marvelous march

march has been an excellent month so far. the weather, well, is marvelous with a capital M. we have literally spent every waking hour outside. from the moment lucy gets on the bus till the last sliver of sunshine dips behind the hills we are out in the fresh air.  the windows are open and birds are chirping- and and and...i think i'm in love with spring. fall is usually my favorite- but something about this spring is so great. i joke with ty that every day the tree leaves are bursting and growing- and so am i. i wake up every morning to a larger burgeoning belly and i'm learning to love it. (somehow, in my crazy thoughts i believed that a healthy pregnancy means happy, happy, happy-but the bigger i get the more depressed & worried i get about, well, being big. but that's an entire post in itself and completely vain and shallow minded). the Lord has sent me a baby, and a healthy body to carry it- and i am not going to take that for granted for one second.

i reread To Kill a Mockingbird for either my 4th or 5th time. i couldn't remember. but it is one of my all time favorite books. if you haven't ever read it, you really, truly, should. if you read it and didn't like it, you really, truly should.

the only sad part about march is a dear, sweet friend i've made since moving here just...wait for it...moved. i know right? i just moved, no one else can do that! although i am very happy for her and her family, she is missed very much already.  luckily, we had a lovely going away party for her at our house and watched her girls on a fun play date. here are a few pictures to prove what we've been up to.

PICKING FLOWES (THEY'RE REALLY WEEDS-BUT SHHH)

OUR TREES EXPLODED OVERNIGHT
AND SO DID I- 25 weeks

this weekend we've been watching the sad aftermath of the earth quake in japan.  i can't wrap my mind around all the devastation there must be there. it's really too much for me to take in- but my Church announced today a need for more hygiene kits to send over- and that makes me happy i can do something to help out.

You look incredible! I have been missing you and our springtime picnics in the park. Whoa Phoebe's hair is getting long!
