A Photo for Your Day.

Hello and good morning,

This photo may seem very simple or average to some, but as I lied in bed on this rainy Saturday morning I looked over and watched the cool breeze push and pull our bedroom curtain open and close and let glimpses of sunlight spill into the bedroom. I love admiring the little things in life that sometimes go unnoticed. To me this was a beautiful sign of Spring here in Indiana….finally.

 

I hope you all enjoyed this post! What is a sign of Spring to you? I’d love to hear.

Thank you so much for reading!
