Happy Spring!

These last few weeks have proven to be busier than normal.  That means that things are really ramping up here in Colorado.  Spring is springing and Summer will be here before we know it!  I know it doesn’t seem like it in many parts of the nation (still experiencing the coldest temperatures on record!), but good things come to those who wait, right?

Easy for me to say I suppose.  We have been blessed with sunny, warmer weather as of late.  The Mister and I were even able to squeeze in our first hike of the year this weekend!


It was really nice to feel the warm sun on my face and get outside for a few hours.  It’s time to start shedding that winter fat!

I also planted my pre-mature baby plants this weekend.  I can’t wait to see them grow into little seedlings!!

I’m also trying to force flower bulbs for the first time.  I’ll let you know how that goes.  Any tips?  I’m trying to do this with Calla Lilies in particular.  Fingers crossed!


Speaking of babies, my best friend just had her first born!  I love Spring!  I love Spring babies!  I’m so happy to announce the newest addition to the extended family, Inara Nicole Lynn 🙂

Isn’t she precious?  Bonus points if you can guess where her first name came from!

As far as cooking goes, I’m sad to report that there hasn’t been a lot of that lately.  We either make quick, go-to meals, eat out or order in.  It’s not something that I’m proud of but it’s  happening.  The move, the new job, and everything else combined have left us little to no time or energy to put something new together.  I do aim to update a new recipe here soon though.  Thank you for bearing with me!

That begs the question, what will happen to this blog?  I don’t plan to let this online adventure die, but it might be time for a revamp or a new direction.  Perhaps a Life in Denver type blog?  Or Ordering In and Take Out blog?  Food and Restaurant reviews?  Hm… any thoughts?

Stay hungry my friends!

  1. What a cutie patootie baby!!! I have daffodils, amaryllis, and irises are all sending up leaves. And this year I have a lot of them! They are all worse than tiger lillies!! They will bloom soon. I love my flowers!!

    1. She is a cutie, isn’t she?? I love, love, love your flower selection! I looked for amaryllis to force but I had a hard time finding bulbs (for whatever reason), which is why I went with Calla Lilies. I hope I have as much luck with mine as you have with yours!

    1. Great idea! In the mean time, I’ve had the best luck with basil, rosemary and thyme here in Colorado. Rosemary is definitely the most apt to fight the dry, hot summers, but if you water your basil and thyme once or twice a day you should still have successful plants!
