Now you see it, now you don’t…

At last, it made its appearance… fierce, bold and welcome.

There is something special about the glorious golden light of the first spring sun. Skin tingles with unaccustomed warmth and freckles pop up out of nowhere.

Spring is a time to kick off those shoes and socks, cuddle up with my best girl and enjoy the view while relaxing in the shade of a parasol.

I felt rested and yet full of energy. I could feel the light bubbling through my veins.

We have to enjoy these golden moments, these precious handfuls of happiness – because you never know what the next day will bring.

In our case, more snow!

    Nooooooooooo! not more snow. Friend of mine going fishing with friends in Norway today. Records 4 degree temperatures and snow… he says there might be more sauna, skat, and snaps than fishing going on.
