Hello Spring- I Love You

This morning we awoke to the song of spring (and crying children- but whatevz). I threw on a floaty dress and the young man remarked 'oh mummy- you're dressing up like a butterfly'. Symbolic or not- Hello Spring, I love you.

I then danced around in front of the camera like a total loser

We spent the morning basking in the warmth of the sun at our local park. I met with the most amazing bunch of women who have walked the path of parenthood before me, they assure me that it will be okay. I believe them (park ladies- you make my heart lighter). 

And seriously, what an amazing blogging community we have here. A place to vent and be honest. A place to support and be supported.

Happy Spring

  14. Oh, how I love spring too! I'm not quite in a sun dress (bitter, not quite butterfly!), but am definitely basking in the sunshine that Melbourne has offered on its first spring day.

    May there be more pretty butterfly dress days for you!

  27. i just read the link there to the sleep post, and my goodness it made me giggle, not for the torture of it all, but the pure and honest understanding, and the final line: 'oh sleep, why do you taunt me' was perfection. looks like you're looking on the bright side, a beautiful picture. x ashley
