What I Love the most about spring is being able to be out with my kiddos and starting our garden each year. We make sure to always plant a new item we’ve never ate before and it’s pretty fun. Looking forward to making some cute outfits to take pics with/in there this year since I have ventured in making clothing this past month. (:

This dress is just precious! I can’t wait to make one for my granddaughter!
I love to see the earth reawakening after the cold of winter. The flowers and grassed coming forth. A hint here and there until one day you see fields of green and know that summer isn’t far behind.
