June.

  11. I just came indoors after working on some garden clean=up. I just have a few perennials starting to peak through where I disturbed the dead foilage. So I'm feeling a little jealous. But yesterday I heard the song of a true harbinger of spring: the red-winged blackbird. I love their music.I'm so happy for your gift of having your son & DIL home for his birthday.I've been eyeing those markers. I think I need to make myself earn them as a reward for getting my art framed. Not my favorite part of the process.

  12. I am so happy for you Pam!!what a wonderful gift for you to have your son back home on his birthday, and with the newest member of your family:-)Enjoy this wonderful time,that cake sure looks good!

  13. Good for you, sweetie…I can feel your joy across cyberspace and see your smile :)Have a wonderful time celebrating with your son and daughter-in-law.
