oh glorious spring! welcome welcome!

i've gotta say, april sends little splashes of JOY thru my soul!
here in ottawa, the long long wintry season seems to be melting away in exchange for delightful days of puddle splashing, bright umbrellas & cute rainboots (and it helps to have a puddle-loving little one, too, to add to the fun!) ... thank you, april!

now i know the rain is not such a welcome transition for others. so many folks are feeling the not-fun-at-all plight of rains & storms & floods right now... thinking of all of you in these difficult days.

in ottawa, we usually have this seemingly brief, wonderful, mini-rainy season, and i gotta say, i love it! the unique tones, the fabulous crisp light, the air full of moisture, the cool winds, the hopeful greys that blanket all of the greens & flowers & shoots growing quietly underfoot, just waiting to explode into colour... so invigorating! once upon a time when we lived in thailand, i saw firsthand what an AmAZinG thing a rainy season could really be! the celebrations that filled the country with joy were so inspiring! i feel like that today! so thankful!

so, to the *just right* little bit of glorious precipitation that comes our way in raindrops this month - i'm so thankful! you're a welcome welcome sign of spring & more good things to come! here's to the hopefulness of the month!
