waking up to spring

i know the weather is changing because i can't stop sneezing in the morning!

as others have put it recently, it seems like a lot of bloggers are coming out of hibernation... i hope this me as well! more and more sunshine is filling my sweet bedroom in the mornings, and i'm starting to think that maybe i'm not as cranky and curmudgeony as i thought. maybe i was just feeling the end of winter blues. when you really start craving just a little bright sun. maintaining my etsy shop was even difficult these past few months. the sun was only out while i was at work... i'd leave home in the dark, and come home in the dark, and then the weekends would be rainy and gloomy... not the best for photos.

my house hunt isn't going the best... i found the best spot, it had two covered porches, garden space, and GIANT closets (very important for my shop's ever growing inventory, so i'm finding...) - but sadly another couple beat me to it! I was heart broken, truly devastated after dreaming of how perfect life would have been there. so the search continues.

my grandparents have been clearing out their office and dispersing items out to the rest of the family. My mom was given a big box of photos from her aunt Wanda. Wanda was a fashionable career focused lady. She never had her own children, but left behind a beautiful collection of hats! This box had photos of family from waaaaay back. But also photos of my mom from when she was little to her early twenties. Photo's of my mom have always been hard to find, probably because not many were taken, so i have taken an interest in this box.

(above is a photo of my mom on the right with two of her little sisters in 1985 or so)

i've always been a little photo obsessed. i've dug through the boxes of old photos from my childhood a million times. never looking for anything in particular, just remembering. boxes of old family photos are like a candy store to me. even this blog is quite precious to me, not maintained as much as it once was, but its been 6 years this month! sometimes i wonder if i would remember my life as well without it...
