Say what you will about New England, some love it, but allot of us complain about the dramatic weather, myself included at times; but there is nothing quite like our change in seasons. I feel as though the older I get, the more magical Spring seems, year after year. Which is odd, because with most other things in life age has dissipated the magic a bit, but not with Spring. At times the beauty and energy it creates can be a bit over whelming as the colors, smells and old familiar landscapes take hold once again, familiar but also so foreign as winter slowly recedes. I am fascinated. In awe of natures wisdom and truly never tire of it's show. Spring is a time for us to open up not just our windows but ourselves, as nature dances around us in this most glorious time of year.
Ever since we bough our first home, Aaron and I have been talking about beginning the daunting task of taking down the wallpaper that has covered the walls (in every room). While we have lived with it for several years, we finally had enough of the stripes in the living room and were ready to take it on and make it a top priority. I think we were both terrified of starting this project and getting in over our heads with this very time consuming task, but the paper just had to go!!
To our surprise the project went as smooth as it could go.....Maya was a great help too. One of the hardest parts was actually picking a color that we all could live with. To my surprise we ended up picking a fabulous blue/gray called "ozone" and we love it!!
Tree's and the super moon combine for a eerie effect. (Below) Branches reflect the early spring light, appearing almost wet as they reach towards the sun's warming rays. Perhaps my largest source of inspiration; trees. I absolutely am obsessed with all types of tree's. From their various silhouettes, shadows and colors all things tree's make me feel connected, rooted and refreshed.
