Springtime

Every spring, just as the weather starts to get nicer and the days start to get longer and we start to think that we might finally crawl out from under our blankets… Todd gets SLAMMED at work.

So, while Margot and I have had some opportunities to enjoy the springtime weather during the day, Mr. Moore is usually slaving away at the office bringing home the… fakin’ bacon, I guess….

But here we are, walking, nursing, playing, reading and generally enjoying the sunshine.

I’ve been particularly inspired to write this post today since I am looking out the window at grey skies.  Hopefully, if it’s grey where you are while you’re reading this, Margot’s smiley springtime face will bring some sunshine to your day.

And in case you are super jealous of our incredible picnic blanket… too bad, there’s only one other like it in the world, and my sister has it.  My mom made them out of old jeans when we were small.

The pockets on the jeans have been used for storage, trash collecting during picnics, as barbie sleeping bags,and  to warm our toes on chilly nights.  Margot has already christened our blanket with spit-up and I am so looking forward to her enjoying the blanket for many spring seasons to come.

  1. Our blankets are awesome!!! Sometimes there is even a surprise left in there from the last time we used it if I forget to check every pocket!
