Sunday was absolutely gorgeous. It wasn't quite as nice as Easter, but pretty close! It felt wonderful to be outside without a jacket and not have goosebumps instantly peppering my arms. Spring, it seems, has finally arrived after a long winter, and I am so very glad. The sun is warm, the trees are in full bloom, and the air is full of the smell of flowers and freshly mowed lawns (though ours is not one of them!). The sunlight was much too harsh in these pictures, and shows you how my pale skin can act as a reflector in direct sunlight! I jogged through the tall grass holding my skirt up with one hand and my camera with the other to capture pictures of the blossoms on our neighbor's plum tree. They were lovely against the blue sky!

I hope you all have had a lovely beginning to your week!

On side notes...
Olivia of Fresh Modesty recently posted about this exciting event, which I hope to join in:

And I have now passed the 50 follower mark! I'm incredibly excited and grateful to all of you! And I am working on a surprise in honor of this occasion, which will hopefully be finished soon!

I also have some tutorials on the way (I feel like I've promised these before, but they really are coming this time!), and there will hopefully be one up before the end of the week.(:

    I have no idea why I'm not following your blog! I saw your comment on my blog, and realized I hadn't seen any posts by you in awhile...perhaps because I'm not following you! :) LOL!
