Spring has sprung around here! We have been so busy! Here is a quick sampling of what life has been like around the Morris house. First up, I really got the gardening bug this season. That's a problem for multiple reasons. Primarily because I am totally an "end result" kind of dreamer. I know what I want before I know how much work and/or financial responsibility will go into producing said result. It is also a problem because I have a HUGE, VAST list of allergies most of which are Spring-related. Pine pollen, Bradford Pear tree blooms, etc. So this is what I have been doing while working in my yard:
On a side note, if you remember my post here about redoing my front porch bench, I finally got around to accessorizing it this spring (yes, almost a yr later). Have a look:
What else have I been up to? Well, I got together with one of my besties, Lorie. She came in town and we had a blast going out for a girls' night out right here in Pelham. If you haven't been by Tyler Navarre's, you should check it out. It's a fun li'l place. Here we are (from L-R Lorie, Jenny and me pulling our best "Cheeeese")
Rob has had a great Spring! He is still loving his 4K program at school. But recently he got to play hookie so he could attend a very exciting event: He went with his Mimi and Rocky to Talladega so Rocky and their next door neighbor could do the Dale Jarrett Driving Experience. Rob also got to do the coveted "Gentlemen, Start Your Engines" call!
I am getting really busy with upcoming Relay For Life of North Shelby. This charity and this event has captured my heart. Yes, I have watched friends and loved ones become Survivors and I have also lost friends and loved ones too soon. But there is just something so powerfully hopeful and so emotionally moving about the whole Relay experience. Our Relay will be at Pelham High School on Friday, May 20th at 6:00 PM. I am the Ceremonies Chairperson which -- if you ask me -- is the, ahem, most important.job.ever. Nah, I'm just giving a selfish plug there. But I am the one responsible for writing the night's ceremonies and scripts and coordinating with the Entertainment Chair for speakers, emcees, etc. In addition to my role on the committee, I have been raising funds for my own team. We recently sold knockout roses as living memorials.

Rob has been playing his 2nd season of T-Ball. We have a totally new team this year. It is wild that Rob is considered a "veteran" but I can tell he has so much more confidence in the batter's box and just overall. It may help that Rob's daddy is our Head Coach, too! I have no pictures loaded right now, so I sense a separate post solely T-Ball related coming soon!
I've been squeezing in family time whenever possible! Squeezies! Love you Laura Jean!
Wow, the above is a rough shot of me!
Ahh. That's much, much better! 'Cause, you know...it's all about me, right?
