Coming home!

Three years ago, Emily and Matt took off for Austin, Texas.  They have had a new opportunity come up for Matt, and they are moving back to the Chicago area, as of today!
The trip to Texas was the two of them, plus Emily's dog, Cohen.  They have since bought a house (on the market soon), got married, and got another dog for Matt, Vinny the boxer. I hope that the looooong drive today and tomorrow goes well for them!


Emily and Matt at a recent event in Austin. Love those two!

Nice photo of Cohen (beagle mix). I've missed him!

Vinny!

Happy Easter, Happy Spring!


Happy Easter! 
We have had nice weather this past week, which has caused the garden to spring up almost in front of your eyes - like a Disney movie!  Ploop, ploop, ploop - voila, it's spring!

Dora, not so patiently waiting for Scott to throw the ball!

Little Buddy, not thrilled with wearing bunny ears!
Our apple tree starting to pop, our neighbor's redbud trees getting ready to burst, brilliant hostas...spring has sprung!  We were wearing winter coats in the past week!



Happy little violas, about the only bedding plants that are hardy enough for this time of year.  How cute are they!

More violas in my hanging basket (photo bomber is Scott).  So glad we finished our massive mulching/weeding project yesterday (when this was taken).  We had a big rain during the night, and everything is so pretty today.
Happy Easter, Happy Spring!
