That is the thing about living here in Singapore I never get to experience the four seasons so I truly appreciate all the travelling during different times :D

This is so nice.

Thanks for the encouraging words in the last part of this really cold winter in Norway. I know it is spring when the snow melts and my snowbells come up. It won't be too long now. Love the cartoon, yep remember when my kids looked like that.

I love the thought of #6. After a cold winter without the comfort of snow....I am ready for spring!

And then there is one of my favorite spring quotes, an old Kiowa Proverb: "Walk lightly in the spring; Mother Earth is pregnant"

Thanks for visiting my blog.
