Signs of Spring

Unfortunately, the temperatures have dropped and that evil four letter word is scheduled to return!  SNOW! (Insert temper fit!)  I decided that I could let Jack Frost steal my happiness or I could go on my own hunt for Spring!  As the sun was setting, I took a walk in the back woods, hoping to find a color other than white or brown!  And guess what I discovered… green! And, what a beautiful green it was…

A thin layer of ice is all that remains…

This old log was covered with life…

I couldn’t help myself…I had to look more closely and see if anything was residing in that hole!

Look at that bright green life, living in that tiny hole!

If you pay close attention, life is happening, even in the darkest corners…

March is a time to celebrate the small gifts from Mother Nature.  There are times in life when beauty feels difficult to locate.  Remember to persevere…  Always look beyond the surface and discover the hidden beauty of life.

Grab your camera and join me in celebrating the Signs of Spring…

Signs of Spring Photo Challenge

On my hunt for Spring, I noticed this cutie pushing through the mulch!  It’s the little things in life that bring me so much joy.  It just goes to show that when we slow down and focus on the moment we are in, beautiful connections take place.  Today, don’t try to rush the things that need precious time to grow…

Grab your camera and join me in my Signs of Spring photo challenge, for the month of March!

Spring Fling in January!

Happy Spring…in January! We have had nothing but freezing cold weather and lots of snow this Winter.  But, today it was a balmy 54 degrees!  Only in Michigan!  The piles of snow melted and I could see green grass and lots of mud! Regardless, the animals were extremely happy and full of spunk today…

The meeting! And a beautiful meeting it was!

Magic has been lost, ever since Velvet crossed over.  Today, she seemed truly happy.  Although the two were separated by fencing, Magic often had her head over Frodo’s fence to saying hello.  Both critters were relaxed and had a beautiful day together! This made my heart bubble with joy!

This past week has been extremely difficult, yet beautiful all at the same time. We said goodbye to a dear friend and welcomed a sweet new addition, to Indigo Acres.  Frodo has been a true gift, in so many unexpected ways.   I feel extremely thankful and blessed…

I spent much time with Frodo today.  I cried happy tears, while connecting with him in his stall.  I also cried tears of sadness, missing my old friend.  But, when I looked into his eyes, something magical happened…I was reminded of an old friend.  What an incredible gift…

I have a feeling 2018 is going to be a beautiful year at Indigo Acres!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
