She’s Here!

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. I have always been hopelessly in love with spring, so when she returns after a long winter, it always makes my heart smile. And today just so happened to be one of the most beautiful starts to spring I have ever seen. From a morning walk to an afternoon on the beach to a sunset stroll around Pea Island, most of the day was spent outside enjoying the warm sunshine. If today had decided to continue on forever, I don’t think I would have complained one bit… Happy Spring my friends.

It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!  ~Mark Twain

Monday… Mapshot?

I took this picture on Sunday with the intention of using it for my Sunday Snapshot, but I forgot to post it on Sunday. So here it is Monday, and I am wanting to share my Sunday Snapshot, only now it is a taken-on-Sunday-posted-on-Monday Snapshot. Unfortunately, Monday Snapshot does not sound nearly as smooth as Sunday Snapshot, so I am going to call it my Monday Mapshot, just because I can.

And may this serve as my reminder to pay attention to what day of the week it is so that I can avoid this confusion in the future…
