Spring Family Traditions

Since I just had a baby two months ago, I'm really enjoying getting out on a neighborhood stroll several times a week, whether it's for a leisurely stroller ride with baby L or a fast-paced jog to get rid of this baby weight. The flowers in my 'hood are absolutely gorge. The candy-colored tulips in the yard above I captured almost remind me of my shoe closet. <blush> 

Spring is finnnnnally in the air! In fact, it was a balmy 84 degrees here yesterday. Gotta love the south! Something we like to do as a family every spring is visit the daffodil festival just a short drive away from our home. It's called Wye Mountain and it's acres and acres of beautiful yellow and white daffodils. It makes for some stunning family photos and the weather this year was incredible. They even had a couple of trees that little C insisted upon climbing...of course. baby L was just along for the ride in the baby carrier this year, but I can't wait for her to really fall in love with the flowers next year. I can see her all dressed up in her spring best now! ;) 
So even though winter has finally said see ya, I still take my coffee seriously (in fact, we made a Starbucks run-through on the way to see the daffodils!). Granted, different seasons call for different flavors, so right now I'm loving the Spring Blend. This medium roast truly complements the season, crafted with beans from Latin America and East Africa. The notes are spirited and juicy, a balance of milk chocolate and sweet orange notes. In fact, that's one of my fav combos, so I knew it would be a hit. Now I'm trying to find a good hiding spot so my husband doesn't drink it all. The down side of having a family full of coffee lovers...sigh...

Happy coffee drinking and happy spring, y'all!
