... Bunnies, flowers, butterflies, and all manner of goodness (chocolate?)!

Well, at least at Vassalissa, a chocolate boutique by my house.

I think spring is my favorite season. It used to be summer, which is now a close second. I love all of the "spring" colors; the bunnies, the lambs, the flowers, especially in Northern VA. I could go on about the sunshine after the rains and the fresh winds whipping the tender green grass in the fields and tossing the flower petals through the air in Loudoun County. And the amazing scent of spring! The plum and cherry blossoms! The azaleas! Crocus, daffodils and hyacinths! The redbuds and dogwoods!! Oh, I could go on. I miss it!

Sorry for all of you who are celebrating fall, it's hard for me to enjoy fall because it's a sad season; everything is dying and it means winter is coming and I am not a fan of winter. At all.

Back to BsAs and Vassalissa, I can never get over how freaking cute this place is, even when it's closed. Look at all of those yummy truffles under little pieces of plexiglass! And the chandelier! I am dying for a chandelier.



Happy spring!!!!!!

so funny to hear you talk of spring as we're heading into fall. But yes, the most wonderful season.

I know, if you think you're confused by this, imagine how I feel! Having left in Feb. (summer) to go to AZ to have a baby in March (spring) to come back in May (fall) and now it's Sept. (spring again) ... add to that making plans to leave Dec. (summer) to D.C. (freezing cold winter) and then turn around and go to Africa (summer). Craziness and fun packing times!
