I can’t wait to box up those winter coats, chunky sweaters, and long johns pretty soon here. Oh wait, I don’t wear long johns, but if I did, those would get boxed up… anyhoo, here’s some pretty Spring inspired images that have put a smile on my face this week!

    I love that wedding dress (and the post)! I love your blog, Sandy! So pretty and useful! You’ve inspired me to get back into cooking and writing :) I’m actually going to try out your mochi recipe today– I didn’t realize how simple the ingredient list was!

    Yay!!! Spring! By the way you just solved a mystery to me about what those beautiful blossoms are (blireiana plum trees)… seriously I’ve always known they weren’t sakura but now I know they’re plum blossoms! Thanks!
