Overdue sunshine. Literally and figuratively.

Check it out, y'all!  The sun is shining on our corner of New England and Spring is finally here!

 Leaves!  Leaves!

Ooo!  Ahhh!

There is something about this time of year that makes me intrinsically happy.  The little red buds that give way to bright, new green leaves.  The pop of daffodils around every corner.  The burst of color on the blooming trees. Every day when I drive to work, there is some other part of Spring making itself known.  Happy, happy.

Another thing that makes me happy is when other bloggers that I stalk respect give me a little sunshiny love!

I received this some time ago from the lovely Rtacia at Fluffy Bunnies.  She shares my passion for the decadent Cadbury Creme Eggs. She makes me get teary.  She makes me laugh.  She makes me think.  She is a relatively new find for me and I am so grateful I stumbled across her fabulous blog.  Thanks for continuing to provide sunshine in my life, Stacia!

I feel a little silly passing on the love - since most of the blogs I follow have pretty big followings of their own and you probably all read them anyway.  But I'm going to mention a few new blogs that I have recently found and was instantly smitten with.

Aging Mommy.  Smart, funny, slightly anti-social like yours truly - this is a Mommy you want to hang out with.

The Unbitten Tongue.  From a woman who just couldn't take not being able to be totally herself on her blog. So she started another one.  Cool, huh?

Deckside Thoughts.  A fellow New Englander. Need I say more?  And I don't even hold her obsessive love of NASCAR against her.

Hope this bit of sunshine brightens your day, just as it did mine!
