Last week I went under the knife. I have been freaked out about the possibility of surgery for some time now but it just had to happen. Luckily, everything turned out just fine and I am so relieved to be done with it. I spent most of last week resting and recovering (aka watching Netflix). When I was finally ready to go outside after a few days, it was spring!

One of the great things about living in the DC area is the beautiful landscapes in springtime. Although I was not up to fighting the crowds at the Cherry Blossom festival, we have plenty of trees in our neighborhood that are full of lovely blooms.

Spring is a time for rebirth, renewal and regrowth. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to experience Spring in my surroundings and within.


  1. Yay! Glad to hear that the recovery is going well. If you have extra down/recovery time, you should totally check out Downton Abbey on Netflix Instant Play. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite series, and I'm not even all of that huge of a fan of period pieces. Yay spring!

  2. Thanks Lindsay! You're actually the second person to suggest Downtown Abbey - I will definitely check that out!
