The Day of the Crocus
The day my little crocuses pop up in my front yard has to be one of my favorite days of the year. I dream of a day when half my front yard is covered in their beautiful blooms. I also got a wonderful surprise in the mail, some wonderfully smelling handmade organic lemongrass and calendula soap from a dear mommy friend from a nursing mommies' group I was in starting when my oldest daughter was only 2 months old. My daughter's 11 now, and my sweet friend has moved far away. Getting her sweet note and handmade soap is like seeing the crocuses pop up each year. Now matter how long it has been since I've seen them, they always bring me great joy, and I can count on them being there year after year for me :)
