I know that "spring" is a few weeks off yet, but it's MARCH and we're getting CLOSE and I took the Christmas wreath off the door and replaced it with THIS today!!
I also took down the light display after this photo was taken, and the Christmas stockings were put away, too. I wasn't into the holidays much this year, but I do like to honor (and admire) my own handiwork and that of others for as long as I can -- I stitched all of our Christmas stockings and my sister made me the pinecone wreath (with pinecones she HANDPICKED HERSELF, she'd be quick to add). The deadline for stocking removal is usually St. Patrick's Day, though I've been known to let 'em go 'til Easter.
Anyway, we'll spring forward in a week and my morning commute will be dark again for a bit, but it's coming people. Hippity-hoppity, spring it on its way!
