The season is finally changing....

I've been trying really hard not to post about Spring, for fear of somehow jinxing the impending arrival of the warmer weather, the sunnier skies, or the cheerful chirping of birds in the morning. We've had two absolutely beautiful days of spring-like weather here in northwest Indiana, and I'm finally ready to break my silence (my apologies to fellow NW Indiana residents, as we're now almost certain to get another two feet of snow!). The time change has been unusually difficult for me this year - as the guys that I work with at my regular 9-5 can attest to! I don't think I've been on time a single day this week, and while I'm grateful for the extra sunshine in the morning, my body is screaming for an extra hour of sleep in the morning, and I have a stack of empty coffee cups to prove it!

I'm working on a few custom pieces this week, and preparing for my son's 9th birthday this coming weekend - we're celebrating with our family with some yummy Star Wars cake and ice cream! We celebrated with Cars last year, as you can see from the picture above. I'd love to say I could take credit for the cute cake, but alas, I cannot! Thank goodness the local grocery store has a great bakery within to help me out when I'm in a pinch for time! I'm still undecided as to what to buy for him, but he's been certain to provide me with a specific list of ideas to help me out! He's a great kid, and I'm blessed to be his mother... I think I'm most devastated by the fact that he's halfway to becoming a legal adult, ha!

Wishing all of you a beautiful day, peace and blessings!
