You’ve Got Mail!

That reminds me of AOL - those were the good ol’ days.  Did anyone else instantly think of that? 

Unfortunately (or fortunately) the days of AOL are gone. Please tell me you're not still on AOL. But, we are still getting snail mail.  Let’s be honest, most of the mail we get these days is junk.  Every once in awhile, we will receive a sweet card from a family member or an actual invitation to a party.  These things are exciting, who doesn’t love the anticipation of what’s inside that envelope?

Here in the midwest we have been seeing warmer temperatures, consistently.  Hello Spring!  This also means there are plants and flowers EVERYWHERE!  I mean, when Target busts out their garden and patio stuff, you can’t just walk past it.

With plants and flowers on my mind, I couldn’t help but think about the poor tree that has lived on our porch for years.  Friends, it died this winter.  I don’t know how it happened, but it did.  That was THE ONLY THING I could keep alive.
