    much love…

  4. This season finds me in my cocoon as well. Waiting patiently by the fire.

  5. I think this is how we all start to feel as winter continues… you’ve expressed this so beautifully.

  6. I treasure the slowing down of winter…and the slow leaning toward spring

  7. Butterflies. Such a great delight in all its forms and stages.

  8. you have filled me with infinite hope!
