I'm craving...

I'm craving ....

Oh.  Well that too... who couldn't use a little Katie time?
...but what I meant to say was ... DIRT!!  

And spring!!  Which means bulbs!!! 





This is what we are growing... It's an amaryllis.  The last time I grew one of these I got the leaves to come in... then... nothing.  No flower stalk.  No pretty flower.  So, we'll see how this one goes! 
I'm still excited to think that it could some much needed color while we are surrounded by nothing but all snow and gray!


Oh and I have to tell you that after I brought this home I saw this my own little excitement peaking out from the melting snow...

SQUEEEEE!!!  Tulips and daffodils peaking up!  Katie is the one who found them and nearly dug them up on me.  I told them to hang in and have a nice sleep for a few more months.  

(I'm not sure if that means that I may have planted them too shallow?  Either way, those sweet little plants are doing their job... making me smile like a big silly kid!) 
Bet you can't wait for spring either!



Getting my hands covered in dirt = happiness!



Starting to see the results of planting nearly 400 bulbs at my new house = happiness!



Thinking about how lovely spring is going to be = happiness!

Hi there! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I thought I'd stop by and say hello. I love your blog too, by the way. What a positive and uplifting concept!

I'm actually sort of new to using yoga podcasts so I can't claim to be an expert, but my blogger friend Yogademia (Kiki) always has great ideas. I found some good ideas in a few of her posts.

If you're into yoga, you'll enjoy Kiki's blog. She is really positive and always has good ideas for incorporating yoga into life.

Thanks again for the kind words. xoxo
