Week 2

Hi Shanon!
Yesterday I bought my first bouquet of tulips for this year! They're so crisp and fresh and I like the way the stems almost squeek when you hold them together :) I'm hoping that these white flowers will lead the way to spring and to the return of the light!
The buying of the tulips did at least coincide with warmer weather. After several weeks of freezing all day and sleeping in pajamas, thick socks and extra sweaters, I'm finally starting to thaw! Not that winter will be over any time soon in this part of the world, but the mild weather is still making me dream of spring flowers, fresh grass and endless amounts of light :)
I hope you'll have a lovely week!



Hi Moa!
I hope your week went well! I accomplished getting to the Louvre exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts this week-- on a freezing cold day when the roads were a mess! I'm really glad I made it. Walking through a gallery or a museum is so calming and mesmerizing, not to mention cozy! Especially on this particular day. The one troubling experience I had was getting to the "front" of the building to get this "postcard" for you. The main door is on the side and I couldn't find a way to the front without walking around it from the outside. I was frozen! Ahhh, the things we do for the shot we want... ; )


  1. Oh my you girls are having such a wonderful time! I adore those gorgeous white tulips! Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

  2. Thanks so much Jacqueline! I really am enjoying myself, getting mail and postcards is always nice :) I hope you'll have a lovely weekend too!

  3. Hi there Jacqueline, sweetie! =) So glad that you are enjoying it as much as we are!
