april / / amy & ashley ramble and roam,

 

It was a day built by the sounds of birds, and if you listened close enough, you just might hear buds crackling and turning into leaf. It was as if the Springtime was sitting on every ankle, just waiting for the perfume of yellow violets to spill.  I could taste the modest flowers and the wild cherries on the horizon.  When I squinted, I could see the green green grass waiting to form.

 It was a Mid Afternoon designed to make those who stood on the hills feel wealthy.

 
 
 
The scents and the sky reminded me of when I was a little girl. I remember watching through classroom windows in April, waiting for Winter's weights to leave. I'd count the clouds and cross my fingers, hoping my little prayers would bring bumble bees and ladybugs. I had no time for mathematics or making sculptures out of clay.  I only had thoughts for Springtime. 

The Spring has been, and always will be, an ally, and a teacher.  You can't use twigs in the winter the way you can in Spring, you can't catch ants, you can't sleep on hills, you can't wander carelessly into the woods, and you certainly can't sulk or laugh in the blooming garden. 

I know Spring hasn't fully arrived, and we're still kissing the tail of winter, but when Spring does arrive, and I'll no longer have to cross my fingers, you'll find me bare legged and belly flopped underneath the daffodils.

 
 
I was very happy to spend the day Rambling and Roaming with Ashley  We started the date with a bowl of oatmeal. My bowl was filled with calories, also known as bananas, peanut butter, and brown sugar.  Ashley's bowl was filled with healthy goodness, also known as apples, and dried cranberries.

We ate our oatmeal, talked of things that happen in life, and drove around looking for a nice place to take pictures.  

 

We ended up finding ourselves standing, sitting, and modeling behind a school yard.  The wind came up for a visit, which tossed my hair like lettuce in a salad pot, but that's what you get for growing your hair long.

 Besides the breeze, it was a beautiful day for picture taking, and collecting thoughts with Ashley.
Even the prairie dogs of the field gathered to witness the Spring air.

  9. Oh my goodness, how beautiful!

    The amount of time you must put into one post alone is incredible. Your descriptions of nature and chronicling of the day enhance how I see the outfits you post.

    My favorite picture is the one where you are standing and your friend is jumping. Does that represent your friendship?

    I actually almost bought this dress from Modcloth (best store ever) - now regretting not doing so. :(

    What a great blog.
