I collected these hand-carved wooden bunnies when I lived in Nebraska. As Easter approaches, I set them out and enjoy their company. I first bought the carvings simply because they were cute and I love rabbits. But as my collection grew and years passed, the bunnies came to be a reminder of the passing years. When JT was small, the bunnies were placed on a higher shelf. Toddler JT liked to gently hold each bunny in his hands; sometimes I’d let him tuck one of the more durable rabbits in his pocket. Their presence in this window sill (next to some framed family pictures) is both a reminder of Spring and a tour of some very happy memories.
I am weary of waking up each day to see a new alert about Donald Trump’s screw-ups. I like to read (I just finished As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley), garden, cook, and talk.
I love….thinking about spring, daydreaming while I swim, making lists, fresh mango slices, white sneakers, cheerful pennants, spring cardigans, #somelovely on Instagram, Spring Break plans, anticipating my morning coffee, Spring bulbs, bunnies, cheerful stories, pinning my hair in a bun, bright colors, stripes, pretty hair pins, tulips, and the way a workout makes me feel.
