Happy Spring!

So far this season, we have had amazing weather in Flagstaff. I say this with slight trepidation, given the fact that it is not unheard of to have an insane snowstorm bombard us in mid-April. 

April is one of my favorite months.... it's a beautiful time of year in the desert where I grew up; Ah yes, Spring in Phoenix, where we clung to the the last sigh of sweet weather before the hot breath of summer melted the lip balm right off of our mouths. While I do miss those mild winters, I'll never miss the necessity of having to use oven mitts to buckle my seat-belt  in July (true story). So bring on the the April blizzard if I am to be rewarded with 75 degree temperatures on Independence Day...

This April will also be the month I turn 40...and hopefully I am going into the next decade of my life a kinder, a stronger, a wiser, a less awkward, and a more courageous person.  After reading that,  it sounds very much like I need to pay a visit to the Wizard.  (Which by the way, who else has seen the new movie? I loved it, but it's possible that I might have been slightly mesmerized by that high wattage James Franco smile :-) )

For those of you that celebrate, Happy Easter! And lovely weekend to you all. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a bit of sunshine, I hope you have the time to get out there and collect a bit of vitamin D.

 I'll post more soon about my forthcoming classes at Whimzy and Paper Tales.
