I love the scents and colors that signal spring’s arrival.
Freshly mowed lawns and foliage bursting forth from slumber…

My mood elevating from bad to good or good to better…
And with the many trips between my work’s split shift and Big Guy’s extracurricular activities, it’s been a veritable bouquet of uplifted vibes.
