April's Everyday Joys

Uncovering Everyday Joys
and
A Spring Photo Story

The end of March brought the last snow of the season. Winter fought valiantly against spring for her last HURRAH. Her victory was short-lived as this beautiful scene was melted by the afternoon.


And of course, how could I share my joys without including the MOST amazing gift that my Father has given me!


My joy continued as I shared in the bridal shower of Maribeth, one of my Timothys. She and I have a special bond that is hard to put qualifications on. I can't believe that she is getting marred in less than 3 weeks.


Oh! And how much fun to share the joy of babysitting our goddaughter. She is growing so fast and is just SUCH a sweetheart!


What a joy to share in the wedding of my adoptive-like brother in New York!


And Mom and I took advantage of the weekend in New York to hit Manhattan.
I LOVE NYC! {More detailed posts to come on that trip}


The beauty of spring has been especially poignant for me
this year after a year of winter.




And then Easter weekend with my family....I just love these people!!

{Love my cuzzy, Michaela! I was 17 when she was born and she is well into her teenage years now. So crazy!}


And my two "kitties/kiddies" keep me filled with joy
with their quirks and antics
They have enjoyed spring as much as me this year!

And, well, I just can't leave off of my current joys {tongue in cheek}, William & Kate and their impending wedding day tomorrow has me thrilled.
Arno thinks I am slightly crazy!! Haha!

Thanks for visiting me at Pursuing Heart! And I noticed here that you are a MK and lived in Haiti ... I am also a MK, and lived in Japan for the first 17 years of my life!

You asked about the freezer meal days I have with three of my daughters. My daughters each bring ingredients for one dish which we make four of ... and I provide two recipes. So we make 20 meals altogether, 5 for each of us. We could do more, but we also have a houseful of children to care for as we cook (and three of them are two year-old boys!).

Hi Lindsey! I'm always curious what yummy post I'll find here in the jam with you. This was just a lot of fun to see YOU through the joyful pieces of your world. (So sweet when you said God's most amazing gift.. then made me laugh with your ending photo!)

You are so beautiful, Lindsey - with your vibrant red hair and adventurous heart.

I love the pictures of the blossoms in bloom. I think spring is my favorite time of year.

@eof777
Thank you for stopping by, and you are so right! The celebration of all things spring is SUPER delightful!

@Holley Gerth Oh, Holley! The fact that you not only stopped by but took time to comment here blesses me more than words can say...you might think I am silly, but I really think you are awesome and you encourage me so much!

@Cherry
I am sorry that I have taken so long to get back to you. I am looking forward to RE-visiting your page and asking you some more questions about your MK life and where you raised your kids. Thanks for the freezer meal tips!

@The Reason You Come Thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind words!

@Bonnie Gray LOL! Thank you! What a sweet compliment! I find inspiring curiosity in people is quite a delightful feat! So...yay! Yeah...had to throw a little British royalty in there...have been fascinated with British history for YEARS!

@Stephanie
Oh, thank you! I always know that your compliments are so heartfelt! Fall has always been my favorite season, but after moving hemispheres at the end of winter and experiencing a bit of "deja vu" with fall/winter....I think spring just might win out on my favorite list this year!
